Growing up on the moon, Xingyin is used to the solitude, unaware that she is being hidden from the Celestial Emperor who exiled her mother for stealing the elixir of immortality. But when Xingyin’s magic begins to come to the surface and her existence is at risk of being discovered, she is forced to flee her home and leave her mother behind. Alone and afraid she seizes the opportunity to memorize alongside the emperors son, mastering archery and magic. To save her mother she must embark on a perilous quest, confronting legendary creatures and vicious enemies across the soil and skies.
I didn’t expect to like this so much but I was surprised that I love it. The writing was beautiful and had me gripped from the first chapter. Sue Lynn Tan really sets the scene well. This was fast paced and kept me turning the pages with the beautiful world, monsters, magic and legends. Xingyin is a really likeable character and you really feel connected to her as she learns approximately herself and the worlds around her. Plus the cover is absolutely stunning. I cannot wait for the sequel to be released.
