    So this is the first Mary Fan book I've read. I've come across some reviews of her other books. I now know she is an author to look out for though. This was just, WOW! The book synopsis and cover sucked me in right away, I just I knew I just had to read it and that I would love it. ...

    3.5 stars, rounded to four because dragons Anlei's village is under attack from strange ghost monsters?and all seems well when the viceroy swoops in and saves them with his fleet of mechanical dragons. Until he demands the village's famed (and worthless) River Pearl as tribute?a...

    When I came across this book on Netgalley the cover immediately drew my attention. A Dragon and the typography of the yellow title. I like. Of course the title mentioning a dragon helped. There are dragons in here, just not quite the way you?d think. That didn?t stop me from enjoyi...

    I'm a massive fan of Mary Fan, who wrote one of my favorite YA SF books of all time, Starswept (see my review!). So when I saw the announcement for this book, I knew I just had to read it. A hero's journey through a fantastical Qing dynasty China, where we have steampunk technology mix...

    It feels like the first half of this was a book I would have DNF'd, while the second half was an enjoyable, exciting action/fantasy story. So it definitely could have been stronger in my opinion, but I finished it feeling pleased. The writing especially began a bit rough. The beginn...
