Great historical fantasy
With a story that drew me in from the very first page, and realistically recreated scenes from China to the Wild West, this book wouldn't allow me to put it down. Following Chi-Yen across the ocean reveals the power of perseverance and wit. Sometimes it can find magic that has the power to change the world.
