What a sprawling and unexpected epic journey this was. Zhu‘s tale is equal parts breathtaking, persevering, and tragic. Definitely recommend.
War epics are not my cup of tea, but if they're yours you might enjoy this one! Set in ancient China and packed with destiny, epic battles, political intrigue, betrayal, the occasional ghost, and clashes between Chinese and Mongol powers, this book tells the epic story of a girl who didn't starve to death claiming a name and destiny that might not have been hers. #HistoricalFiction #China #AsianHistory #LGBTQ
