    This is a fun, quirky retelling of a traditional Chinese tale that is a
    nice choice for fantasy and romance lovers alike. The plot is really
    captivating. I wasn’t too familiar with the Chinese story before
    beginning this book, but there is a wonderful sense of mystery in these
    pages which invokes that oriental magic I’d imagined in their stories.
    The characters are well done and amusing, with Alice being the one I
    enjoyed most. There was a strength to her personality that I think would
    have worked well for the protagonist. In this case the heroine, Caitlin,
    is a bit too passive for my taste. She is not really the take-action
    kind of girl, which, for me, makes her a little less interesting. The
    way the story was told, through different points of view, was quite
    effective and nicely handled. There was no confusion as to who was
    speaking at any given moment, which can sometimes be tricky. There were
    a few grammatical issues, but overall it’s in good shape. If you enjoy
    reading books that are a bit out of the ordinary, a bit different, then
    this one could be for you.

    This book is a retelling of a Chinese legend.

    The plot overall was captivating, Chinese legends are a divergent reading material than what I am used to. This book had a lot of potential with the concept of the Chinese folklore thrown in and idea of a next life. Also, in a world full of fantasy novels the Chinese magic elements are a nice waylay from the mainstream witch.

    The plot needed to slow down a bit and have a little more explanation added in. Also there was a certain amount of story development lacking; I felt I had a lot of unanswered questions at the end. The insta-love went a little too far for me in this book, it did not seem real at all and at times the relationship verged on fake and awkward.

    Note: I received this book from the author in exchange for an honest review.
