It was very good but graphic in a few little places. Wasnt as gory as the Hunger Games but graphic. Over all four and half stars.

When I stumbled on this author, I never realized the wondrous ride I was in for. I already have a vivid imagination and this story just simply made it soar. In my imagination, I was able to travel to where this story took place, see all the sites explained and even imagined a few for myself. The story was descriptive and thrilling and while I do understand that it was geared to a younger audience, I still would have liked a more concrete ending - I mean the ending felt rushed almost as if he was told to stop writing. However, I would indeed recommend this book to all avid readers and those who are looking for adventure.

This book was captivating and fast-paced, interesting, and quite different from anything I've ever read before. I guess I would probably classify it as Chinese Fantasy. Miu Miu learns on her fifteenth birthday that she is the daughter of a legendary sword maker, who was killed by the Emperor after crafting a magical sword for him. Miu Miu takes up the quest for vengeance and with her father's blue sword, the mate to the Emperor's, and a jade necklace with the name of her betrothed, she sets off for the capital. On the way she meets Tong Ting, her betrothed, and together they continue on the journey. But can they defeat the Emperor without losing their lives? Well-written and exciting, this was an extremely enjoyable read. Recommended!
