    great for teens and adults

    Wow I have never heard anything about the mythology of China. Just a little bits here and there. It was confusing for me to get it straight but sounds like others do to or they mean different things in different regions and different names. I enjoyed reading about them.
    Emma is a kindergarden teacher in Hong Kong from down under. Emma has one private student she teaches english to Simone. Simone father is Mr. Chen a rich powerful man. The owner of the school Miss Kwok wants Emma to spy on Mr. Chen. Emma resigns and is offered full time nannie position, which is a livein job for 5000 US dollars a month. Emma wants to know what his work is and is it legal. She is told that it is and after you have been here awhile he will tell her.
    Simone is a 4 yr old girl, who is charming and loving. Who is excited to have Emma full time nannie. Emma has different lessons she is learning,piano, violin,horseback riding, english, martial arts and demon fighting.
    Leo is called a black Lion he is over 6 foot a big black body gaurd. He will protect Simone with his life he feels quilty he could not save Simone mother life.
    Mr. Chen you learn about him the whole book a little at a time. He is a shen. He is a general lived on the mountain thats not on this plain. Till he got Married and stayed humane to take care and protect Simone. He is part turtle and snake. He is dark Lord. Because he cant go to the mountain he is getting weaker and weaker thinks he has two more years left before he will have to leave this plain and has no idea how long it will be before he is strong enough to come back to earth. He is god of martial arts infact he invented most of them.
    Emma fits right in as the nannie but it is driving her crazy not to know who or what John does. Who are the badguys. Why are they trying to kidnap Simmone. About 6 months after she is fulltime she learns the main secrets. She asks to learn martial arts to help protect Simone and herself. She is falling in love with John but can never be with him without killing herself.
    The story draws you into the world of Chinese gods. They come and visit John and to be trained by him. It feels real and natural how the story unfolds it goes in great detail of life everyday and training of martial arts and demon fighting. It has a lot of love between the characters, family bonds, friends bonds and even romantic love. It has a lot of demon fighting and killing. Rich lifestyle, full of mythology of China.
    Its a nice size book of 528 pages. Their are two more books in this series cant wait to read them. Would recommend this book. I was given this ebook in exchange of honest review.

    Very Good Read!

    Using a variety of Asian cultural and mythological elements in her story, Kylie Chan delivered a well written novel with enough plot elements to easily hold my interest. Surprisingly, my suspension of disbelief was tested not with the supernatural abilities of the gods and demons, but in Emma's incredible progression in the martial arts and her almost "god-like" abilities by the end of this first book. I get the feeling we will learn how her abilities manifested(ex. manipulating chi to destroy demons)in the next book. Finally, I liked the pace of the novel(lots of action in the latter half of the book)and how Emma and John's characters showed growth. I will definitely be reading the rest of the series.

    IF you only read one series this year, read this one

    This book, and the series of which it is a part, was amazing. The world building was riveting, and a great window for the western world to get a taste of Eastern culture, all dressed up in a totally engrossing story that I literally could not put down. (stayed up til past dawn to finish it, didn't even notice the time until I heard the birds start chirping.)
    the descriptions of medern Hong-Kong were so real I feel as if I've seen the city, and were artfully blended with the fantasy storyline to make a unique and very enjoyable tale. This book is also atypical in it's treatment of the characters' personal philosophies and attitudes, while at the same time making those diffences in thought and behavior seem natural and unexceptional. Ms. Chan has done an outstanding job of story telling and I can't wait for the next series to be completed and the third one released.

    Stopped around page 150 and deleted from my nook. Language was getting progressively worse and sexual innuendo was also increasing. It's sad really because the story itself was very good, and very well written. Will not be reading anything else by this author.

    Kind of flat but not ignorable

    I bought this because it was on sale and didn't mind paying the 99 cents. At first, I found the writing to be rather flat and repetitive. At times, Kylie Chan's descriptions of her character's interactions baffled me because they did not explain enough of what had happened. The dialogue frustrated as well because it felt stilted. I got to the point in which I wanted to just get the book finished and move on to a new series.

    As I got further into the book and into the romance and difficulties of the main character and her love interest, I became more drawn in. I still felt irritated from the repetitive nature of the writing, the dialogue, and the vague descriptions, but I did change my mind about moving to a new series and will read the rest of this one.

    Overall, the mythology is great and the characters grow on you, but some small writing issues can distract you from the storyline.

    Needs more action

    I like the plot and the Chinese mythology but I got a bit tired of the Twilight-like romance. What little action there was, was over very fast and had little to no description. The parts with action could have easily been twice as long and lot more intense. I liked it enough I will probably read the second book but if it's like the first I'll probably stop there.

    White Tiger

    This book had a very interesting plot, which kept my interest, in spite of being an extremely silly book (and I don't mean funny). The heroine, Emma, was an unbelievable character in many ways. She asked questions that would have gotten her fired from any real job. The hero, the God, was so unbelievable as to set my teeth on edge. His attraction and then love for Emma, just didn't seem real to me. I felt that a real God would have more sense about what he planned and how he managed things.

    The scenes in Hong Kong were really interesting and that, too, kept me reading. However, I was really annoyed when the book just ended abruptly. I find that this is becoming a trick of authors to get you to buy more books when they can stretch one book into several. Although, I am interested in how things turn out for Emma and Simone, without the God and Leo around, I don't think I'll bother getting the next book in the series. Also, I felt the title "White Tiger" was deceptive as the white tiger was a secondary character in the book. It probably should have been named "Brown Turtle" or "Split Personality"

    finally something not vamp or were

    since i am sure most of y'all are getting as burnt out on "western" themed supernatural creatures it was quite refreshing to finally find something with an "eastern" theme. after reading this first book i immediately went and ordered the second and am eagerly awaiting the third which will be arriving next month.

    Loved this trilogy. I'm only sad that the next trilogy in the series isn't available in the US yet. It's available in Austrailia and you can order in online but it just needs to be released here. I can't wait to see how the story continues. :)
