      I received a free copy from the author in exchange for an honest review.Read more on ExtaordinaryreadsMystery, mayhem and a secret assassin, this book has it all, and in spades. The writing style is reminiscent of the fairy tale fables of my youth, and I think this book will appeal, primarily, to a young audience. Hong, is a servant girl to a wealth Chinese family, whose youngest son is in love with her. However, Hong, is far more interested in learning proficiency in martial art, and music than [...]

      I love this book! I'm glad that this was one of the books I’ve garnered from a giveaway.Just reading its first paragraph piqued my interest and prodded me to continue. I like it so much because it is fast-paced, poignantly written, and the characters are well-formed.One thing that I would like to see more, though, is a heightened pace of drama and action during the main character's fights to make me feel those particular scenes more. Other than that, I really like the book and I look forward t [...]

      Enjoyable light read. Hong is a servant girl in historical china, with a double life as an apprentice assassin almost ready to graduate to journeyman. Throw in a hapless would-be lover (her master's third son), soon accused of a murder he didn't commit, and Hong is left to find out who the real murderer wasI enjoyed reading this book, but it was a bit simplistic, so don't think too hard about it. Some more depth would have been good - the characters, the setting (beyond 'generic historical China [...]

      The writing was amateurish at best. She has a habit of leaving words out or using the wrong word; it was distracting to have to reread the sentence inserting the correct word. The story itself was interesting, but vague. Like other readers, I had no sense of place other than "ancient China". The mystery of the Lost Manual was barely touched as were the romance between Hong & Fang and the story of Pai & Wen-Jun. Lots of words, but little substance. It also bothered me that during the "tri [...]

We’re soon introduced to Hong, a quietly ende [...]

      4.75 StarsA short and fast-paced historical adventure mystery! This book introduces some wonderful and wacky characters, though my favorite has to be the MC's love interest Fang. Imagine a spy/assassin chick (I picture Lucy Liu) in ancient China with a touch of Sherlock sleuthing skills. There's going to be a sequel too (cannot wait). This work is a quick and enjoyable read. Recommended for YA and adults, especially those who like Asian cozy mysteries Member Giveaways

      I like the author's writing style, trying to find a book to read with my 13 year old. Wasn't looking to start a new series so wish I had realized this was the first in a new series. Not ready to cover background subjects like a harem with my 13 year old also.

    • Sarah says:

      I really liked it. It needs a sequel soon to wrap up the story though. I look forward to it.

      This was a short and fast paced book. It took me under a day to read the book. I really found myself to enjoy this book. I would highly recommend.
