About this deal

Aunque la trama avanza a un paso lento sin resultar tedioso, te deja con esa sensación de querer saber mas mientras vas pasando las páginas, el desarrollo de la historia está muy bien ejecutado y hay un giro en la historia que sinceramente no lo veía venir.

Como lectora, sólo aprendí que la sangre de quienes blandían magia prohibida se encendía en llamas cuando salía a la superficie. Reeling from the death of a beloved father, the teen regent Hessina is hell bent on finding the person or persons who may be responsible.in a perfect world, where I would have been able to get a 3 book contract from the get-go, I envisioned book 2 following a new character X Sanjing, and book 3 following a new character X Caiyan, all to complete the arc that's much bigger than Hesina's personal story (one of finding the truth of who killed her dad, and thereby also finding the truth of herself and dismantling the lies she grew up on). It also felt as if these characters were held at an arm’s length because of the prose itself—which others have seemed to enjoy, but didn’t flow well and felt unnatural to me. But doing so would then make me uncomfortable, and after sitting down with myself to examine why, I realized it goes against what I believe is the magic of reading—and of art in general. The plot twists are indeed as good as everyone says, though some of them just didn’t hit as hard as I wanted them to, because at that point I had really stopped caring what was going on. this story is overwhelmingly heavy in court politics and war, so much so that my interest began to fade after a while.

The Descendant of the Crane was an intricate Chinese inspired fantasy full of treachery and about a relentless hunt for the truth. if anything, it should be the other way around - magic as the main focus with the politics and war plots as support. The art of the story would have trumped any contractual obligations, and I hope you’ll understand that I selfishly chose to be the “artist” for my debut.The soothsayer cannot tell her the culprit, but she can point her in the direction of someone who will help her find out. That's a really long story that I legally cannot disclose here, but by the end of it, I'd managed to win back the rights to DOTC, and it essentially went out of print in the US.

For example, they can break a vase by invoking its future state – at some point in time, that vase will be broken, but they moved that moment to now. It seems I haven't read the same book as everyone else, but I'm still glad some people are enjoying this. Sometimes in books like these you KNOW things aren’t what they seem, and you’re smart enough to go into reading it with some amount of suspicion towards every character in the book.

There is something a bit off by all these rulers and military leaders being around 16 or 17 years old.

In this shimmering Chinese-inspired fantasy, debut author Joan He introduces a determined and vulnerable young heroine struggling to do right in a world brimming with deception. Perhaps it was a painting and each word a brushstroke, a vibrant dab of colour across the paper; or perhaps it was a tapestry, the words woven into a mosaic of mesmerising patterns—I'd like to continue waxing poetic, but what point would there be in that? It was extremely smart and I would like to read more fantasy mystery books if there is such a thing! It's a Chinese-inspired fantasy/saga of a princess turning into a queen and trying to navigate court intrigue and family politics. Hesina was the protagonist, a young woman convinced that her father, the king, was murdered despite the fact that everyone else believed it to be a natural death.Durante todo el libro sentí que no conocía a ningún personaje y que su personalidad era tan interesante como la de una servilleta, no había profundidad de ninguna clase y era desesperante. Plus a twist taken straight from ToG And holy SHIT how could I nearly forget all of the mentions and Akira and his ~rod~. This cover combined with the Chinese-inspired A Game of Thrones comparison has me anticipating great things from this one. Now, I'm lucky enough to say that my current pub, at the time of writing this, will be re-releasing DOTC as a paperback come September 27, 2022.
