Mulan meets Song of Achilles in a dramatic struggle with greatness, war, and gender.

This is the best fantasy book I have read in a long time, and I cannot wait for the sequel! The lyrical writing draws you into the world. The main character is fascinating and leaves you torn between questioning her choices and wanting her to succeed.  Set in China during the fall of the Yuan Dynasty, this is perfect for anyone who enjoys historical fantasy and wants something outside of medieval Europe.
