Daughter of the Moon Goddess – Review

Daughter of the Moon Goddess (The Celestial Kingdom Duology, #1)Daughter of the Moon Goddess by Sue Lynn Tan
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

What a lovely book. From the beautiful cover to the themes and language of the story everything was beautiful. I’m a huge fan of C-Dramas and Chinese mythology so I dove in with enthusiasm. I was not disappointed. I must say that the extremely detailed description of the settings–however beautifully done–threw me off the story a bit (maybe because in my head I am already pretty familiar with the traditional Chinese historical fantasy settings and the description was just overkill) especially in the first half of the book, but everything else was perfect. And what a surprise–more like shock–about the huge plot twist toward the end. Love that kind of surprise and I so didn’t see it coming.
I have already pre-ordered the sequel so it’s safe to say this was a definite winner for me. Congrats, Ms. Tan!
