Book Synopsis

Jae Hwa Lee has destroyed Haemosu, the dangerous demi-god that held her ancestors captive, and now she’s ready to forget about immortals and move on with her life. Then the god of darkness, Kud, sends an assassin to kill her. Jae escapes with the knowledge that Kud is seeking the lost White Tiger Orb, and joins the Guardians of Shinshi to seek out the orb before Kud can find it.

But Kud is stronger and more devious than Haemosu ever was. Jae is soon painfully reminded that by making an enemy of Kud, she has placed her closest friends in danger, and must decide how much she can bear to sacrifice to defeat one of the most powerful immortals in all of Korea.





Why I'm waiting on this one!!

Although I have yet to read the first
book in this series, I'm excited
about this one!
The whole series deals with mythology,
and in Korea, too, which
should be totally fascinating, since
I'm not at all familiar with
that country's legends.
As soon as this novel is released,
I'm buying both books,
so I can read them back to back!






What do you think of my choice?

    1. Hi, Teresa!

      Oh, this is definitely very different! It's the second book in a series, and the first one is titled "Gilded". I think you'll really enjoy it. And there's some romance in it, too, I think.

      Thanks so much for commenting back!! : )

  4. I saw this book somewhere... was it up on Netgalley? I think it might have been. Either way it has a striking cover and I know nothing about Korean mythology so that is something I would like to know more about. Looks like good pick. Fingers crossed.

    1. Hey, Heidi!

      Yes, this is DEFINITELY a striking cover!! I can't wait to own it! The cover of the first one in this series, "Gilded", is also very beautiful.

      I don't know anything about Korean mythology, either, so I'm really anxious to learn more, too!

      BTW, the first book got a LOT of rave reviews on Amazon, so that sure says a lot!!

      Here's the link to "Gilded", the first book:
