Hey People even though I have exams going on but I did a cheat day and read the Netgalley ARC which was superb .Though I feel Guilty now//SO MEEE!!.The book comes out in April !!

Plot :Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, dreaming of an unremarkable life. But when her beloved father is found dead, she’s thrust into power, suddenly the queen of a surprisingly unstable kingdom. What’s more, Hesina believes that her father was murdered—and that the killer is someone close to her.Hesina’s court is packed full of dissemblers and deceivers eager to use the king’s death for political gain, each as plausibly guilty as the next. Her advisers would like her to blame the neighboring kingdom of Kendi’a, whose ruler has been mustering for war. Determined to find her father’s actual killer, Hesina does something desperate: she enlists the aid of a soothsayer—a treasonous act, punishable by death, since magic was outlawed centuries ago.

Descendants of the Crane , Well I was just a little apprehensive about reading this book. Lately I have become very judgmental about reading  the fantasy books maybe because they follow the similar storyline at times  . But I was pleasantly and mildly surprise about reading this Game of thrones inspired book. Princess Hesina does everything in her power to unravel her father’s death , even becomes a queen to do that. What happens is the game of deception ,lies,threats and betrayals.

This book really gave me trust issues . I mean by the end of the book , it was really hard to decide who was not lying . This is not for the faint hearts as there is too much betrayal ,lies and trust issues. But ever you think of giving up on the book. Especially the second half of the book was so freaking good.  And good luck putting it down with the last 20% or so.

If you want to understand a person, peer at his heart through the window of his prejudices and assumptions.

A great diverse Young Adult Fantasy with setting at a Chinese Palace . Intangled with deceptive characters , what more could I ask For !! The writing is so lucid and beautiful , hats off to Joan He. I was immediately transferred to the world and I suddenly forget about the Chinese aspects of the book and suddenly drawn towards the book . A perfect Young Adult fantasy with a super awesome plot , great characters and amazing setting.

The book comes out on 4 April 2019 .Joan He wrote a diverse Young Adult Fantasy and deserves all the love.Happy Reading!! You can add the book on Goodreads

Have you read the book ?? Are you planning to read the book? Lets chat in the comments !!

  2. Wow, the cover of this book is gorgeous! I love how diverse it is, and from what I see, this book is awfully twisty and perhaps make one mindblown. I’d love to check this out some time soon (I’m drawn by the diversity and the Chinese aspects). Great review, Priyasha! (also you should probably get back to your exams)

    1. Since I have trouble spelling your name I am going to use in goals from now JX.
      Firstly I missed your comment on this particular post because you once told me that you are Chinese , maybe that’s y I had to read this book <D . Secondly this exam stress is killing me . I have my Economics Exam on Wednesday and I am really studying from morning to night… Just few more days .. Last paper is on 4th April and I can't wait to get over with this…
