  • Wonderful!

    Short but perfectly formed! Told as a series of stories this is a truly beautiful novella. I can't wait to see what Vo writes next.

    Thanks for your feedback!

    What a delight to read this tale of empresses and court intrigues. The characters are engaging. I can't wait for the next installments.

  • A wonderful tale

    This novella filled me with sadness and grief, love and longing, wonder and amazement. Thoroughly enjoyed it and will now go looking for Vo's other books.

  • Incredible storytelling

    I feel like I'm always saying it, but this right here, is why I love novellas so much. In 100 pages (sometimes a little more) I find myself running the gambit of emotions. Anger, hurt, joy, sorrow. This book made me feel them all and so much more, and I loved every moment. These characters (Chih, Almost Brilliant, Rabbit and the Empress) will stay with me for years to come, and I'm so happy for that. I cannot wait to read anything and everything by Nghi Vo in the future (and the present as I dive directly into When the Tiger Came Down the Mountain)!

    Thanks for your feedback!
