    excellent read

    This book is pitch as Mulan Retelling but I think some parts feel like reading Beauty and The Beast, Rapunzel and Aladdin retelling too 😍😍 Basically reading this book is like reading Disney story! I can confirm that this book is live up to hype and expectation. So page turner and each chapter ending leave me wanting more. I managed to finish in one sitting. This charming novel is about Maia who dreamed to be the best emperor’s tailor. She is likeable and strong heroine. She has strong morale ground. Her story and journey made me you want to root for her. While I disagree with some Maia’s behavior, Elizabeth explains her circumstances nicely and made me understand why she act like that. Then I came to realize that she is still young. I probably will act like her when I was at her age. I mean when we are young, there are lots of things that we has to learn. My other favorite character is Edan. His witty remark and attitude remind me of Thorne from The Lunar Chronicles 😍😍 I totally swoon over him. And did you know Edan means Crazy in bahasa? I laugh out loud when read his name. Eventough his name means something else in the book. I think the Indonesia meaning fits Edan’s behavior/personality too. This novel is an excellent read, I absolutely loved it. Beautiful cover and beautiful story! 5 star from me! I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own. Thank you @CaffeineTours Netgalley and Penguin Random House for giving me the chance to read and review this book early.

    A beautiful story

    What a fantastic read, the story is completely enthralling and I'm going to be anxiously awaiting the sequel. As a sewist the book really called to me, and luckily it delivered everything I had hoped it would be. A strong female character in a time when females are dismissed as lesser, a beautiful mixture of multiple fairy tales to complete an all new and alluring story. I highly recommend to grab this novel if you Crave adventure, magic, and some sweet romance.

    Amazed

    Wow. This was great. It had me reading for two days straight. The author's writing style was so refined that each chapter was like a neverending chorus. Gave it 5 stars simply because the storyline was not only Project Runway and Mulan; once through those retellings, the story became uniquely Elizabeth Lim's and that was what kept me reading. Big thumbs up :)

    Loved the adventure and the sass!

    Super fun fast paced read! The main character’s voice was well developed and I really did love the sassy love interest. Great world building and beautiful imagery.
