Publisher Description

The stunning sequel to Daughter of the Moon Goddess delves deeper into beloved Chinese mythology, concluding the epic story of Xingyin—the daughter of Chang’e and the mortal archer, Houyi—as she battles a grave new threat to the realm, in this powerful tale of love, sacrifice, and hope. 

After winning her mother’s freedom from the Celestial Emperor, Xingyin thrives in the enchanting tranquility of her home. But her fragile peace is threatened by the discovery of a strange magic on the moon and the unsettling changes in the Celestial Kingdom as the emperor tightens his grip on power. While Xingyin is determined to keep clear of the rising danger, the discovery of a shocking truth spurs her into a perilous confrontation.

Forced to flee her home once more, Xingyin and her companions venture to unexplored lands of the Immortal Realm, encountering legendary creatures and shrewd monarchs, beloved friends and bitter adversaries. With alliances shifting quicker than the tides, Xingyin has to overcome past grudges and enmities to forge a new path forward, seeking aid where she never imagined she would. As an unspeakable terror sweeps across the realm, Xingyin must uncover the truth of her heart and claw her way through devastation—to rise against this evil before it destroys everything she holds dear, and the worlds she has grown to love . . . even if doing so demands the greatest price of all.

Loudly Crying Face“Im sooooo over the love triangle in this novel. Loved the ending of the romance plot but Xingyin attitude about her feelings, i was just over it and keep rolling my eyes at the continuous of the same thought over and over again. Has the first book i loved the world building but i wished that the author would have slowed down, to much was happening with little explanation.”

Red Angry Face“Ahhh!! This book made me feel something I didn’t want to feel! Yes it was beautifully written but it also gave me a headache. I loved the action magic and plot but I hated the love triangle. The love triangle really bothered me and was out stretched. At this point I wanted her to be single. But overall a good series.”

Anxious Face with sweat“The author really stepped up their game on the pacing of this book. The vast adventures had much better pacing than before. There were a few “isn't this a coincidence" situations that could be a bit of an eye-roll for fantasy snobs like me, but they were dismissible in my opinion. I finished this audio book in 2 days, right after listening to the first in 3 days. So that alone speaks to the captivating descriptive story this author produced. Romance frustrated me at the end, didn’t feel complete”
