The Ghost Dragon’s Daughter is incredible. The story immediately pulls you into a world so rich you can taste it. Everyghost dragons daughter page is packed with worldbuilding, atmosphere, and personality. Not a word is wasted.

And the world is awesome. If I’m not mistaken, it is Chinese-inspired, and weaves an urban city and a magical world together into something so very, very fun to read. Math-based magic. Girls creating a magical robotic translation machine. The struggles of modern urban life (debt, mass transit, scraping by ’til payday) in a magical world where demons patrol the streets at night and every person has a spiritual companion animal that they can talk to in their thoughts.

And did I mention the majority of the characters in it are queer?

Stories I Loved – October 2015

I love story in whatever medium it’s told in. I love books,…

I love story in whatever medium it’s told in. I love books, movies, webcomics, video games, tv shows, board games, etc. I thought I would round up and share some of my favorite stories that I loved this month!

Book – The Spymaster’s Lady by Joanna Bourne – Historical M/F Romance (Goodreads | Amazon)

The final book in one of my favorite series, The Pink Carnation books, came out recently, and I went into a spymasters ladysad mopefest about how there would never be another one. I began asking everyone I knew for a book to fill the void in my heart, and this was recommended to me. It is nothing like the Pink Carnation books, except for its time period and that it’s a romantic spy novel. The tone, the writing, the characters – it’s much different.

The writing is rich and beautiful, with a sort of odd lilt to it that makes it sound like the entire book was written in a French accent. The characters have depth and nuance to them, and the humor in it is subtle and clever. It’s also got a great plot – spies lying to each other and playing games within games as they try to outsmart each other. What a perfect setting for falling in love! 😉
