    Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon, which is maybe the best book title ever, is another powerhouse from Mary Fan, one of the best YA authors out there today. This book's got romance, vivid descriptions, an amazing heroine, and some totally badass action sequences you won't soon forget. A gr...

    I think I will forever be in love with Asian fantasy okay Maybe it's because there is just SO MUCH complicated history to pull inspiration from. Maybe it's because katanas always gave me heart-eyes as a wee child. Maybe it's because I first saw Mulan and thought "finally a girl ...

    This book just wasn't for me. Following are three reasons why: 1. There was too much info dumping through conversation, which felt unnatural and too much like telling. I would have preferred this information be given organically through the characters thoughts, actions, and observa...

    I very much enjoyed reading Stronger than a Bronze Dragon. This book is packed with action, a fierce heroine, and a very compelling story. I really loved the two main characters, Anlei and Tai. Anlei was such a treasure to read about; she's loyal to her family and village almost to ...

    So this is the first Mary Fan book I've read. I've come across some reviews of her other books. I now know she is an author to look out for though. This was just, WOW! The book synopsis and cover sucked me in right away, I just I knew I just had to read it and that I would love it. ...

    4.5 stars This is a story about Anlei, an acrobat warrior who refused to follow the usual path of girls in her time, but is forced to marry a powerful viceroy in order to save her village. This book has a slow start but I appreciated it because it provided the backstory which mad...

    When I came across this book on Netgalley the cover immediately drew my attention. A Dragon and the typography of the yellow title. I like. Of course the title mentioning a dragon helped. There are dragons in here, just not quite the way you?d think. That didn?t stop me from enjoyi...
