Revenge, intrigue, and unexpected magic live at the heart of this stunning debut. In an Asian-inspired fantasy world, rebellion foments against the mysterious and harsh Emperor who demands a literal part of every citizen to keep them safe from a nebulous threat. One young woman must seek out the secrets to her father’s magic, but the answers are much darker than she can imagine. Rich and truly surprising, this book stayed with me long after I put it down. —Ivy
