Critic reviews

"Along with some brilliantly crafted secondary characters, and the storyline of the mystery of the Jade Lioness, Christina Courtenay has delivered a fantastic addition to the Kumashiro Saga which is definitely not to be missed." ( Old Victorian Quill)

Predictable

A fairly predictable love story but I still enjoyed it. It will cheer you up if you are feeling down.
