    5 stars

    This book has ruined me.

    The standards for YA fantasy just shot up to the moon after this book. Because this was extraordinarily heart-wrenching as well as engaging and absorbing and completely amazing.

    I am wrecked. This book was glorious.

    The first sign that this was just an amazing read was that I devoured the whole thing in one day. This is a 400+ page book and I just blew through the ARC s

    Gah this book made me cry. I loved the setting and characters soooo much! I honestly am not knowledgeable about the history (during -13th century and having to do with Mongol Empire) but this book led me to google. Plus, I really enjoyed reading the author’s notes!

And it is more YA Fantasy than Historical Fiction since there are some more fantastical elements and this isn’t supposed to be an accurate retelling of history, historical figures, or

    Wow. I am stunned. This was a masterpiece, beautifully written with lots of emotion and wonderfully constructed. The title and the cover...looking at it now, I have CHILLS. This brought out all kinds of emotion in me. I loved the world building and the character arcs. I really felt like I was in the Mongolia Empire. But at the same time, the author modernized it a bit with speech patterns and letting us into this brave young girl's head. Made it such a quick read. This had a very big "Mulan" fee ...more
