M.H. Boroson ¸ 4 review

Could burn Chinatown to the groundWith a rich and inventive historical setting nonstop martial arts action authentic Chinese magic and bizarre monsters from Asian folklore The Girl with Ghost Eyes is also the poignant story of a young immigrant searching to find her place beside the long shadow of a demanding father and the stigma of widowhood In a Chinatown caught between tradition and modernity one woman may be the key to holding everything togethe Characters like Li Lin do not come around every day and rarely are they part of a non anglo culture She is an exceptional protagonist in a novel full of interesting and exciting characters As much as I like her as a character I like that the author gave her plenty of opportunities to fail This is not a story where things go smoothly and plans are carried out with ease And so we see our protagonist fail when we expect a victory and succeed when we thought all hope was lost I recommend this book to young adults and adults alike I cannot wait for the next one
