Finally! A fantasy not just "based" on Asian mythology, but one which features Asian characters. No fail happening here.

Okay, I admit it, her wise and brave companion, the turtle M'lan just kept reminding me of Gamera. Be that as it may, I want one!

I liked this story. Its an all ages tale that captures the spirit of Chinese mythology well. At first I wasn't sure I liked Amira because she was so bratty but her eagerness and playfulness reminded me of the monkey king. She really learned to care for others towards the end. The ending wrapped up a bit fast and neat but its ok since it gives off the feeling of a tale. I highly recommend this to those who love Chinese mythology and Asian fairytales.
