This book is impressive and gives a feeling of having watched a big-budget period movie. It brings out the impression of a majestic palace, the sounds, the prisons, culture so well. As a reader and author of self-help books, fiction books have not been my interest. The detailing, narration, and articulation made me feel as if I was living in China during the period.

From the opening scene where the Empress delivers not one but two royal Princes to the beginning of the Ming Dynasty only to have the second one taken to be put to death because it was a bad omen, we are given glimpses of a different culture through the eyes of this talented author. She has a knack for providing details and vivid descriptions of days long past. She brings history to life like no one else

A old story re-worked. I have always enjoyed Amanda Roberts' books. She manages to bring an authenticity to the plot and paints a vivid picture with her writing. Familiar yet different, the story of pain, anger, greed and jealousy told in a different time, in a different place and yet resounds with the same intensity that is suffered in this day and age.

A great read, totally enjoyed.

A riveting story, full of palace intrigue, love and betrayal. Also a sort of homage to Alexandre Dumas, this tale is bittersweet from start to finish. I couldn’t put it down. Highly recommended.
