I read "Hunting Monsters" when it was released and found the world and the characters so intriguing, so I was thrilled to read "Fighting Demons"--finally--and revisit this world. This time, Huang takes the Chinese tale of the "Legend of the White Snake" and uses it as the backdrop to a tale of cultural clashes (which were beautifully done and utterly illustrative of the differences between a Western raised child and an Asian raised child) and examining when one's obligations and forgiveness to family ends and where a person begins.The prose and language is well written, fairy tale and fantasy-like without being ponderous.
