Irena BookDustMagic | 1420 comments For as long as Fei can remember, there has been no sound in her village, where rocky terrain and frequent avalanches prevent residents from self-sustaining. Fei and her people are at the mercy of a zipline that carries food up the treacherous cliffs from Beiguo, a mysterious faraway kingdom.

When villagers begin to lose their sight, deliveries from the zipline shrink and many go hungry. Fei’s home, the people she loves, and her entire existence is plunged into crisis, under threat of darkness and starvation.

But soon Fei is awoken in the night by a searing noise, and sound becomes her weapon.

Richelle Mead takes readers on a triumphant journey from the peak of Fei’s jagged mountain village to the valley of Beiugo, where a startling truth and an unlikely romance will change her life forever...

♛Vanessa♛ Fangirl Faction (fangirlfaction) | 3133 comments I agree with you both that the book was fairly boring. Things really went by so slowly. I was hoping that things would speed up and things would get good, but they didn't...at least for me. Victoria, I also agree with you about the fantasy aspect. This was barely a fantasy book in my opinion. I felt like I was reading a historical fiction book until the last few chapters. I was expecting to me immersed in a fabulous fantasy story that engulfed me with Chinese mythology, but I didn't get that sadly. The one thing that I did like was the relationship between Fei and Li Wei. There was hardly any romance and that irked me a bit, but they clearly had a deep friendship that blossomed into more. I wish that Mead would have explored it more in the book.


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) | 4264 comments I think I'm going to start this now :-)


Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) | 4264 comments This definitely has a dystopian feel to it, I'm not getting fantasy at all. So far so good, very interesting.

Berit Talks Books (berittalksbooks) | 4264 comments Finished, it was quick, but not exactly an exciting read to be completely honest

Agreed. It was lacking a lot of detail and there was NO Chinese folklore .. as someone who has been to China I feel like this story could have easily taken place on the side of any mountain in a second or third world country ... heck, even up real high atop a remote mountain in a first world country! LOL. Very disappointing.

I agree, although I did find the book to be a quick read... I wanted more world building SO desperately. I would even trade in more character building as some of you have complained about the lack of, for more world building. Chinese folklore has so much potential for beauty!! This is my first Rachel Meade book so I can't compare it to her other work.
