" In the old days, foxes had played tricks like changing into beautiful humans
to lure lonely travelers close so they could suck out their lives."
This book is about a 13 year old girl named Min, who is on a mission to rescue her brother, Jun. Jun is accused of leaving his station and going after the Dragon Pearl. The Dragon Pearl
is an ancient artifact that is known as a powerful weapon that can destroy the planet. This book was ok. I didn't really like Min as a character and I felt like she was disrespectful, but I grew to like her. The story is pretty good and the journey Min takes
is epic. I didn't like Captain Hwan's character. His motives were unclear and It seemed like he was a good guy and then he was suddenly a bad guy. I just didn't get it. I did like learning about the supernatual creatures and the myths surrounding them. There
is some diversity in the book. The character Heimdal uses they/them as pronouns. Overall: this book was pretty good but I wanted more.
