SummaryAustralian bestseller Kylie Chan returns with a new, fast-paced adventure of magic, martial arts, and romance.

I love the incorporation of the turtle because of the legend in the book. The first page even has a little quote about the turtle. It holds a lot of symbolism. I'm not sure what the Chinese characters are. If anyone knows feel free to comment the translation.
I haven't read the first book so I'm going in blind here. This is also the first book by Kylie Chan I have ever read.
I'm glad I read this book. It was a struggle at first because I was so lost. After reading this story I'm about to purchase the rest of the series and other Kylie Chan books and start from the beginning. The legend and story behind the characters is so enticing and vivid. I'll probably dream that I'm part of the series. I get pretty picky about novels that use unequal amounts of romance with action, but this story was perfect. The character development is spot on. I really felt like I was Emma at times. In the beginning John makes a reference to Emma before she gets all bad ass. I can't wait to start from the beginning and find out how she was before. I believe my favorite part of the book is the symbolism. The different animals or creatures all mean something. There should be a quiz about what our true forms would be. Kylie Chan added a very nice glossary to the end so we could differentiate people and terms. Thank goodness otherwise I would have been more lost. I had to read some pages twice to understand who is who and what is what.
I recommend this book for readers who have read the first book. This was very hard for me to get into until I reached the middle. I do, however recommend this series to anyone who enjoys a good, legendary, romantic, action packed tale of bad assery.
My Final Thought-
Time to read every book by Kylie Chan.
