Hand on heart this is truly beautiful, a delightful mix of ancient myth and modern storytelling creates a spellbinding tale. When Xingyin has to leave her mother and flee her home, she finds herself alone in the Celestial Kingdom attempting to master archery and magic. From the very first page I was held, captivated by the words and story. This is Sue Lynn Tan’s debut fantasy, the first in a duology, and she is most definitely an author I will be keeping an eye out for. She writes with a lyrical, otherworldly energy, yet I immediately felt comfortable and at home in this story. The characters feel touchable and relatable, they also hold a legendary magic through their very being which adds a fascinating vitality. The spirit, the magic, it feels grounded, but oh how it sparkles with intensity! The core of strength and power that runs through the pages, lies in the vulnerabilities that are as much a part of the characters as their life force. I was left feeling fully satisfied and rewarded by this debut, and yet excited and longing for the next. Daughter of the Moon Goddess glows with intoxicating energy and heartfelt emotion. It has been chosen as both a LoveReading Star Book, and Liz Pick of the Month, it’s just gorgeous!
