4.0 out of 5 stars sweeps you away!
Reviewed in the United States on April 24, 2022
Daughter of the Moon Goddess is a beautifully written coming of age story about a daughter's love for her mother and her quest to free her mother from imprisonment. Reading this story brought back memories of me sitting on my grandmother's lap listening to her tell me Korean folktales.

The writing is absolutely captivating and sweeps you away! The prose is both flowery and thorny! It was just magical, mystical, romantic, intense and action packed! Like slow down, let me catch my breath, please. Its also filled with magic, talking dragons and who needs horses when you can ride on clouds! Xingyin is young, flawed, and reckless. She experiences a lot of firsts here, but she also knows how to humble herself and learn from her mistakes. The love triangle definitely pulled at my heartstrings and their jealous fits had me giggling. Captain Wenzhi has that bad boy appeal that I couldn't resist, and Prince Liwei is an absolute cinnamon roll. *insert both is good gif*

There was quite a bit of "telling vs showing." Things like chemistry/tension between characters, training, and battles that are mentioned that contributed to her growth, I wished I got to see it happen. But overall, I LOVED this book, it swept me away and I was clutching this book so tightly near the end, I can't wait for the final book in the duology!

What to expect:
• first in a duology
• heroine on a quest to free her mom
• friends to lovers
• dragons!
• riding on clouds!
• hair pins!
• honor & duty
• friendships
• love triangle & jealousy
• intrigue & danger & betrayal
• Chinese mythology & retelling
• jam packed & adventure filled
• and if you like Chinese or Korean fantasy dramas
• 🌶 sweet kisses
