Best-selling author Rick Riordan presents Yoon Ha Lee's companion to the best-selling and award-winning DRAGON PEARL, another space opera inspired by Korean mythology, this time told from the point of view of a nonbinary tiger spirit.

"A zesty mix of Korean folklore, magic, and science fiction that will leave you longing for more adventures in the Thousand Worlds!"--Rick Riordan, intro to DRAGON PEARL

"With crisp dialogue, a winning protagonist and a propulsive plot, this tale is enormously entertaining."--New York Times Book Review of DRAGON PEARL

Sebin, a young tiger spirit from the Juhwang Clan, wants nothing more than to join the Thousand World Space Forces and, like their Uncle Hwan, captain a battle cruiser someday. But when Sebin's acceptance letter finally arrives, it's accompanied by the shocking news that Hwan has been declared a traitor. Apparently the captain abandoned his duty to steal a magical artifact, the Dragon Pearl, and his whereabouts are still unknown. Sebin hopes to help clear their hero's name and restore honor to the clan.

Nothing goes according to plan, however. As soon as Sebin arrives for orientation, they are met by a special investigator named Yi and Yi's assistant, a girl named Min. Yi informs Sebin that they must immediately report to the ship Haetae and await further instructions. Sebin finds this highly unusual, but soon all protocol is forgotten when there's an explosion on the ship, the crew is knocked out, and the communication system goes down. It's up to Sebin, three other cadets, and Yi and Min to determine who is sabotaging the battle cruiser. When Sebin is suddenly accused of collaborating with the enemy, the cadet realizes that Min is the most dangerous foe of all...

Yoon Ha Lee brilliantly turns the tables on DRAGON PEARL in another unputdownable sci-fi adventure about what honor really means.

Grab book 1, DRAGON PEARL NOW!



To say this story was out of this world sounds totally cliché...
...and yet...
...that's the BEST way to describe it!

Just as in the previous book, Dragon Pearl, we find ourselves amongst the Thousand Worlds, seeking adventure, duty, and honor, but what we uncover is so much more than we could have imagined.  Sebin has some mighty big paw prints to fill once he enters his cadet training...unfortunately doe to recent  events, those he is stepping behind and into are tainted.  It seems his Uncle Hwan, Captain and beloved member of the Juhwang Clan, is sought for treason, among other things, and has yet to be brought to justice.  As things begin, it seems that Sebin worried needlessly about those deeds being held against him, but that's not to say that the tides can't turn at the speed of light.  He has a funny feeling, and more often than not...those shouldn't be ignored.  When an unexpected opportunity arises, followed by an unexpected encounter, it cements certain things that we know to be true...

First...the Space Forces really have no idea what they are dealing with, but they're about the find out.
Second...the family we choose is just as important, if not more so, than the one we are born into. should never underestimate the little guy, nor base a known truth on preconceived prejudices.

Space is about to get a whole lot more interesting, AND dangerous, but if Sebin holds true to himself, and applies his training for the greater good...the Thousand Worlds may just "live" to see another day.

So that's the story, and as for the writing, it really put you right there on the spacecraft with Sebin and his friends.  I appreciated the diversity in both the characters and their family histories.  I enjoyed meeting up with Min once again, even if it wasn't initially the best of circumstances.  I loved the hard choices the characters were faced with, the dilemmas they had to sort out between obligations and morals, and the mythology aspect of the story; it gave the book a greater depth than at first could be perceived.  Overall, it was a great addition to the series, and I can't wait for more! (There will be more...right?)
