GIVEAWAY: Descendant of the Crane by Joan He // chinese game of thrones

Welcome back, booklings! Gather round our fairy ring of maitake mushrooms -- it's time for a brand new giveaway!

Today, we're giving away a preorder of DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE by Joan He, a Chinese-inspired fantasy about the young princess Hesina who must navigate the Imperial Court and commit treason to seek justice for her murdered father.

Plus, the winner will receive a set of exclusive character cards! ngl I'm super jealous of whoever wins.

I'm so lucky that I've already read this book and I can tell you it absolutely lives up to the Game of Thrones comp! If you're looking for a princess/emperor who has real power, a thrilling new take on court politics, a truly unique YA fantasy -- you do NOT want to miss out on this giveaway!

This giveaway is now closed. However, great news — join my latest giveaway here, for another fantastic prize!

Once you've entered, you'll receive an email with details on how to redeem bonus entries—so go and check it now! Because you entered, right? riiiiiight?

Blurb (buy links here):
Princess Hesina of Yan has never embraced the responsibilities of the crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she suddenly inherits an unstable kingdom. Determined to find the killer, Hesina seeks the wisdom of a soothsayer—a treason punishable by death ever since Yan outlawed magic centuries ago.

Using the information illicitly provided by the sooth, and uncertain if she can trust even her family, Hesina turns to Akira—a brilliant, alluring investigator...and a convicted criminal with secrets of his own. With the future of her kingdom at stake, can Hesina find justice for her father? Or will the cost be too high?

A Chinese fantasy perfect for fans of Game of Thrones.
Please note that Joan is sponsoring this preorder, but I reached out to her after already deciding to feature DESCENDANT OF THE CRANE because I'm just that excited for this book!

This giveaway will run until March 23rd, at which point I shall select a winner and have a new giveaway for everyone else. Yay!

This prize will be shipped by The Book Depository or Wordery. If a substitute shipping method cannot be found, we may send you another substitute prize instead.
