ARC Review – Descendant of the Crane

What do you think of the new headers? I am trying them out. I think the wording needs to get a bit bigger and maybe something else. I will keep working on it. But I want to start getting more professional. Not with my words, those will still be blunt, but with my aesthetic. Let me know what you think they are missing.


Today I want to take a moment to look at a book that is destorying the hearts of the street team. Of course I mean:

Descendant of the Crane

Tyrants cut out hearts. Rulers sacrifice their own

Princess Hesina of Yan has always been eager to shirk the responsibilities of the crown, but when her beloved father is murdered, she’s thrust into power, suddenly the queen of an unstable kingdom. Determined to find her father’s killer, Hesina does something desperate: she engages the aid of a soothsayer—a treasonous act, punishable by death… because in Yan, magic was outlawed 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 and alluring investigator who’s also 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?

This book was not meant to be an easy fluffy read. This book is going to bring out ferocity, anger, pain, and sadness. It is wonderfully written and beautifully poetic. Each character has a back story that unfolds in ways you aren’t expecting. You root for one side then switch as you find out more and more.
While I began with a dislike of the main character I think that was supposed to happen? As the book progresses she got less naive.
Perfect for fans of fantasy, retribution, and magic. But be forewarned that this book will destroy you with each page and require some serious reflection before you can move on.


Our lovely friend Vicky has even created a survivor badge for those of us who have read it.  I cannot wait for everyone else to read this so I can talk about it more. omZ78mG.png
