Why this book?
I picked this book because its world building and mythos swept me away into a world unlike any I’d visited before. The magic and power jade granted to the green bones was fascinating. Likewise, when trying to use jade, those who were not green bones suffered great peril. I fell in love with the main character’s struggle to maintain loyalty to her family and still live her own life. The nail-biting climax had me fearing the outcome.
Why should I read it?
