Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

This week I’m over at the Skiffy and Fanty Show with a review of Descendant of the Crane by Joan He. This is a Chinese-inspired YA fantasy novel about politics, leadership and sacrifice. It digs into some meaty themes but I felt the characterisation ultimately let it down.
