I think this book is one of the best books I have ever read. This book is about an emperor that is trying to become immortal and in doing that kidnaps Pinmei's grandmother, Amah, so Pinmei and her friend Yishan go to save her. Along the way, they meet new friends, make enemies, and test their friendship. My favorite thing about this book is the way it is written. Throughout the book, there are stories to tell about the past and how that is connected to what is happening in the present. I would totally recommend this book to anyone that likes adventure and an amazing plot.
