Description

"With rich mythology and elegant atmosphere, Empress of All Seasons will latch onto your imagination and sweep you along for a magical and dangerous ride."--Joelle Charbonneau, New York Times best-selling author of The Testing Trilogy and Eden Conquered

"Jean's world building is incredible and reflects her Japanese heritage, from the richly described landscapes of the animal wives' home to the city of Honoku to the seasonal rooms. Action, romance, family, and self-discovery are all parts of Mari's journey...In a genre that is quick to make trilogies and quartets, this is laudable as a standalone that fully tells its story within a single volume."--Booklist

"The author uses Japanese folklore elements to effectively craft an engaging story that also questions the power structures of heaven and earth, male and female, human and yōkai. A narrative that will engage fans of the genre with a much-needed non-Western setting."--Kirkus

"This well-written fantasy will keep teens engaged. =Recommended for fans of Victoria Aveyard's 'Red Queen' series and Cindy Pon's Serpentine. A strong purchase for YA shelves."--School Library Journal

"The three protagonists' efforts to define themselves against family expectations build a compelling narrative framework, and there are many strong, interesting female side characters." --The Bulletin of the Center for Children's Books

"An enchanting, gripping novel." --Shelf Awareness
