Waterstones Says

Beginning the Celestial Kingdom duology, Tan's evocative fantasy is a sweeping story of magic, romance and mythology that takes the legend of the Chinese moon goddess as its jumping off point.

A captivating debut fantasy inspired by the legend of the Chinese moon goddess.

A young woman's quest to free her mother pits her against the most powerful immortal in the realm, setting her on a dangerous path where those she loves are not the only ones at risk...

Growing up on the moon, Xingyin is accustomed to solitude, unaware that she is being hidden from the powerful Celestial Emperor who exiled her mother for stealing his elixir of immortality. But when her magic flares and her existence is discovered, Xingyin is forced to flee her home, leaving her mother behind.

Alone, powerless, and afraid, she makes her way to the Celestial Kingdom, a land of wonder and secrets. Disguising her identity, she seizes an opportunity to train in the Crown Prince's service, learning to master archery and magic, despite the passion which flames between her and the emperor's son.

To save her mother, Xingyin embarks on a perilous quest, confronting legendary creatures and vicious enemies, across the earth and skies.

But when treachery looms and forbidden magic threatens the kingdom, she must challenge the ruthless Celestial Emperor for her dream -striking a dangerous bargain, where she is torn between losing all she loves or plunging the realm into chaos.

Daughter of the Moon Goddess begins an enchanting, romantic duology which weaves ancient Chinese mythology into a sweeping adventure of immortals and magic, of loss and sacrifice - where love vies with honour, dreams are fraught with betrayal, and hope emerges triumphant.

MEDIA REVIEWS

“Sue Lynn Tan has written a breathtaking debut novel that will sweep readers away to the moon and back. I can’t remember the last time a book surprised and delighted me as much as this one. Epic, romantic, and enthralling from start to finish. I love this book.” Stephanie Garber, #1 NYT bestselling author of the Caraval series 'Tan sweeps the reader away on an epic and romantic adventure, rendered in lovely prose and driven by a strong-willed protagonist, whose quest for ​justice is as gripping as it is exquisite.' Samantha Shannon, bestselling author of The Priory of the Orange Tree “This vivid, unputdownable debut effortlessly whisks us into the celestial realms of Chinese high fantasy. Tan magnificently conjures the romantic yet dangerous dazzle of this immortal world, but never loses track of the shining human heart of her tale. A captivating treat for lovers of Chinese fantasy dramas and newcomers alike.” Shelley Parker-Chan, bestselling author of She Who Became the Sun “A lush, dreamy gem of a novel.” Shannon Chakraborty, bestselling author of The City of Brass "A stirring romantic fantasy set in a richly realised world inspired by Chinese mythology.
