Book review: The Empress of Bright Moon by Weina Dai Randel

This book was truly fascinating. Rich in detail and woven
with historical facts and reimaginings of Empress Wu, The Empress of Bright
Moon is a captivating journey through time to Chinese history and politics. 

I didn’t read the first book in this duology I had a hard time understanding
Mei’s connection with Pheasant. Now I want to (need to) read the first book. 

Thanks to NetGalley and Sourcebooks for granting me access to this digital ARC.

But when Empress Wang takes their feud to a new level by murdering Mei’s supporters, Mei realizes that she must defeat the bloodthirsty Empress—not only to save herself, but also to protect her country.
