IRON WIDOW meets SIX CRIMSON CRANES in this immersive YA fantasy inspired by Chinese legend, perfect for fans of Leigh Bardugo and Chloe Gong.

Aihui Ying’s life is viciously torn apart when her father is killed by a masked assassin. Left with only his journal and a jade pendant snatched from his killer, she vows to take her revenge.

Seeking answers, Ying infiltrates the prestigious Engineers Guild – the ancient institution home to her father’s secret past. There, she begins to navigate a world fraught with politics and treachery.

Soon though, Ying’s quest for vengeance turns into a fight for survival and she’ll have to stay one step ahead of everyone. . .if she’s to make it out alive.

‘A richly detailed and wildly imaginative book.’ - Xiran Jay Zhao, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Iron Widow
