Product description

Product Description

The fabled Silk Route reveals many stories as it winds through Central Asia—wars, conquests, dreams, riches, and mysteries. One of those mysteries—an ancient secret thousands of years old—lies hidden deep within the Mogao Caves.

Young siblings Orchid and Monkey Huang are about to discover how powerful and dangerous that secret is. A mystical force pulls them to a land facing a deadly war between two rival dynasties. As they're drawn into a conflict with mythical gods, a vengeful sorcerer, the pernicious Great Powers, battle-hardened soldiers, and ferocious beasts, Orchid and Monkey must uncover their own great powers and talents.

2.0 out of 5 stars Mixed Feelings... 23 July 2016
By Joy - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition
First time around, only got to page 75 before I gave up on this book. The writing is so stiff for the most part, especially the dialogue. It was hard to get immersed in the book and the only reason it's not getting 1 star is because the plot and concept was really intriguing (which was why I stuck it out as long as I did).

Also, let's not overlook how an 11 year old girl who, although she may have seen poverty in her travels, has been for the most part sheltered and privileged. But somehow knows martial arts well enough to take out several trained fighters at once. I could take a leap of faith that whatever martial arts she knew was "enhanced" by gods or whatnot, but I can't accept that this little girl who is supposed to be more a "kind scholar" type can just snap spines, necks, etc and kill these soldiers without hesitation. Or without being eaten up with remorse on her actions.

Second time around, I managed to complete it (mostly because it was for a Goodread's group reading challenge).

About a little 1/3 through, it did get a lot better, but kept back sliding into that rigidness that really threw off the story. There were times,the story was able to override how he was portraying it (because the circumstances, events, and build up were pretty good concepts).

But overall, it was very hard to get through. The ending fight was a bit disappointing, in my opinion, but I thought the addition of the story of Monkey and Orchid's older sister was very sweet. Glad that the book actually ended and didn't leave off on a weird cliff hanger. Despite all that though, still will be leaving the review at 2 stars.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun, fun, fun 21 May 2012
By Imaged - Published on
Modern meets ancient, east meets west in this story that would be fun to see on the big screen as a movie.

The characters have great texture, and feel round and real. The settings, though fantasy, feel authentic. Its a fun journey to see how the main character's new talents and abilities affect them throughout the arc of the story, and how they fare against the devil himself. You never realize how good you've got it until you don't.

One of my favorite characters is an innocent little girl for whom you will likely also develop a lot of affection. Her purity of intent and purpose are inspiring.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome book 20 March 2012

This book is as good as the Harry Potter books. It was action packed and I really dived into it. I couldn't stop reading.
