    This is definitely one of the better YA short story collections I have read. As with all anthologies, some stories are much stronger than others, but I enjoyed far more than I disliked. Plus, it was just so great to see the exploration of mythologies we don?t often see in the mainstr...

    Wow, this cover just exudes Asian vibes ...

    This collection of short stories, based on Asian mythology and folkore, was mildly enjoyable, considering that I don't like stories, much less a whole collection. I was drawn to this one only because it got great reviews from people I follow and, well, what do I know about Asian myths?...
