Kids say (1 ):

"Wuxia," or "martial heroes," is a popular genre in Asia, and this homage to them brings all the magic and romance readers demand. Ahn and Altan are dynamic, relatable characters,and author June C. L.Tan makes the most of them by splitting their perspectives in alternating chapters, building suspense until they finally meet. Tan is highly competent at world-building, providing a richly detailed backdrop for her plot, which brims with action and romance. An impressive debut, Fire Jade Gold leaves enough hints of further adventures to whet the appetites of now-loyal readers.
