The Himalayas make for vivid action, and this thoughtful fantasy is a solid debut. In Karma of the Sun, author Brandon Ying Kit Boey concocts a post-nuclear adventure that resonates with ancient magic and spirituality. The main character is both admirable and relatable, and never portrayed as an Asian stereotype. Adventurous readers will be rewarded.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
