" Perfect read for fans of Avatar: The Last Airbender. " said.

" zodiac signs are a few of my favorite things. I need to read this book. SERIOUSLY CAN'T WAIT. " said.

" I loved this action-packed adventure with a unique twist on super-powers. The author does a fabulous job of world building and character development. I was rooting for the heroine to succeed and was surprised by the twists and turns in the story! I'll be back for more! " said.

" I really liked this book, even though it is geared toward a younger audience. I think it would make great animated movie. I see there may be a sequel, I look forward to reading it! " said.

" Usagi, the young female protagonist, is relatable and inspiring. I fell in love with her and this whole book. I can't wait for the next book in this series. It's going to be a series, right? " said.

" I found the premise behind this book to be irresistible and reading it did not disappoint. The world building was top notch, and the author took plenty of time to establish the characters and let their relationships bloom throughout the story. The build to the ending was a little slow for my liking, and I saw the twist coming well before it was revealed, but that did not detract too much from my enjoyment. I'm looking forward to see where this solid middle grade series goes next! " said.

"I enjoyed this book and felt like it was a great introduction to a new series. I thought she did a great job showing the Asian inspiration and melding it into a believable story. It was a nice change that the story takes place over months, but at times it also made the story fell like it wasn't progressing fast enough. Also, it reminded me a little of the Star Wars prequels...not in plot or anything, but in the way that NO one explained why things were done so that the one being trained became frustrated and resentful, it's just thankful that Usagi was stronger in faith than Anakin." said.

"Thank you to Edelweiss+ and the publisher for an eARC of this book.

I thoroughly enjoyed this fantasy read by Cindy Lin. Usagi and her sister, Uma, have special zodiac powers in a land where such things are now forbidden. When Uma is kidnapped by the Dragonlord, Usagi desperately wants to rescue her, but befriends a group of Heirs of the Twelve who are willing to train her to develop her powers before she tries to set Uma free. Usagi's decision comes at a price she is unaware she's going to have to pay.

I really like stories where characters must develop their own powers to rise up and face adversity, especially with a supportive group of friends, a mentor, and some unexpected obstacles. I appreciated Usagi developing her own skills before going to rescue her sister rather than taking off on a half-baked mission. I think it will appeal to many kids who not only like a story about a quest (as the Heirs are also trying to retrieve the 12 lost treasures) but skilled warriors with developed senses and magical abilities.
