“Grand in scope, June C.L. Tan’s Jade Fire Gold will have readers racing across the magical landscape of this epic adventure to find themselves staggering at the very end, eagerly anticipating the second book.”SHEAF & INK
Jade Fire Gold Sheaf & Ink Mini Book Review
That ending has me wanting more!
June CL Tan is a debut author that takes Chinese mythology, history, and mixes it into an epic fantasy. Blending all of these elements together for a satisfying read. Readers will be transported to a magical world both rich and vividly crafted, layered with martial arts, Chinese mythology and culture. And friends, let’s not forget the romance. Tan set’s her two main characters Ahn and Altan up so perfectly it’s hard not to fall in love with the idea of these two figuring out the obvious.
With only a few lulls in the story Tan’s debut is a nuanced one featuring themes focusing on self-sacrifice, revenge, and familial bonds that connect beyond blood and duty.
Happy Reading ̴ Cece

Girls of Paper and Fire meets The Tiger at Midnight in June CL Tan’s stunning debut, inspired by Chinese mythology, with rich magic and an epic slow-burn romance.
In an empire on the brink of war . . . Ahn is no one, with no past and no family. Altan is a lost heir, his future stolen away as a child. When they meet, Altan sees in Ahn a path to reclaiming the throne. Ahn sees a way to finally unlock her past and understand her arcane magical abilities. But they may have to pay a far deadlier price than either could have imagined.
