Product description

Review

Praise for ‘The Embers of Heaven’:

‘A magical tale with strong mystical elements.’
www.HagHarlotsHeroines.com

‘An intense, beautifully told tale…a rare treat.’
www.myshelf.com

Praise for Alma Alexander and her books:

‘“The Secrets of Jin-Shei” is a completely original – and a completely magical piece of literature.' Joanne Harris

'It's a beguiling notion, a secret sisterhood with its own language, enhanced by a setting in medieval China, replete with tradition, conflict and drama…the unique structure brings together a rich cast. The complex plot touches on astrology and alchemy, Taoism and concubines, and an attempt to hold power within a society fraught with intrigue…it is extraordinarily accomplished.' Financial Times

'The story is founded on the special friendships that exist among women. The strength of those friendships is the magic that winds through this tale…the device of a written language known only to women is a lovely metaphor…this is a book that will speak to many.' Robin Hobb

'In this magical novel, Alexander vividly recreates a world of Cloud Empresses, alchemists and beggar kings, but more importantly, she also gives us a group of utterly convincing and sympathetic characters, who linger in the memory long after the epic story has been told…exciting, moving and unforgettable…strongly recommended.'

'Beautifully written, with rich characterisation and captivating originality, it quickly draws you in and is a real page-turner.' Glasgow Evening Times

'The Last Samurai has nothing on this complex adventure.' Belfast Telegraph
