The Singing Hills Cycle

Set in a world reminiscent of Imperial China, Nghi Vo’s feminist high fantasy Singing Hills Cycle follows the rise of Empress In-yo, her friendship with the handmaiden Rabbit, and her determination to break free from the confines of her arranged political marriage and forge her own destiny.

“A tale of rebellion and fealty that feels both classic and fresh, The Empress of Salt and Fortune is elegantly told, strongly felt, and brimming with rich detail. An epic in miniature, beautifully realised.”—British Fantasy Award-winning author Zen Cho
