Descendant of the Crane by Joan He

Publication Date: April 2nd, 2019

Goodreads Summary
Princess Hesina’s world is teetering on calamity. She would rather sneak out of the palace through the secret tunnels her father showed her than face the responsibilities of the crown. That is, until the king is found dead, mysteriously poisoned. Hesina’s court is packed with dissemblers and deceivers, eager to use the king’s assassination for political gain, and it falls on Hesina to lead her people and find her father’s true killer.


Everything about this book screams epic. I love the type of fantasy books that delve into the political intrigues and betrayals of the world, especially when it has the assassination of the king making everyone a suspect and no one to trust. I think Hesina’s journey will be an interesting one and I can’t wait to see how she navigates her position as a leader.

What’s your most anticipated book?
