Reviews

*"Lee has created an adrenaline-filled space opera with mythological creatures living alongside humans. It is refreshing to see both Korean elements and a nonbinary character seamlessly integrated into the storyline. A high-octane, science-fiction thriller painted with a Korean brush and a brilliant example of how different cultures can have unique but accessible cosmology and universal appeal."--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
*"Lee skillfully weaves Korean folklore into this space opera narrative, creating dynamic and relatable characters. VERDICT With ghosts, pirates, and a rollicking space adventure, there's a little something for everyone here."--School Library Journal (starred review)
"I was so impressed by DRAGON PEARL. The story is multi-layered, the world construction is
impeccable-with an awesome intersection of tech and culture-and it is totally compelling to
read. Min's nuanced feelings about her magic, her family, and her fox heritage are marvelously complicated. I loved her, and I know you will, too!"--E.K. Johnston, author of
E.K. Johnson, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Ahsoka
"Lee offers a perfect balance of space opera and Korean mythology with enough complexity to appeal to teens."--Publishers Weekly

I loved every moment of it and want the next book NOW so I can explore all the Thousand Worlds with Min!This book is brilliant and gorgeous, and why didn't I have it when I was a kid "--Ellen Oh, author of Spirit Hunters and the Prophecy series
