Will love break the spell? After cruelly rejecting Bao, the poor physician’s apprentice who loves her, Lan, a wealthy nobleman’s daughter, regrets her actions. So when she finds Bao’s prized flute floating in his boat near her house, she takes it into her care, not knowing that his soul has been trapped inside it by an evil witch, who cursed Bao, telling him that only love will set him free. Though Bao now despises her, Lan vows to make amends and help break the spell. 

Together, the two travel across the continent, finding themselves in the presence of greatness in the forms of the Great Forest’s Empress Jade and Commander Wei. They journey with Wei, getting tangled in the webs of war, blood magic, and romance along the way. Will Lan and Bao begin to break the spell that’s been placed upon them? Or will they be doomed to live out their lives with black magic running through their veins?

In this fantastical tale of darkness and love, some magical bonds are stronger than blood.


I love fantasy books, if the story has magic, romance and unique characters, are welcome in my bookcase, and this book was spectacular, the world raised by the author is magical and beautiful.

It is the perfect book for all fans of the Fairy tales, adding it has Asian influences and the characters are fantastic.

His reading is very fluid, when he least dictates me already the story was finished. The story focuses on Lan and Bao, as they travel across the continent, as the reading progresses these characters grow. I was seeing what there are characters in previous books of the author, and that did not stop the story from being understood, on the contrary, I would like Ron to read his previous, Iberians, I love that writers mix some of their stories with their other books fascinates me.
