Rick Riordan Presents Yoon Ha Lee's space opera about thirteen-year-old
Min, who comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you'd never know it by
looking at her. To keep the family safe, Min's mother insists that none of
them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear
human at all times. Min feels hemmed in by the household rules and resents
the endless chores, the cousins who crowd her, and the aunties who judge
her. She would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-
ridden, and impoverished planet. She's counting the days until she can
follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the
Thousand Worlds. When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his
post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is
wrong. Jun would never desert his battle cruiser, even for a mystical
object rumored to have tremendous power. She decides to run away to find
him and clear his name. Min's quest will have her meeting gamblers,
pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and
sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox-magic than ever before, and to
rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she
had hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams. This sci-
fi adventure with the underpinnings of Korean mythology will transport you
to a world far beyond your imagination.
