Dreaming of Zhou Gong
Dreaming of Zhou Gong is a fantasy novel set in ancient China during a time where common folk are suffering under the rule of the bloodthirsty Shang empire. The Ji brothers set out with noble intentions to overthrow the emperor and his enchantress and bring peace for the land and it's people, uniting with the Wu, a mysterious community hidden away on the sacred mountain of Li Shan, rumoured to be gifted with the magical blessings of Heaven. This, however, is only the very basics of Dreaming of Zhou Gong, a book layered with twists and turns. It has magic, action, romance, mystery; a little bit of everything you could need in a great story but the real highlight for me was the vast and interesting cast of characters and their dynamic that made for an enjoyable and amusing read. - Megan
