Synopsis: Growing up on the moon, Xingyin is accustomed to solitude, unaware that she is being hidden from the powerful Celestial Emperor who exiled her mother for stealing his elixir of immortality. But when Xingyin’s magic flares and her existence is discovered, she is forced to flee her home, leaving her mother behind.

Alone, untrained, and afraid, she makes her way to the Celestial Kingdom, a land of wonder and secrets. Disguising her identity, she seizes an opportunity to learn alongside the Crown Prince, mastering archery and magic, even as passion flames between her and the emperor’s son.

To save her mother, Xingyin embarks on a perilous quest, confronting legendary creatures and vicious enemies across the earth and skies. When treachery looms and forbidden magic threatens the kingdom, however, she must challenge the ruthless Celestial Emperor for her dream—striking a dangerous bargain in which she is torn between losing all she loves or plunging the realm into chaos.

Daughter of the Moon Goddess begins an enchanting, romantic duology that weaves ancient Chinese mythology into a sweeping adventure of immortals and magic, of loss and sacrifice—where love vies with honor, dreams are fraught with betrayal, and hope emerges triumphant.

My Review: I have grown obsessed with Chinese mythology after watching Xiran Jay Zhao's youtube channel. I really need to read her book which I will get around to eventually. However, this debut novel was so good. You get the legend of Chang'e and Houyi from the perspective of their daughter and her quest to save her mother from imprisonment. I have to say I'm not the biggest fan of Liwei and I actually prefer Wenzhi. I hope we get to see more of him in the next book. I want him and Xingyin to get back together. 

I'm excited for the sequel to come out whenever it's released. I definitely recommend reading this book if you like Chinese mythology and a good fantasy read. Plus the cover is gorgeous. 

Rating: 5 stars
