Nature is out of balance in the human world. The sun hasn't shone in years, and crops are failing. Worse yet, strange and hostile creatures have begun to appear. The people's survival hangs in the balance.
To solve the crisis, the oracle stones are cast, and Kaede and Taisin, two seventeen-year-old girls, are picked to go on a dangerous and unheard-of journey to Tanlili, the city of the Fairy Queen. Taisin is a sage, thrumming with magic, and Kaede is of the earth, without a speck of the otherworldly. And yet the two girls' destinies are drawn together during the mission. As members of their party succumb to unearthly attacks and fairy tricks, the two come to rely on each other and even begin to fall in love. But the Kingdom needs only one huntress to save it, and what it takes could tear Kaede and Taisin apart forever.
The exciting adventure prequel to Malinda Lo's highly acclaimed novel Ash is overflowing with lush Chinese influences and details inspired by the I Ching, and is filled with action and romance.

Overdid it just a bit...

I really loved Ash, Malinda Lo's previous novel, which is why I'm being slightly generous with my 4 stars. This author is capable of great things, but the last section of the book let it down. It was too much. We were exhausted by their trip to the cold place and the battle that ensued (trying not to give spoilers). I should have ended there really I think. The final mission was too much. We had adventure fatigue and it diminished the impact that the previous journey had on the reader and the main characters. There was no need for the unicorn. It was silly. Don't get me started on the end result for the girls, but I assume they will meet again in another book down the line...

Didn't finish it, barely started it

The narration is so rough on this one that I couldn't bear it for a whole chapter, unfortunately. Just bland, uninspired, unemotional, slow. Almost like a computer reading to you.

A thrilling and emotional adventure

I was completely consumed by Huntress. The world Lo creates is vibrant, compelling and heady.
