About the book:
In this novel, we follow Johannan an orphan boy who seeks a god in China that can help him with his fiancée’s blindness. His adventure starts when he found said god and he agreed to give Johannan the cure to Ayushi’s ,his love’s, blindness as long as he follows all the tasks that is given to him.
Exciting Chinese Adventure
The novel is composed of short but very colorful chapters. Chapters that will make you not want to put the book down. It is filled with different scenarios and descriptive words that make you want to go to provincial China to see for yourself what Johannan is in.
The characters, specially Johannan is someone you would want to be part of your hiking group if ever he is from our time.
I do not want to narrate more of what happens in the book because I do not want to spoil anyone of you about what transpired in the story. 😄 Plus it is a book series and this is the first book of said series, so I do not want to judge it too early.
Missing in the forests
What I did not find entertaining or amusing is that the novel lacks a sense of suspense in some situations that the main character was put in. As usual, I found myself lost in some instances but I do know it is my short-attention span that should be blamed for that.
There are times in the novel that Johannan was relatable and there are times where I could not understand why he put himself into such a fuss for a solution that can just be put aside because love is past that simple dilemma.
The book is a good weekend read and a good break from the intense book reading that is usually a signature in such novels that fall in the same genre. I can’t compare it to Harry Potter but I do see similarities in their stories but of course HP is hard to beat. I do think this book will be a great read for those who loved the HP franchise but do not expect too much from it.
I am thankful that I was given a chance to discover and read this book in exchange for an honest review.
I hope you take time to purchase and read this book. 😄
