Girls of Paper and Fire meets The Tiger at Midnight in June CL Tan’s stunning debut, inspired by Chinese mythology, with rich magic and an epic slow- burn romance.

In an empire on the brink of war . . .
Ahn is no one, with no past and no family.
Altan is a lost heir, his future stolen away as a child.
When they meet, Altan sees in Ahn a path to reclaiming the throne. Ahn sees a way to finally unlock her past and understand her arcane magical abilities. But they may have to pay a far deadlier price than either could have imagined.

Ferocious action, shadowy intrigue, and a captivating romance collide in June CL Tan’s debut, a stunning homage to the Xianxia novel with a tender, beating heart, perfect for fans of The Bone Witch and We Hunt the Flame.

❧ Bookish Coven Rating


4 Stars

The main characters we follow is Ahn & Altan, through alternating povs. There are so many intriguing world details, and I thoroughly enjoyed the writing style. 

Book Checklist:

✔ Enemies to Lovers (along with the classic dose of bantering)
✔ Morally Grey MC
✔ Asian rep
✔ Chinese Mythology
✔ LGBTQIA+ characters

Overall, for a debut, this has solid character development, along with rich and complex worldbuilding. My only complain is that the ending felt rushed…

About June CL Tan

June CL Tan grew up in Singapore where she was raised on a diet of classic books and wuxia movies, caffeine and congee. After obtaining three degrees, she decided she had enough of academia.
