This is the sequel and final book of this duology.

Six Crimson Cranes
An unputdownable story set in a thorough and enchanting world with intriguing plots, characters, magic and adventure.

Read here my review of the first book in this series.


Once again, Lim has created an enchanting and cultural-rich world with an ending bordering tragedy, but in a beautiful way. Also, we continue exploring the value of strong family bonds and friendship.

What to Expect

  • Action-packed story
  • An attempt of a love triangle
  • A star-crossed or fated love
  • Fantastical creatures and magic
  • A touch of tragedy
  • Deceit, curses and peril

What I Missed

  • It’s true that peril after peril and challenge after challenge, our characters don’t have time to rest; and therefore, sometimes the resolutions to the puzzles happen too fast, almost diminishing the importance of the scenes.
  • The disappearance or lack of protagonism of certain characters leave a hole, like there’s no closure or reason why they aren’t more involved.
  • Some slight open loops are left in the story.
