Description

From the bestselling author of Daughters of the Dragon comes the story of one of the most extraordinary queens in history.

As tensions rise on the Korean peninsula, US diplomat Nate Simon is sent to Seoul to gauge the political situation and advise the president. He also needs to find out why someone sent the president an ancient, intricately carved comb with an ivory inlay of a two-headed dragon. Though familiar with Korea’s language and culture, Nate knows little of its troubled history. Beautiful and mysterious embassy aide Anna Carlson believes it’s time he learns, starting with the extraordinary story of Korea’s last queen.

Seoul, 1866. The beautiful orphan Ja-young is chosen to be the child bride of Gojong, Korea’s boy king. Highly intelligent but shy, Ja-young faces a choice: she can be a stone queen - silent and submissive - or she can be a dragon queen and oppose enemies and empires that try to rule Korea during the age of imperialism. Her choice leads her to forge a legend that will endure far beyond her lifetime.

The more Nate discovers, the more he comes to realize that Queen Min’s story is still relevant today. Now the choice is up to him: be submissive and accepting…or change the world.

A bit cheesy

The previous book Daughters of the Dragon is much better. Several of the modern time chapters are cheesy and unlikely to happen. Narration made it bearable.

History of Korea comes alive

This is a must read for anyone interested in Asian, especially Korean, history. It is a heart wrenching story and shows the unexpected twists and turns if life. It also shows he strength of character and conviction of one woman, actually two women, as a servant was equally as compell

Enthralling!

I know almost nothing about Korea or its history. I found this book to be engrossing and informative. It was not only an enthralling story, but a learning experience about a time and place that I’d never had an opportunity to explore before. I highly recommend it!
