Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: Usagi can hear a squirrel's heartbeat from a mile away, and soar over treetops in one giant leap. She was born in the year of the wood rabbit, and it's given her extraordinary zodiac gifts. But she can never use them, not while the mysterious, vicious Dragonlord hunts down all those in her land with zodiac powers. Instead, she must keep her abilities--and those of her rambunctious sister Uma--a secret. After Uma is captured by the Dragonguard, Usagi can no longer ignore her powers. She must journey to Mount Jade with the fabled Heirs of the Twelve, a mystical group of warriors who once protected the land. As new mysteries unfold, Usagi must decide who she stands with, and who she trusts, as she takes on deadly foes on her path to the elusive, dangerous Dragonlord himself.

    In this rip-roaring debut, Lin introduces a world straight out of a fantasy RPG, where the Chinese zodiac influences everyday life. Usagi was born in the year of the wood rabbit and has rabbit-related powers. Her sister, Uma, was born in the year of the fire horse, and has fire and horse powers. But their island nation was invaded, and their oppressors hunt down anyone they find with zodiac powers, now including Uma. So Usagi follows the Heirs of the Twelve Warriors of the zodiac to train so she can get her sister back. All of the main characters' names are descriptive of their animal sign in Japanese or Korean, and the world they inhabit is a combination of various East Asian cultures. It has all the characteristics of a heroic adventure, with a main character who hasn't been groomed to climb a mythical mountain and train as a warrior, but who makes it anyway. Ideal for fans of stories with lots of heart, great lore, and plenty of twists along the way. Grades 4-7. Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.
