Seamstress Maia Tamarin has always dreamed of being a renowned tailor, but after the war took two of her brothers and returned the third without the use of his legs, she is struggling to cope with her new reality. When a messenger arrives on behalf of the emperor demanding her ailing father compete for the position of imperial tailorâor send his most skilled son in his steadâMaia accepts the invitation herself in disguise. After besting her competitors in several rounds of Project Runway-style challenges, Maia's final task is one many have died endeavoring: she is to create three dresses, made from the laughter of the sun, the tears of the moon, and the blood of the stars. With the help of a pair of magic scissors and Edan, the emperor's beguiling enchanter, Maia travels the kingdom gathering the mythic materials, battling demons, and evading mercenaries. Beautifully written with a can't-wait-for-the-sequel ending, this breathtaking and fast-paced Silk-road inspired fantasy from the author of Mulan-retelling Reflection (2018) is sure to enchant readers beginning to end.
