    This companion novel to Lee's Dragon Pearl (2012) follows a nonbinary tiger spirit named Sebin whose dream is to join the Space Forces and become the captain of a ship like their uncle. When Sebin's acceptance letter finally arrives, so, too, does the news that Uncle Hwan has been stripped of his title as a captain after being declared a traitor in his pursuit of the legendary Dragon Pearl. Sebin quickly realizes that this obvious misunderstanding will greatly hinder their chance to achieve their dream as their family comes under scrutiny. Determined to make a good impression and clear their family name, Sebin climbs aboard the Haetae battle cruiser on their first day as a space cadet, but their plans very quickly go awry. With a delightful mix of Korean mythology and science fiction, Lee expands on the intriguing world of his previous novel to create another exhilarating adventure with a new precocious protagonist. Fans of Dragon Pearl will enjoy this dive back into the Thousand Worlds universe. Grades 3-7. Copyright 2021 Booklist Reviews.
