Description

Thirteen-year-old Min comes from a long line of fox spirits. But you’d never know it by looking at her. To keep the family safe, Min’s mother insists that none of them use any fox magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting. They must appear human at all times.

Min would like nothing more than to escape Jinju, her neglected, dust-ridden, and impoverished planet. She’s counting the days until she can follow her older brother, Jun, into the Space Forces and see more of the Thousand Worlds. When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in search of the Dragon Pearl, Min knows that something is wrong. She decides to run away to find him and clear his name.

Min’s quest will have her meeting gamblers, pirates, and vengeful ghosts. It will involve deception, lies, and sabotage. She will be forced to use more fox magic than ever before, and to rely on all of her cleverness and bravery. The outcome may not be what she hoped, but it has the potential to exceed her wildest dreams. This space opera with underpinnings of Korean mythology will transport you to a world far beyond your imagination.
