Originally written in 1983, this book was twenty or thirty years ahead of its time, with a great female protagonist who drives the story and a healthy dose of Chinese mysticism. That makes it maybe ten years behind where we are now, where some elements are handled in a way that you don't quite wince at, but you certainly notice. Still, it's aged better than many of its contemporaries, and is a quicker read that you can often find today. I particularly enjoyed the elegant and eloquent manner of speech between the two main characters, helping to elevate it to a loftier level of enjoyment. ~ Reviewed by Andrew Bugenis
