The Celestial Kingdom Duology

Daughter Of The Moon Goddess

By Sue Lynn Tan

Daughter Of The Moon Goddess

A captivating debut fantasy inspired by the legend of Chang’e, the Chinese moon goddess, in which a young woman’s quest to free her mother pits her against the most powerful immortal in the realm.

Growing up on the moon, Xingyin is accustomed to solitude, unaware that she is being hidden from the feared Celestial Emperor who exiled her mother for stealing his elixir of immortality. But when Xingyin’s magic flares and her existence is discovered, she is forced to flee her home, leaving her mother behind.

Alone, powerless, and afraid, she makes her way to the Celestial Kingdom, a land of wonder and secrets. Disguising her identity, she seizes an opportunity to learn alongside the emperor’s son, mastering archery and magic, even as passion flames between her and the prince.

To save her mother, Xingyin embarks on a perilous quest, confronting legendary creatures and vicious enemies across the earth and skies. But when treachery looms and forbidden magic threatens the kingdom, she must challenge the ruthless Celestial Emperor for her dream—striking a dangerous bargain in which she is torn between losing all she loves or plunging the realm into chaos.

Daughter of the Moon Goddess begins an enchanting, romantic duology which weaves ancient Chinese mythology into a sweeping adventure of immortals and magic—where love vies with honor, dreams are fraught with betrayal, and hope emerges triumphant.

DOTMG Review:

This book was everything I wanted it to be. Rich with cultural elements, gorgeous writing, characters you can really fall in love with, and a story that sweeps you away. I laughed, cried, and gasped so many times while reading. I had so many emotions that I had to stop reading at some points just to process my thoughts.

There are not enough words for me to express how much I loved this story. While there was romance, the main love story was the love Xingyin has for her mother and how she will do anything to set her free. Liwei is a royal who does not act the typical way a spoiled royal would. He is kind from the beginning, and I loved their relationship. Wenzhi is a hard but caring general who really takes Xingyin under his wing. I adored these characters, and after some twists and major turns, my heart ripped out and stomped upon, Sue Lynn left me wanting more and more.

I can’t wait for more. My heart needs it.
