Sixteen-year-old Suzume is a shadow weaver, trained in the magical art of illusion. She can be anyone she wants to - except herself. Is she the girl of noble birth, trapped by the tyranny of her mother’s new husband, Lord Terayama? A lowly drudge scraping a living in the ashes of Terayama’s kitchens? Or Yue, the most beautiful courtesan in the Moonlit Land? Even Suzume is no longer sure of her true identity. But she is determined to steal the heart of the Moon Prince and exact revenge on her stepfather.

A brilliant read. As always, Zoe Marriott's book are unique and enrapturing. It makes the reader feel as the character feels. You are invested in her struggles with real world problems. It blends cultures and stories seemlessly with just enough of the original, but not too much.
