Publisher's Summary

The Ninja Daughter is an action-packed thriller about a Chinese-Norwegian modern-day ninja with Joy Luck Club family issues who fights the Los Angeles Ukrainian mob, sex traffickers, and her own family to save two desperate women and an innocent child. 

After her sister is raped and murdered, Lily Wong dedicates her life and ninja skills to the protection of women. But her mission is complicated. Not only does she live above the Chinese restaurant owned by her Norwegian father and inspired by the recipes of her Chinese mother, but she has to hide her true self from her Hong Kong tiger mom, who is already disappointed at her less-than-feminine ways, and who would be horrified if she knew what she had become. 

But when a woman and her son she escorted safely to an abused women’s shelter return home to dangerous consequences, Lily is forced to not only confront her family and her past, but team up with a mysterious - and very lethal - stranger to rescue them.

I just made a friend! Lily Wong--

I just made a friend! Lily Wong-- a kick-ass girl who knows her mind, body and mission! Not afraid and takes no prisoners! Lily told me of her adventures while I was riding in my car. I was arriving to my destinations too quickly! I found myself connecting (not that I'm in any way close to her level of cool!) to her. I love that she eats!, glad to see her relationship with her mother evolve and most importantly she shows us what a strong, confident woman she is. A fun read (on in my case "listen")! Thank you to the wonderful reader Natalie Naudus for giving Lily such a great voice and more importantly to Tori Eldrige who brought Lily to life. Girl power!

An excellent story you'll want more

The story and narration are top notch. The characters are well fleshed out and the story is engrossing. I hope to see more of Lilly, her family and allies.

Horrible narration and going nowhere

NO SPOILERS! I wanted to like this book but the narrator sucks. She has a lisp... how does someone with a lisp become a narrator? Beyond the horrible narration I couldn’t get past chapter six. The protagonist was just babbling on and on with no plot in sight. This book is free and I can see why.

just ok.

the performance was bad. Anytime the performer switched voices, they all sounded the same. Hispanic characters had East European accents, everyone sounded the same. I finished the book just to see if I had figured out the correct plot and I was. Maybe the book is better?

Very entertaining

I lived and worked in los angles since 1978. As Lily traveled through the city it felt like I was on the bike with her. Excellent job. I hope this the first of many adventures

I love the story...... but

The story was great. A strong feminist read where the lead doesn't need saving and instead can handle whatever comes her way. At least that's the gist I got from it since the narrator choice made it almost impossible to listen to. She doesn't sound west coast, california girl at all..... as a matter of fact I had to check to see if it was Natasha Leggero reading because the narrator sounds like a stuck up east coast socialite. Sorry, I really wanted to like this but I had to delete after 5 chapters. I'll try reading it without the narration.
