Publisher's Summary

It’s like the start of a bad joke: a Master of Tomes, his apprentice, and 90 world-saving records get lost at sea.

Mei Li really wishes the joke wasn’t her life. For two years she’s been stranded in a remote village with no knowledge of where her master is or what’s going on in the world. What she does know is one: She refuses to be sacrificed to the “god” the villagers think lives on the mountain; two: She fully plans on negotiating with said “god” (who, luckily for her, turns out to be a dragon more than happy to rescue her). 

Her relief over being rescued is short-lived when she learns that her master is still lost, along with the tomes detailing how to reseal and fix all the upcoming problems for the next decade. And at least four world disasters are due to be prevented in the next two months. To make matters worse, the Tomes Masters are the only people in the world who carry the knowledge of how to reseal the pesky problems like 5,000-year-old sleeping demons and disintegrating harbor walls. 

With her master gone, everyone is looking to Mei Li for answers she doesn’t have but still has to procure. Her options are to solve the disasters - with high potential for the world ending - or somehow find Master and the missing tomes.

Right now, Mei Li wants to go back in time and punch her six-year-old self for being an idiot. Being able to read books all day is not worth the stress of dealing with ancient, evil things on a regular basis.

Flawed

Hoping the author improves in future.
Disappointed that the "plucky and resourceful" heroine does not have the interpersonal skills to calm the fears of an isolated and backward community. Really, if she's so smart why couldn't she politely make friends and maneuver herself to where they would allow her to have the resources she needed. Or quietly squirrel things away until she could use them. Did she sit on her hands for 2 years?

Oh, and will we ever find out what happened to all those virgins that were sent to the dragon that didn't want to eat them? He couldn't carry them anywhere.

It may be pleasant to identify with a perfect heroine who has everything going her way, but ultimately it's just boring. ( marysue)
