    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBThis is a wonderful novel about ten girls growing up in an alternate China. They are from different stations in life, from lowly orphan to Imperial heir, but each one is connected through the bond of Jin-Shei, an oath of sisterhood more binding than anything. Even an order from the emperor can be refused, but a request made in the name of Jin-Shei can not. Over the course of their lives, these ten girls and their Jin-Shei bonds will reshape the empire.

    At its heart, The Secrets of Jin-Shei is about the relationships between th

I hated it with the power that only comes from being disappointed and wanting to not hate it. It had potential. It had moments where I thought “Yes! You can do it! You can do it! You… aww fuck.”

    Basic story line:

    Mythical Chinese kingdom.

    Eight Chinese girls.

    Once upon a time.

I can't guarantee about the representation of Asian characters in this book because of the same reason, but if you take it with a grain of salt, I am sure you will enjoy it. It focuses on a sisterhood of sorts of women from all levels of society – rich as well as poor, of humble descent as well as

    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBLove, love, loved this book. I think the publisher is doing it a disservice, though, by its presentation. I thought it was going to be an East Asian domestic drama, about the hidden lives of imperial women. Instead, it turned out to be a sprawling epic that includes fighting and the supernatural. It's about women, yes, in a mythical East Asian country, but it's a fantastical adventure and should be enjoyed as such.

    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBThis book follows the intertwining lives of half a dozen women, bound together by the sacred bond of jinshei-bo, a relationship of kinship that goes far beyond blood ties. Tai, the prepubescent daughter of a Court seamstress, catches the eye of the young Empress in waiting, Antian, and despite the difference in their stations, they become close. Then Antian is killed in a catastrophic (and wonderfully described) earthquake. With her last breath, she urges Tai to take care of her sisters. At first Tai believes this means only the proud and prickly Luidan, daughter of a concubine but after Antian's death, heir to the throne. However, Tai discovers that the rash and yet vulnerable new Dragon Empress is not the only sister Antian left behind.

    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBOverall/Tl;dr
    An impressive book about sisterhood in a China-but-not-China fantasy setting. The first 20% of the book was really very good (I love sisterhood/brotherhood stuff), but I didn't end up enjoying it as much I expected. There's a bit of fantasy, good alternative-history world-building, and lots of characters to read about, but the plot...just didn't work for me.

    Setting/World-building
    Alternate-China with different names and with a sort of low-fantasy magic. 'Jin-Shei' means sister of the heart, essentially an oath of loyalty women can decide to take with one another, and is relevant because the 8(?) characters all have a tangled web of them. The religion and particularly the main city where most of the story takes place was well done and came alive fo

    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBI'd give this novel a 4.5.

    It challenged me in a different sense than any other ‘difficult read’ has – the task of differentiating ten protagonists really tested my short and long term memory banks. This initial need to absorb would likely explain why the first volume was so comparatively inert to the rest of the novel. The atmosphere had been built to be peaceful, curious and idealistic – it was set in the Summer Palace – so even the first disruption proved to be a big shock. The drama had significantly accelerated by the third segment. The ability to create and sustain such different paces within a novel is an admirable skill.

    Apart from the often unpredictable action, what also engaged me was the wisdom that was littered throughout. Yes, it was contextual; often too imaginative and faith-bound for my personal taste – but overall thought-provoking and, at times, reassur

    The Secrets of Jin shei ePUB ☆ The Secrets eBook secrets book, shei mobile, The Secrets mobile, of Jin book, The Secrets of Jin sheiSecrets of Jin pdf, The Secrets of Jin shei PDFEPUBI liked this book, but also didn’t. There were A LOT of characters…something like 10 main characters is a wee bit too many. Certainly a few could be cut. The remaining 7 or so characters were great and I enjoyed their growth and relationships between each other. What I didn’t like was the hocus-pocus ghost crap. It wasn’t necessary! It was a great story of friendship and being bound to tradition and a culture. I could have also done without the last chapter. I read the book, I don’t need a refresher as to what happened earlier. I was actually paying attention. Also? I don’t need to know what happened to every single character to the very end. Cut the last chapter and the ghostie mystical stuff, and it would be the appropriate length, as it is too long with them in. Even with these faults, it was pretty much an enjoyable book that did suck me in and kept me turning the pages.
