"Who would have thought Korean mythology would make for such an intense and magical space opera! I loved every moment of it and want the next book NOW so I can explore all the Thousand Worlds with Min!This book is brilliant and gorgeous, and why didn't I have it when I was a kid??"—Ellen Oh, author of Spirit Hunters and the Prophecy series

*“Lee has created an adrenaline-filled space opera with mythological creatures living alongside humans. It is refreshing to see both Korean elements and a nonbinary character seamlessly integrated into the storyline. A high-octane, science-fiction thriller painted with a Korean brush and a brilliant example of how different cultures can have unique but accessible cosmology and universal appeal.”—Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

*“Lee skillfully weaves Korean folklore into this space opera narrative, creating dynamic and relatable characters. VERDICT With ghosts, pirates, and a rollicking space adventure, there’s a little something for everyone here.”—School Library Journal (starred review)

"Lee offers a perfect balance of space opera and Korean mythology with enough complexity to appeal to teens."—Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“I was so impressed by DRAGON PEARL. The story is multi-layered, the world construction is
impeccable—with an awesome intersection of tech and culture—and it is totally compelling to
read. Min’s nuanced feelings about her magic, her family, and her fox heritage are marvelously complicated. I loved her, and I know you will, too!”—E.K. Johnston, author of <br>E.K. Johnson, author of the #1 New York Times best-selling Ahsoka
