Plot: The novel follows Emmajin, granddaughter of the Great Khan Khubilai. Though she is a woman, she dreams of becoming a warrior in the Khan’s army and earning honour and glory on the battlefield. The arrival of Marco Polo throws off all her plans. She must struggle between her ambition and her budding love for this charming foreigner.
Why I’m waiting: A historical fiction set in 13th century China starring a warrior woman and a romance with Marco Polo? How could I possibly resist?
You can find out more about Dori Yang Jones, her book and Marco Polo on her website.
Waiting on Wednesday is a weekly event hosted by Breaking the Spine. I plan to participate for the next year at least (because my to read pile really needs to be longer ;P). If you’d like to join in, grab a graphic, write a post and leave a link on her site.
