B&N Kids on Dragon Pearl

Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee

“Dragon Pearl, by Yoon Ha Lee, the most recent book from Rick Riordan Presents, takes Korean mythology on a wild adventure in space, and it’s tremendously fun!

Min may not be a role model for principled rule following, but her brash fearlessness drives this story beautifully! As more and more tangles to her brother’s story emerge, and the stakes get higher, she starts to rely less on her magic and more on her intelligence, and her friends, in a nice bit of character growth. Her fox magic, and the magic of other supernatural types of persons, both living and dead, drawn from the rich well of Korean mythology, are seamlessly interwoven with the science fiction story of danger on board a spaceship in a vast network of planets, making this a truly delightful read for fans of every age!” — B&N Kids

Locus on Dragon Pearl

Dragon Pearl by Yoon Ha Lee

“In the latest title from the Rick Riordan Presents imprint, Korean-American author Yoon Ha Lee transports traditional Korean animal folklore to space in an interplanetary adventure with all the thrills, spills, and surprises that younger teens could want.

It’s an obvious page-turner, and Yoon Ha Lee has nailed what the younger action crowd craves.

There are some very funny moments in Dragon Pearl and plenty of angsty ones as well. There is no romance at all which fits well with the needs of the likely younger audience (and would have spoiled all the action bits, so is not missed).

For good clean outer space fun with the nice addition of Korean folklore and plenty of engaging characters, (both good and evil), Dragon Pearl gets the job done. Also, a shout out to Vivienne To for the stunning cover art – it’s impossible not to love that shot of Min in all her glory, getting ready to take on the universe to find out the truth.” — Locus Magazine
