“Wilkinson once again blends fantasy and history to create a rich and absorbing portrait of Chinese life during the Han Dynasty… the prose is as strong and sinuous as a dragon's tail.”
“… an unstoppable read. This is a magnificently written and captivating story.”
“Since I finished Garden Of The Purple Dragon, I have tried to read other books but I am finding them boring… I love your books sooooooooooooo much, I just can't bring myself to read anything else! They are all nothing compared to your great books.”
