The Dragon and the Pearl

The Dragon and the Pearl - Jeannie Lin So much about this book took me by surprised. I hated Li Tao in Butterfly Swords and really wanted to see him skewered and dead, but this book completely turned that around for me. I was also looking forward to finally reading a book where the heroine wasn't a virgin, but darn if Lin didn't rip that rug out from under me (though the twist made perfect sense and I rather enjoyed that I didn't see it coming.) Now I can't wait for her next book to come out.
