#Friday56 – Descendant of the Crane

FriYAY is here at last!

This week’s Friday 56 comes from Descendant of the Crane by Joan He. I squealed with excitement the moment I was accepted for this from NetGalley so big thanks to them, Titan Books and Joan He for the opportunity to read this book.

Hosted by Freda’s Voice, the Friday 56 is a weekly bookish prompt. It’s quite easy to do and could cover no end of different books and genres so seems great if you’re looking for a quick snippet to discover something new!


*Grab a book, any book.
*Turn to page 56 or 56% in your eReader (If you have to improvise, that’s ok.)
*Find any sentence, (or few, just don’t spoil it)
*Post it.
*Add your (url) post here in Linky. Add the post url, not your blog url.
*It’s that simple.


Descendant of the Crane is the perfect balance of political intrigue and mystery all set in a fantastical oriental inspired world. The ending was an absolute rollercoaster of revelations and the Epilogue just left me wanting more, more, more! If you enjoyed Forest of a Thousand Lanterns and Song of Sorrow then Descendant of the Crane may be the love-child of the two that you’ve been searching for. You can check out my full review here!
