    "This is a cool twist on one of the most popular fairy tales around. It's modern and dystopian and just a neat re-imagining in my opinion. Even though she was a cyborg, Cinder was totally relatable. I can't wait to read the rest of the series."

    "I was very moved by my travels to Japan and China a few years ago, and gained a whole new perspective on their culture and legends beyond what I just see in the movies or on TV. So when I saw this book I had to give it a read. It offered a really unique take on the ancient Asian mythology and I got completely taken by Shai's mythical journey. A real page turner."

    "Fantasy and science fiction books have a tendency of being dominated by certain cultures. Golden Daughter takes a turn away from that and has more of an Asian theme to it. I enjoyed reading its refreshing take on fantasy and as always with Stengl, she doesn't disappoint."

    "I was not particularly interested in this story. I thought it was kind of boring to be honest. There are much better fantasy books out there. I did not particularly like the characters or the premise either. It can be a serviceable read, but I just did not feel at all engrossed in the story."
