I have had this book on my book shelf for a really long time and the Twisted Tales overall have been a little bit hit of miss for me. This one was a total miss, I think in fact it is my lowest rated book so far this year. I was honestly so disappointed.
I have been using a random number generator to pick the books that I read and this one came up. Honestly when it came out I didnt really have a preference either way. I have recently watched the Live action Mulan and it was very middle of the road so I thought that this would at least be better than that.
I honestly just didnt get it. Ping goes against orders to win the war against the Hans but Captain Shang gets very injured in the process, this leaves Mulan feeling guilty so she agrees to go into the underworld to bring Shang back to the land of the living.
In theory the underworld part of the story should have been really interesting and fast paced but for me it was exactly the opposite. The rooms in the underworld were all really similar to one another and nothing particularly interesting happened until the end of the book.
It surprises me that the book has such good reviews on GoodReads because I just couldnt connect with the story at all.
I think if you are a big fan of Mulan then you will probably really like it but if you find her kind of meh then give it a miss and read something else.
Thanks for Reading
