    A slave. A spy. A promise. Joseon Dynasty, Korea: A humid summer storm rages across the Pavilion, the greatest entertainment house in the sprawling city of Hanyang. Within its stifling walls a gisaeng slave girl hides a fugitive in her bed, unexpectedly saving the life of a young man who is not all he seems. Immediately Seorin is thrust into a razor-edged world of conspiracy and spies, doomed rebellion and murky intrigue. For the first time in years, she glimpses an opportunity for change. Yet it is not her freedom Seorin so desperately desires, but something far more precious. She will risk anything, even death, to gain it. A dark and romantic historical adventure set in old Korea.

This is another exciting romantic drama from Lee Evie!  I loved A Song for Lonely Wolves a few weeks ago and this is another fantastic novel!  Set in the Joseon period of Korea, this novel follows Seorin, a giaseng slave girl from the most popular entertainment house in the city of Hanyang.  As the story progresses, Seorin finds herself entangled in a dangerous world filled with spies, conspiracy, and hope!

From the start, you want to root for Seorin!  She is a classic heroine who doesn’t loose hope, even in the most dangerous situation.  I found myself so engrossed in the story that I didn’t realize it was ending!  This is such a beautiful portrait of the Joseon period and I was so excited to learn about this period!  Lee Evie is so skilled at bringing characters to life that you care so much about!  This is my second foray into the Korean Drama subgenre and I am so glad I’ve found it! 

As with A Song for Lonely Wolves, this book has great pacing, an intriguing plot, and the right amount of romance!  This is another can’t miss historical fiction novel!  I’m excited to get into this genre!

Thank you to Lee Evie and the team at Historical Fiction Virtual Book Tours!  This is my honest review.  See all of the other tour stops and enter the giveaway!
