Undaunted, she embraces the unbearable demands of her effort as she pits her burgeoning unfolding spiritual gifts against those who seek to destroy her. Can Yü Lan be victorious in defeating the mighty sorcerers? Can she redeem the land and unloosen the souls of the villagers enslaved by darkness? Judy K. L.
