Friends, I haven’t been active in terms of blogging, and it’s all because college has been kicking me in the butt. Oof, what’s new?
But anyway, I am very, very excited to finally introduce this week’s blog tour for The Dragon Warrior by Katie Zhao! Katie is an incredibly dear friend of mine, and I’m so happy to be able to put together a little something to help hype up her debut novel.
Learn more about the blog tour by reading the rest of this post, and participate through the hashtag #DragonWarriorTour. If you’d like to sign up for my future blog tours, you can also opt to sign up as a coffee bean for Caffeine Book Tours!

read the full synopsis.
Inspired by Chinese mythology, this high-action middle-grade fantasy follows an outcast as she embarks on a quest to prove herself–perfect for fans of Aru Shah and the End of Time and The Serpent’s Secret.
As a member of the Jade Society, twelve-year-old Faryn Liu dreams of honoring her family and the gods by becoming a warrior. But the Society has shunned Faryn and her brother Alex ever since their father disappeared years ago, forcing them to train in secret.
Then, during an errand into San Francisco, Faryn stumbles into a battle with a demon–and helps defeat it. She just might be the fabled Heaven Breaker, a powerful warrior meant to work for the all-mighty deity, the Jade Emperor, by commanding an army of dragons to defeat the demons. That is, if she can prove her worth and find the island of the immortals before the Lunar New Year.
With Alex and other unlikely allies at her side, Faryn sets off on a daring quest across Chinatowns. But becoming the Heaven Breaker will require more sacrifices than she first realized . . . What will Faryn be willing to give up to claim her destiny?
This richly woven contemporary middle-grade fantasy, full of humor, magic, and heart, will appeal to readers who love Roshani Chokshi and Sayantani DasGupta.
