Sara’s fantastical journey begins during a school trip to the Beijing Palace Museum when she’s shot back in time from present-day Beijing and finds herself inside the thousand-year-old Qingming scroll. In this time zone Sara meets an old man who warns her that the Gang of the White Fawn will kill them both if she doesn’t do as he says, namely deliver his saddlebag to a silk merchant called Wan Yi. While encountering famous fortune-tellers, storytellers and Imperial doctors, Sara draws on the wisdom of her grandmother’s stories to navigate her way through the gathering forces of ancient magic as she’s tasked by the Immortals to find the second and third hares to add to the first they present her with.

The evocation of the ancient world is vibrant throughout, with a cinematic depiction of natural landscape and legend, and a strong sense of tension and peril intensifying as the novel progresses. The authors’ passion for ancient Chinese culture and love of fantasy is abundantly apparent.
