As a Chinese adoptee in St. Louis, teenage Daiyu often feels
out of place. When an elderly Asian jewelry seller at a
street fair shows her a black jade ringâ€”and tells her that
â€śblack jadeâ€ť translates to â€śDaiyuâ€ťâ€”she buys it as a talisman
of her heritage. But itâ€™s more than that; itâ€™s magic.
takes Daiyu through a gateway into a version of St. Louis
much like 19th century China. Almost immediately she is
recruited as a spy, which means hours of training in manners
and niceties and sleight of hand. It also means stealing
time to be with handsome Kalen, who is in on the plan.
Thereâ€™s only one problem. Once her task is done, she must go
back to St. Louis and leave him behind forever. . . .
