About the Author
Graci Kim is the national best-selling author of The Last Fallen Star, the first book in the Gifted Clans trilogy. A Korean-Kiwi diplomat turned author, Graci writes about the magic she wants to see in the world. In a previous life she used to be a cooking show host, and she once ran a business that turned children's drawings into cuddly toys. When she's not lost in her imagination, you'll find Graci drinking flat whites, eating ramyeon, and most likely hugging a dog (or ideally, many). She lives in New Zealand with her husband and daughter. Find her at www.gracikim.com and follow her on Twitter @gracikim and Instagram @gracikimwrites.
"With dry humor and rough-and-tumble theatrics, Riley’s story continues as she grapples with guilt, belonging, and her own identity and self-confidence. The novel deftly balances the fun and the serious. The stakes are high, though Riley simply wants to do the right thing for her family and her community. A nonstop, Korean-inspired fantasy adventure that also tackles darker emotions."——Kirkus Reviews
*"Folklore enthusiasts will rejoice at the return to monster-filled lands and new whimsical worlds where anything can happen, and Riley’s signature fun attitude and relatable voice will captivate readers who are just meeting her here, as she continues to search for a sense of belonging in a world that constantly challenges her identity."——Booklist (starred review)
