But a Chinese assassin is on her trail, determined to kill her and Li Zhong, and where Kwan discovers her father has disappeared, she sets out on a journey to find him and deliver her precious cargo, a quest that she may not survive.
Windmills by Lyndi Alexander was a great read! The story was very interesting. I love that the main character wasn't typical, like most novels. She was of asian descent, she wasn't knowledgeable about everything, and she made mistakes. She was a real girl, and I loved that.
The book gave me a "Karate Kid" vibe, which was interesting. I love that we got to go on this adventure with Kwan and Li Zhong. The book was in 3rd person, which I enjoyed because it felt like someone was telling me the story. The point of view was always 3rd person, but it focused on the different characters to show what they thought of what was going on.
The book itself was well written. Lyndi did a great job with the language and the culture of the people in the book. I feel like she really did her research and a great job of putting all of her information an her settings as well as all of her information on her characters in her book. I also liked that there were plenty of twists and turns to enjoy with this book.
I really enjoyed the stories. They were just really well written and very interesting. The ending to the book made me want to read the next book! It was really great, and Lyndi did a great job with this book. I can't wait to read the next one. I am definitely giving this book 5 out of 5 stars!
