Empress Orchid - Anchee Min

Day 7: Book with a Slow Burn But Strong Emotions (Ballad)

 

I'm going with the book I finished most recently, "Empress Orchid".  It starts out fairly slowly, but by the end, I felt I was reading a thriller.  I was so engaged and invested in the characters, that I was torn when Orchid was having to fight for her place in the kingdom.
