My Thoughts:
Liz, Henry, and Sue are back for more Jian Ke adventures in the second Dragon's Pupils book, The Peaks.
Rose is new in town and is very popular. Henry is attracted to her, and she strings him along. Sue gets jealous and decides to get drunk. In her drunkenness, she tells Blake and his friends about her secret.
Henry and Sue loose all memory of their powers, and all three Jian Ke (including Liz) loose their power. Rose then disappears, only to reappear months later as a commander for the SSF, a government agency that protects citizens from evil.
The SSF starts to kill like crazy,and any animal caught talking English is immediately considered evil. It's up to Liz to help her friends regain their powers and save the animals, especially since the gun used to kill them turns them into vampires. But can she do it?
This was a good book and I definitely can't wait to read the next book in the series! As most of my wonderful followers would know, I love the classic vampire-werewolf paranormal thing, but this book provides an almost "classic" feel to the fantasy genre and it really is a refreshing read. Another great thing I really enjoy when reading these books is the culture that you learn from them; I love learning new things about Chinese culture that I would most likely have lived my whole life not knowing if I hadn't read this book.
Like I said, I'm looking forward to reading the next one, and hopefully many more from Martin Chu Shui.
