Liang Anlei wants a life of glory and revenge

As a warrior who protects her village from shadow spirits, Anlei has never been beyond the borders of her town. All of that changes the day the viceroy and his fleet of mechanical dragons arrives. It's the protection her village is desperate for, but it will only be given in exchange for Anlei's hand in marriage. Torn between wanting to protect her village and her own freedom, Anlei is forced to make a sacrifice.

The day before her wedding, she encounters Tai, a young thief who is also trying to save his people. Tempted by his quest and the thrill of glory it promises, the two embark on an epic journey to the Courts of Hell to discover where the shadow spirits come from. But the secret of their existence isn't so easily solved.

Amid dark experiments and battles on magic-fueled airships, Anlei must summon the courage to be the hero; to live the life she has always dreamed of.

Review quote

"In this Asian-inspired, steampunk-flavored fantasy, Fan creates a spitfire heroine who is memorable." - Booklist

"Whether [Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon] is read as a series starter or a standalone, its use of Eastern magics and steampunk aesthetics mesh in intriguing ways that may please fans clamoring for creative, non-Western-centered fantasy." - BCCB
