Warrior girl Anlei lives in a world of mechanical dragons, automatons with Chinese opera masks, and shadow spirits who are terrorizing her city. In an effort to save her people, she teams up with a young thief and the two embark on an epic quest that takes them all the way to the Courts of Hell. But the existence of the shadow spirits is more complicated than either of them could have imagined. It wasn't a demon who created these beings, but a power-hungry man.

Dark experiments, unique magic, and a page-turning plot bring this vivid steampunk world to life. Stronger Than a Bronze Dragon spins together fantasy and adventure in a way that will delight fans looking for new worlds to explore.
