That includes that fox spirits get to choose their preferred gender, that some people prefer to be non-gender specific and that people can have multiple spouses of any gender.
It's not heavy-handed, but its throughout the book, and provides an excellent model for how this stuff is actually quite easy to communicate to a younger audience.
Beyond that, as with a lot of middle-grade and young-adult fiction there's a huge focus on acceptance of difference and embracing the various abilities of yourself and others that I think is an overwhelmingly positive message.

Im a cover lover and read this for purely shallow reasons. I listened to the audiobook and found myself not always wanting to listen or tuning out.
But conceptually, this book is great. A shapeshifting fox girl who travels through space to save her brother, thats a great unique plot kids will love.
My first book by this author and I was confused why he'd need a "Rick Riordan presents" on the cover. I still don't know. But Rick Riordan has character art and more insight on his website so maybe he's writing in the universe of the thousand worlds?
We follow year-old Min as she is told that her older brother has deserted the military. To clear his name and possibly save him, she embarks on a journey all alone.

Apparently, it all has to do with the mythical Dragon Pearl that can supposedly terraform an entire planet within only a few hours or destroy it.
Naturally, since the rumours of the pearl have spread, several groups of people are on the hunt for it, making Min's quest all the more dangerous.
As if a cursed planet full of ghosts wasn't dangerous enough already. I should mention that this isn't just a scifi story about humanity being scattered amongst a thousand worlds.
And yes, Min is one such magic creature. In fact, she is a fox spirit who can change into all kinds of things and "charm" people to influence their feelings and to some extent thoughts.
Ancient artifacts, intrigues, gambling parlors, spaceships, a blend of Asian folklore and science fiction.
But there is also prejudice and discrimination, the annoyance of a big family and chores, friendship and inevitable betrayal. Even gender issues, but so subtly realized, it was barely noticeable, perfectly normal, as it should be and yet addressed to show how to handle the issue of how one wishes to be called correctly.
Thus, quite a lot was packed into this story that was definitely written for younger readers. But while it is clear that the story was written for children and young teens younger than the typical YA crowd , it is still very well written, the adventure sweeps you along and you simply have a good time.

I just couldn't! Check out more reviews Perspective of a Writer To keep the family safe, 13 year old Mins mother insists that none of them use any fox-magic, such as Charm or shape-shifting.

When word arrives that Jun is suspected of leaving his post to go in Check out more reviews Perspective of a Writer The short review I see dragons and my eyes gain hearts and I can't help but want to read the book I have to say that I ended up really enjoying Dragon Pearl especially because of all the Korean tidbits woven into the story because as a k-drama fan I already knew about most of them so it was like finding the best easter eggs!!
That said I didn't quite enjoy the book as much as Rick Riordan explains he did in his introduction in the book and on goodreads.
Yes, it has a monster amount of adventure woven through out and Min sure is a plucky heroine that makes you want to root for her, even when she's lying.
It's just everything happened so easily There was only one moment in all the book where I thought "oh no, she's not going to get away with her shenanigans this time!
Reality isn't the point here, having a fun adventure is and Yoon Ha Lee does take us on a wild ride with all sorts of magical and sci-fi goodies to ooh and aww over!
I like that her fox spirit is embodied on the cover as a clue as to what the book is about And you can certainly tell that its about space.
It doesn't really give you the sense of adventure that is in the book though which feels to me like a missed opportunity.
This is especially so since this is a middle grade book and not a young adult novel as the cover gives the sense that the protagonist is a lot older than she is.
Why did I enjoy Dragon Pearl even though it's certainly a middle grade book? The fox magic is really neat, not only can Min shape shift but she can use charm.
She doesn't use it often at home so its not until she's out and about that she really understands all she can do charming others.
But don't worry she gets it quickly. The foxes have the worst reputation, but the best thing is that they are in like company!
The other races all have their own qualities and we get to meet the other three supernatural beings up close and personal.
The friendship Min finds is really quite realistic too. Min is who Min is partially due to her relationship with Jun.
She wants to see other worlds because jun inspired her to want to join him. They spent a lot of time star gazing and bonding over these dreams and ambitions.
This was quite a powerful relationship with an ending to match! This was really a fun part of the story because its so unexpected It certainly was a strength in Dragon Pearl.
The ghost makes the entire middle of the story super fun. I really loved how mechanically inclined Min was and how it came up in the story as she served in the Space Forces.
Really the entire story on the ship was quite fun as she delves into the mystery of why her brother went missing. As a Writer Min is a character that I had to learn to love.
She is quite flawed in the beginning, acting impetuously and rather stupidly making assumptions without listening to the facts. That maybe could be fine, but she was quite the liar lying whenever it suited her.
Even as an adult I started to get really fed up with it plus added to that she burned bridges so fast! Really she set herself up ad never being able to go home and not thinking about that fact.
It was all such a contrived beginning that I really worried at first. Once we left Min's planet Dragon Pearl really took off and became a fun adventure.
Dragon Pearl is a grand adventure, perfect for middle grade readers who crave a story that a young adult could love. Told with Korean Mythology in the background we get a wonderful cultural experience that widens readers horizons.
Rick Riordan has added another fun read to his bookshelf for kids! It has not influenced my opinions. See my special perspective at the bottom of my reviews under the typewriter Please like this review if you enjoyed it!
I liked this fast-paced story a lot. When Kim Min, young fox spirit, hears that her older brother is suspected of deserting from his Space Forces post in a quest to find the Dragon Pearl, she accidentally knocks the Investigator who brought the news unconscious and decides she has to find her brother.
Now, if I'd just done that to someone, I don't think I'd be thinking of leaving the planet, but it's a great start to this story. Min, after tricking her way onto a ship and getting injured in a I liked this fast-paced story a lot.
Min, after tricking her way onto a ship and getting injured in a space battle, ends up masquerading as a cadet on her brother's former ship.
Though Min is two years younger than the other cadets, she immerses herself in the rules and regulations to minimize bringing attention to herself so she can snoop for news about her brother and the Dragon Pearl, a hotly sought-after artifact that can terraform planets.
I loved the way Yoon Ha Lee kept the action moving along nicely, with quick scenes showing Min's intelligence and cleverness, and at the same time her impulsivity and quick-thinking.
I really liked the way characters of a variety of genders populated this story. I also loved the way Korean myths' and folk tales' creatures are part of this universe, with the author's decision to make a fox spirit the central character.
I thought that was a wonderful choice, as fox spirits are so mistrusted that Min and her whole family have done their best to hide their amazing abilities.
Min relies heavily on these abilities to get herself both in and out of trouble. What I particularly loved was how Yoon Ha Lee transforms Min from the totally impulsive and self-centred girl she is at the beginning of the book, to a more mature and thoughtful person by the end.
And with the book's open ending, I really, really hope we get to spend more time with this great character. Loved this! I thought this was such a delightful and fun space adventure.
Can't wait to read Lee's adult SFF books now. She runs away from home to try and find her brother, who has been accused of being a deserter.
It's also a story about friendship, trust, and using immense power for good. Jun 30, Sofia Generali rated it liked it Shelves: books-i-own , fantasy , science-fiction , rick-riordan-presents.
Aaaand halfway through it lost almost all my attention. I'm disappointed. The book started out with such an interesting backdrop, with a girl named Min who was part of a fox family, who went in search of her missing brother.
And it turned into endless pages of Min disguised on a spaceship carrying out menial duties and charming everyone in sight. Thus far I've been disappointed by both this and Aru Shah, and it's not 3.
Thus far I've been disappointed by both this and Aru Shah, and it's not given me much hope for other books under Rick Riordan Presents. But because I love him so, I'm willing to keep trying until I find one that wows me.
This, sadly, was not it. Okay so I had a friend read this and she didn't end up loving it even though she was so hyped for it. I freaking loved this!
I think it dragged and I felt bored a few times also could have done with a bit more world building but the characters were solid I adore Min so much and the mystery kept me guessing.

Unfortunately, Mr. Shan was killed at the krayt's claws, leaving only his data holocron behind. Although it could easily bring him a hundred thousand credits, the pearl was soon confiscated from Pers by an ISB agent.
The hunter Doallyn retrieved five pearls from a krayt dragon he killed while escorting Yarna d'al' Gargan across the Tatooine desert after the death of Jabba Desilijic Tiure.
CC "Bly" wielded two DC pistols whose handles were made of krayt dragon pearls. There is little 3D to it, but it feels high def and very smooth.
The symbols have the excellent quality of being detailed without being busy, and care was taken in making sure the gold and red colour scheme did not come off as too tacky.
The music is sufficiently ambient and varied that the constant looping of it will not drive you insane as some slot music can. This music is accompanied by a very simple sound design that is effective, but almost invisible.
Although there is no gamble feature, there are a series of interesting bonuses outlined below. Three or more Scatter symbols anywhere on the reels will trigger a free spin bonus as well as paying out a prize.
The Free Spin bonus nets you 8 free spins. You can then win a further 8 spins if you hit another three Scatters during the spins.
During the Free Spins the low value Ace to Nine symbols are removed from the game. Six or more Pearls will trigger the Bonus game.
Any Pearls you hit in the Bonus game and the trigger spin are locked in place. You start with three spins on the counter, and the counter resets to three every time you hit a Pearl.
Every Pearl has a random number or word on it. At the end of the Bonus the numbers are added up to make up your payout.
If a Pearl has the word Mini or Major on it, you win the corresponding jackpot. If you fill up the entire set of reels with Pearls, you win the Grand Jackpot.
The return to player of this game is not provided by the publisher. This is somewhat concerning, and we rarely recommend a slot if the return to player is not clear.
This is a little tighter than some, but should still cover all by the very lowest and highest of bankrolls. The volatility of this game is medium to high.
