Good Reads from Brilliant Books: ‘The Order of the Pure Moon Reflected in Water’ by Zen Cho
One day, two bandits and a nun meet each other at a bar. Sounds like the beginning of a really bad dad joke, but it’s the start of a very exciting and adventurous tale. The Order of the Pure Moon Reflected in Water by Zen Cho takes place in an alternate world in which a ‘silent war’ has taken over a China-like land. Bandits run all over the country, stealing anything they can find… including ancient artifacts. The book opens with 2 traveling bandits, who attempt to solve an argument turned bar fight, that happened to be all started by a bald nun. From that moment on, the nun joins up with the team of thieves, and the story becomes ‘magical’ from there.
Overall, the book flows well from page to page as the gang travels from town to town, but the dialogue can feel like it rambles on at times. The chapters’ action sequences are very detailed allowing the reader to imagine the scene.
The Order of the Pure Moon Reflected in Water by Zen Cho is not only a good read, but it is also an excellent audiobook. Available on multiple devices and apps like Audible, the title is read by audiobook veteran, Nancy Wu who brilliant voices both female and male characters with versatility and ease.
