Sue Lynn Tan writes fantasy inspired by the myths and legends she fell in love with as a child. Born in Malaysia, she studied in London and France, before settling in Hong Kong with her family. Her love for stories began with a gift from her father, a compilation of fairytales from around the world, and she spent much of her childhood lost in magical worlds. When not writing or reading, she can be found exploring the hills, lakes and temples around her home.

Reviews for Tales of the Celestial Kingdom

"“Epic, romantic, and enthralling from start to finish.” Stephanie Garber, #1 NYT bestselling author of the Caraval series “This vivid, unputdownable debut effortlessly whisks us into the celestial realms of Chinese high fantasy. Tan magnificently conjures the romantic yet dangerous dazzle of this immortal world, but never loses track of the shining human heart of her tale. A captivating treat for lovers of Chinese fantasy dramas and newcomers alike.” ¯Shelley Parker-Chan, bestselling author of She Who Became the Sun “A lush, dreamy gem of a novel.” ¯Shannon Chakraborty, bestselling author of The City of Brass ""A stirring romantic fantasy set in a richly realised world inspired by Chinese mythology. I loved it!” ¯Zen Cho, Bestselling author of Black Water Sister “Strikingly evocative, tense, and heartfelt, Daughter of the Moon Goddess … floats you into the Celestial Kingdom, introduces you to monsters both literal and figurative, and leaves you dreaming of dragons.” ¯Andrea Stewart, author of The Bone Shard Daughter “An absolutely delightful and enchanting read! Daughter of the Moon Goddess takes a beloved Chinese legend and reimagines it into a gorgeously-spun romantic fantasy. I can't wait for the sequel!” ¯Elizabeth Lim, New York Times bestselling author of Spin the Dawn “With all the beauty and heartbreak of a Chinese fantasy drama, Daughter of the Moon Goddess is an enchanting joy from start to finish.” ¯Tasha Suri, author of The Jasmine Throne “Prepare to be swept off your feet by this absolutely magical tale.” ¯Genevieve Gornichec, author of The Witch’s Heart "" I dare you not to be entranced by this magical book."" ¯ Ava Reid, author of The Wolf and the Woodsman"
