Mulan: Before the Sword

When a prophecy says that a girl will grow up to save the Emperor — a daughter of the Hua family — Daji, the White Fox demon poisons the poised and perfect Xiu.... and her younger sister, Mulan, sets out on a quest to save her. She seeks help from the healer in the next village, only to learn that the healer is actually the Jade Rabbit, who has also been poisoned by Daji. If Mulan can find the antidote before the New Moon, she can save them both — but Daji and his minions are close on her heels. As Mulan faces danger from enemies and her own self-doubts, she also learns the value of her outspoken, spirited nature.

New York Times bestselling author Grace Lin pens this novel filled with adventure and wonder set before the upcoming Walt Disney Studios Mulan film.

"As the Rabbit and his powers grow weaker by the hour, Mulan constantly battles her insecurities regarding her own identity and abilities vis-à-vis her expected traditional role in society. Daji also pays her visits, laying temptations and traps with the help of Red Fox, her accomplice. As usual, Lin artfully develops captivating characters with rich histories. Traditional tales are interspersed throughout the tightly written narrative to gradually reveal a complex web of legends and adventure that seamlessly blend together into one alluring saga." — Kirkus Reviews
