Review: The Terracotta Bride by Zen Cho.

This book is #14 on my Book Riot Read Harder Challenge list: read a book by an author from South East Asia.

This novella was absolutely fascinating. It takes place in hell where the inhabiting spirits are all attempting to avoid the interest of the bureaucratic demons whose task it is to reincarnate them. For such a short story the descriptions and sense of an entirely different culture are put across so well that I’m really excited to read more by this author. I thought it was incredibly well written and a great little story.

Score: 8/10
