Master Li and Number 10 Ox #2

My rating: 3 of 5 stars

 

As wonderful as the first book was, this was a bit of a let down. I certainly enjoyed the read, it just didn’t pack quite the same punch as Bridge of Birds.

Li and Ox have to deal with a long dead sadist prince. In the process they find some “kind of lost” souls, go through the 10 layers of chinese hell, do their typical wenching and eating thing, and finish things up nice and neat.
