Min's quiet, boring little life on a backwater planet is thrown into chaos when her family receives word that her older brother, Jun, has deserted from the Space Forces. But Min's family has a secret - they're gumiho, fox spirits, and most people don't think too kindly on the tricksters (if they even believe that they still exist). Min must take the risk of going after him and using all the magic at her disposal to save him and clear his name. Dragon Pearl is a intricate, rollicking tale of a girl trying to find her way in a big universe. Filled with a clever blend of science fiction and Korean mythology, it's a delight from beginning to end! - Kylie
