Review of The Wishbird in Good Reading Magazine

“When the paths of the two young people intersect, Boy bravely chooses to help the girl. Can they, together, hold off the barbarian hordes and overcome the darkness that has consumed the city? After all, even with Oriole’s magic, they are only children and the enemy is great. Award-winning Gabrielle Wang has the brilliant ability to write new legends. The Wishbird has the flavour of ancient Chinese tales but with a freshness and beauty that will delight modern Western readers. The idea that a song in the heart can drive away dark shadows is not new, but Ms Wang gives it new depths?”
