Here’s what I received:

1.  The Demon Who Peddled Longing by Khanh Ha for review in November with Virtual Author Book Tours.

Set in post-war Vietnam, The Demon Who Peddled Longing tells the terrible journey of a nineteen-year-old boy in search of the two brothers who are drifters and who raped and killed his cousin also his girl. It brings
together the damned, the unfit, the brave, who succumb by their own doing to the call of fate. Yet their desire to survive and to face life again never dies, so that when someone like the boy who is psychologically damaged by his family tragedy, who no sooner gets his life together after being rescued by a fisherwoman than falls in love with an untouchable girl and finds his life in peril, takes his leave in the end, there is nothing left but a longing in the heart that goes with him.

What did you receive?

    I’ll bet the story is very emotional. Might write the title down.

    Sounds like an intense read and I’m intrigued! Looking forward to your review.

  • Alison Flores

    That sounds like one angst filled book!

    • It does…but I like those.

      • Alison Flores

        Me, too! I’m only disappointed when the outcome doesn’t live up to the angst. I don’t like a big build up to just fall flat. I’ll be curious to see your review on this one!
