Prince Jin and his companions face new adventures, new dangers, and more mythical beasts in this thrilling sequel to Creatures of the In Between, perfect for fans of Princess Mononoke and How to Train Your Dragon and featuring an immersive blend of East and Southeast Asian mythology.

Young Emperor Jin has had his hands full ever since the Dowager Empress—Jin’s own grandmother—fled and he took on the Trident Scepter of the Three Realms.Though he has his trusted friends Masa and Mau by his side, and his kirin and piyao companion beasts to help him, his rule has been far from peaceful. Strange new monsters are storming the countryside, wreaking havoc on the farms that feed the entire empire.When one of the twins goes missing while trying to help control the divine creatures, Jin realizes they must go to the source of the troubles: the place from which all monsters originate, a primordial forest around a sacred five-peaked mountain.But as Jin and his friends make their way toward the enchanted forest, located in an unclaimed no-man's-land beyond the borders of the empire, Jin realizes that all is not as it seems. The enemy that waits for him there is not who he expected—and that’s just the beginning.Fans of Dragon Pearl and When the Sea Turned to Silver will thrill at this next step of Jin’s action-packed journey, as he faces greater odds than ever before with his friends by his side.
