A Daoist journey through New York and Beijing

Lai Fang, a Chinese native living in New York, is working to recover her lost memory and find her father. Along the way, she finds herself in the arms of the mysterious Suresh who supports her search in unconventional ways.

Guided by a Luopan, scattered remnants of recollections, technology, and a little magic, Lai Fang desperately clings to what she hopes will be the path to her truth. However, what if the truth lies far beyond the scope of human comprehension? What is the truth to begin with?

The Glint of the Luopan weaves a mesmerizing web of a world that begins as a dream and unfolds in a journey for family, hope, and love.

Author's Notes

Portals that can be travelled through with the help of a Luopan, a society of dreamers, and cities in the sky – when Chinese native Lai Fang meets the mysterious Suresh, she doesn't know that this is the starting point of a journey into a world of Chinese magic. Having lost a big part of her memory due to a supposed accident, only one thing is on her mind: finding her dad and reconnecting with her past. While Suresh wants to help her at first, he is not really what he seems – and Lai Fang has to escape from New York. She winds up in Beijing, the place where all her dad's clues lead and where his past lies. Luckily, the Dreamer Society, who is responsible for the cities in the sky – cities made of dreams that house a part of the Chinese population due to the growing overpopulation – supports her in her quest. Or is Lai Fang just being fooled again? And will Suresh just give up without a fight?
