Author and narrator Yangsze Choo presents Malaysia during its colonial era. Ji Lin and her stepbrother, Shin, both speak with a trace of a British colonial accent. Ji Lin's voice comes through softly and silkily, sounding subservient in tone, unlike Shin's huskier, stronger, more educated voice. The two are in love, and Ji Lin has another secret as well. It's a container with a finger in it, which intertwines with 11-year-old Ren's mission to find his master's missing finger. For Ren, Choo uses a high, childlike voice that has a touch of innocence. Both Ji Lin and Ren encounter mystery and magic, including men turning into tigers. This audiobook is not your usual historical novel.
