She who became the sun / Shelley Parker-Chan.


In 1345, China lies under harsh Mongol rule. When the Zhu family's eighth-born son, Zhu Chongba, is given a fate of greatness, everyone is mystified as to how it will come to pass. But when a bandit attacks the family, Zhu Chongba succumbs to despair and dies. Desperate to escape her own fated death, Zhu's sister uses her brother's identity to enter a monastery as a young male novice. After her sanctuary is destroyed for supporting the rebellion against Mongol rule, Zhu takes the chance to claim another future altogether: her brother's abandoned greatness.
