Into the Riverlands
Nghi Vo is an elegant and poignant storyteller, and Into the Riverlands is no different. It continues the story of cleric Chih and their talking bird Almost Brilliant as they record stories of famed martial artists in the treacherous riverlands region. As you meet each character on the journey, including elder Lao Bingyi who commands a room and Wei Jintai, a trained fighter who doesn’t break a sweat, you meet their quirks. Vo crafts a world that slowly reveals itself with humor and heartbreak, weaving together into a fine cloth. The story is both suspenseful and languid, and it will soften your heart.
