What if Mulan had to travel to the Underworld?When Captain Shang is mortally wounded by Shan Yu in battle, Mulan must travel to the Underworld, Diyu, in order to save him from certain death. But King Yama, the ruler of Diyu, is not willing to give Shang up easily. With the help of Shang's great lion guardian ShiShi, Mulan must traverse Diyu to find Shang's spirit, face harrowing obstacles, and leave by sunrise--or become King Yama's prisoner forever. Moreover, Mulan is still disguised as the soldier called Ping, wrestling with the decision to reveal her true identity to her closest friend. Will Mulan be able to save Shang before it's too late? Will he ever be able to trust her again? Or will she lose him--and be lost in the Underworld--forever?...

Reflection (Twisted Tales #4) Reviews
Okay, this book was so much h better than the first three. I don't know why but it really was. I found myself not being able to put the book down, which happens a lot, but not to this extreme. I loved how the story center together to form this new story that could have easily been the movie. Elizabeth Lim put together a story that just from reading about it would not be promising, but I was proved wrong. Very wrong.
I didn't finish this one. I tried, but ultimately felt disconnected and bored. I guess I won't be reviewing it considering there's not much to say about it \_(ツ)_/ ...more
THIS WAS FREAKING AMAZING why aren’t there more 5 star ratings?
I actually bought the hardback copy of Reflection to add it along to my fairy tales books collection. I liked the Beauty and the Beast retelling and the Aladdin retelling but those two books didn't compare to this one.
I liked Elizabeth Lim's style. She gave us the story that we all knew and twisted it into a world that reminded me very much of Hercules, minus the characters from the Hercules movie. Mulan and Hercules were not my favorite Disney movies. I appreciated Mulan when I was a kid, but B ...more
I loved this book. The story was captivating and the writing good. The author stayed true to Mulans' story while giving it her own unique spin. My time reading this book was well spent and I would highly recommend it to anyone who loves retellings of well known Tales.
I read this in two sittings I seriously couldn't put it down. Mulan is my favorite Disney movie, and this book does the story justice. Not only is there a kick butt strong female character, but the writing is so cinematic I just fell in love. Mulan is such a good narrator and really has a lot of internal struggles that weren't present in the movie. Also Shang is so precious, and the new characters in this book were fantastic. Especially ShiShi
a wild ride from start to finish. loved the incorporation of Chinese mythology, and the familiarity of some of the allusions really made it more enjoyable because I could guess certain things based on foreshadowing and then feel the triumph of being right😂😂😂
this book does a combination of paying tribute to the movie and creating something original that explores Mulan's character in greater depth. as the title suggests, it's a journey of self discovery that forces Mulan to confront her own inner ...more
"All of life is a dream walking, all of death is a going home."
So I liked this one a lot more than the previous two Twisted Tale novels (Once Upon a Dream and As Old As Time). It's more on par with A Whole New World. I like this one because it's not so much as a twist (as in "what if Jafar found the lamp first?) but a more conclusive 'what if' situation. A different version of how Shang finds out Mulan is a female. I like this version because there's more mythology and adventure, and you get to ...more
