A slave. A spy. A promise.

Joseon Dynasty, Korea: A humid summer storm rages across the Pavilion, the greatest entertainment house in the sprawling city of Hanyang. Within its stifling walls a gisaeng slave girl hides a fugitive in her bed, unexpectedly saving the life of a young man who is not all he seems.

Immediately Seorin is thrust into a razor-edged world of conspiracy and spies, doomed rebellion and murky intrigue. For the first time in years, she glimpses an opportunity for change.

Yet it is not her freedom Seorin so desperately desires, but something far more precious. She will risk anything, even death, to gain it.

A dark and romantic historical adventure set in old Korea.

After recently reading and loving A Song for Lonely Wolves by Lee Evie I was super excited to read her other novel, Promise Season, and it was just as wonderful as the first!

As with her other novel, Promise Season is set in the Joseon dynasty of Old Korea. Seorin is a gisaeng, a trained musician who serves men from the noble class. She lives at the Pavilion with other women like her when one stormy evening a strange man appears in her room begging her to help hide him from the men that are looking for him. She sees the fear in his eyes and agrees to help him. He asks her to hide an item for him and he will send someone later to get it from her. When they meet again the stranger asks for her help even further and to help spy for him, and in return, he will give her what she craves most...the assurance that he will find her long lost sister and help her.

I absolutely loved Seorin! She was brave and clever and craved life. The danger involved in her quest only served to excite her more. She was finally out of the Pavillion and had some excitement in her life.

I am now a huge fan of Lee Evie and I'm so glad that I am learning more about history in Old Korea.

This is the first book in the series and I am eagerly awaiting the next installment! Highly recommended!
