Summary

"Emily Woo Zeller offers an exciting narration of this sapphic TREASURE ISLAND retelling with Asian characters." -Audiofile Magazine

This program features an author's note, read by the author

Two intrepid girls hunt for a legendary treasure on the deadly high seas in this YA remix of the classic adventure novel Treasure Island.

1826. The sun is setting on the golden age of piracy, and the legendary Dragon Fleet, the scourge of the South China Sea, is no more. Its ruthless leader, a woman known only as the Head of the Dragon, is now only a story, like the ones Xiang has grown up with all her life. She desperately wants to prove her worth, especially to her mother, a shrewd businesswoman who never seems to have enough time for Xiang. Her father is also only a story, dead at sea before Xiang was born. Her single memento of him is a pendant she always wears, a simple but plain piece of gold jewelry.

But the pendant's true nature is revealed when a mysterious girl named Anh steals it, only to return it to Xiang in exchange for her help in decoding the tiny map scroll hidden inside. The revelation that Xiang's father sailed with the Dragon Fleet and tucked away this secret changes everything. Rumor has it that the legendary Head of the Dragon had one last treasure—the plunder of a thousand ports—that for decades has only been a myth, a fool's journey.

Xiang is convinced this map could lead to the fabled treasure. Captivated with the thrill of adventure, she joins Anh and her motley crew off in pursuit of the island. But the girls soon find that the sea—and especially those who sail it—are far more dangerous than the legends led them to believe.

Wonderful story

C.B. Lee is a wonderful story teller who does not shy away from difficult topics but always tackles them with consideration. This retelling of Treasure Island brought a whole new life to the story and the sapphic romance is the best romance I have read in a YA setting. Emily Woo Zeller is one of my favourite narrator. She conveys each character's personality with a lot of talent and life. It was a truly amazing adventure.

I am stunned

Reading the original treasure island was cool, this was incredible. Every step each character took had me on the edge of my seat. I cried and cheered and honestly wished I could be part of the crew.

It’s about the journey not the destination

This book brakes the white Narrative. It feels good to have a fresh new perspective on the world at large. This beautiful book brings you flavor that I could taste an incredible audience that’s overwhelming and consuming. Embrace the journey and forget the rules.

I LOVED IT

No words can describe how much I loved and enjoyed A Clash of Steel. I loved the adventure, the relationship between Anh and Xiang, the beautiful prose and Zeller's narration that pulled me into that world and made me a part of it. This audiobook has been an amazing experience <33
