ABOUT THIS BOOK
Meet the shapeshifting dragons of Hong Kong. Adept at passing for human, they are charming, sophisticated, glamorous, outrageously wealthy—and utterly ruthless in their control of corporate society.
Nothing, it seems, can challenge their privileged lives—until one of them is fostered by humans.
Born with dragon power, tainted by human emotion, the Gold-Jade Dragon is trouble. His rogue powers of coercion, augmented by the reach of social media, will threaten the whole dragon dynasty. And the dynasty will fight back...

A real page-turner of a book!!
Very very good book, neat writing and a page turner of a book with me really wanting to know what came next. I can't say I cheered on either side as both are cruel and kind of creepy doing things as they own seems fit but can't help feel a bit sad for the clash between the two fractions. True the whole book I felt a bit at uneasy when Long Wei's turn that violence can erupt at any point so good of Janenn to keep me on the toes most of the time. I'm happy that i bought it but wish there would be more of this world!!
