‘Water in the Western Sky’ By Erica Chung

Twenty-seven year old Changli has spent most of her life answering to the oppressive and exploitative Jonggu government. One catastrophic tsunami later, Changli is swept into the celestial land of her home country and her life overturned as she meets guardians of the earth and heavens intent on helping her avenge her country’s destruction. In an epic adventure, Changli must face her invisible oppressors, conquer inner demons, and learn to open her heart to reclaim her home of Neiwan.
