With the help of powerful new friends Koi defeated her dragon enemy in Portland. Now, no longer able to deny her dream-eating powers or the real reason for her father’s mental decline, she flies to Tokyo with her new Kitsune love, Ken, and the trickster Kwaskwi, seeking answers. But secrets from Ken’s past and Kind politics threaten to unravel their newfound trust and someone in Tokyo is desperate to kidnap a Baku. Koi must untangle a long history of pain and deceit in order to save her father, an imprisoned dragon, and herself.
What Early Readers Are Saying
"Koi’s wry insights are entertaining as she uncovers the truth about why her father left Japan and struggles with the realization that her crush, Ken, might not be as trustworthy as she thought…This is a fun urban fantasy with a superb, authentically teenage heroine."
"BLACK PEARL DREAMING is a worthy successor to DREAM EATER. Lincoln's atmospheric prose shines in this book. Koi’s growth through her relationships both romantic and familial, and the blend of history with fantasy, held me captive to the end. I am eagerly awaiting the next installment in Koi’s story."
—Nicolette Andrews, author of The Priestess and the Dragon and Kitsune: A Little Mermaid Retelling
"I loved the vivid imagery and how myth and magic are woven into an updated, modern setting. With kitsunes, dragons, and dream eaters, this made for a unique and entertaining tale that gripped me from the beginning…The story isn't over yet, and I'm excited to see what happens next."
—Alesha Escobar, Director of Creative Alchemy and author of The Diviners, The Grey Towers, and Aria Knight Chronicles
