Jade Tiger - Jenn Reese
Jade Tiger is a novel that looks back on a group known as the Jade Circle. This was a group of women martial arts experts in China who gained their strength and focus from a group of five jade figurines. The Jade Circle was destroyed when the heroine of this tale, Shan Westfall, was a young girl and her mother was a master of the Jade Circle. Shan escaped with her father and the jade tiger figurine to America. Her mother didn't make it. Shan's goal is to recover the other four figurines and unite the circle again. To do this she enlists the help of an archeoligist who has the jade crane. I really like this novel. It was hard to put down. Highly recommended.
