Daughter of Xanadu was an interesting book with a fairly original storyline and characters. Emmajin was very different from other girls of her age and rank, girls only concerned with marriage. This well-written book captured Emmajin's concerns and drew the reader into the story with its dialogue. While slow at times, the unusual plot keeps the reader going. Most readers will relate to Emmajin's character due to her strong will and ambition. It was very interesting to read about the Mongol Empire. This is a great novel for fans of historical fiction.
