About the Book

Raised by her Traditional Chinese Medicine Practitioner Grandma in a shophouse off Chinatown, Lena Lau strives to be just like everyone else in Singapore. She is busy finishing her undergrad, drinking bubble tea with her friends and fantasizing about the handsome boy who lives next door. Unfortunately for Lena, she is not an average Singaporean student. She is the carrier of a forgotten ancient secret. A gift passed down through her lineage that can be used to heal the sick. For years, Lena was able to ignore the power growing at the edge of her subconscious, aware that it was a curse as much as a gift. Lena is forced to use her gift when her best friend suffers a medical emergency, unleashing her power into the world. She is quick to discover her power is not what she believed and Lena must navigate a treacherous path where old enemies of the bloodline lie in wait to control her. Set in the vibrant city state of Singapore, Lena Lau’s struggle to survive is entangled with the black market Chinese medicine trade and the elite of Asia who control everything in the glittering city.
