The forces of Hell are poised to strike ... When Emma's relatives come to visit her, they are totally freaked out by what they learn ... Emma's beloved, John Chen, is a 3000 year old Chinese god. Not only that, John is becoming weaker by the day. Demons pursue him relentlessly, hoping to use Emma, and his child, Simone, as bargaining tools against him. Emma battles to defend Simone as John's energy is drained by the effort of both living in the mortal world and protecting them. While Emma is nagged by doubts about her own nature, she must find the courage to go on.

‘Blue Dragon’ is the third instalment of the Dark Heavens series by Kylie Chan. ‘White Dragon’ starts with Emma Donahoe taking on the job of full-time nanny to Simone, a special little girl. Emma realises just how special Simone is when she realises that Simone’s father is none other than Xuan Tian Shang Di - the Black Turtle of the North, the North Wind. Her first encounters with demons and gods leave her realising her world is not as safe as she once thought. The dangers escalate in ‘Red Phoenix’ as Xuan Wu’s powers fade and the demons attack. In ‘Blue Dragon’, Emma is now the acknowledged love of John Wu’s life and is a much desired target for demons.
By turns witty and sarcastic, there is also a great depth of heartache that runs through this story of love that cannot be due to John’s god status and Emma being a mortal. In the end, love does triumph but not without exacting a heavy penalty. The story for John and Emma does not appear to be finished here and I cannot wait to find out what fate has in store for them.
For those who enjoy Juliet Marillier’s ‘Sevenwaters’ trilogy, this may interest you. The pantheon is Chinese but there are many similar themes.
