Oh gosh, watching the 2020 Disney remake is what finally took this off my TBR pile and I'll tell y'all, save yourselves the $30 and read this instead. It's an #ownvoices read that feels authentic to the characters and themes of the original 1998 film, but with added Chinese mythology.

Reflection starts off with the Huns bearing down on the troops in the Tung-Shao Pass, but instead of Mulan getting injured, Shang takes the hit. He's dying, but China needs him so Mulan and the Li family guardian go to Diyu, the Chinese underworld to find his spirit and bring him back. I really liked a point where Mulan had to find Fa ancestors and whoops that's definitely a way to call into question Ping's identity.

Similarities to the 2020 remake:
-a lady enchanter
-Mulan considering who her "true" self is

Things Reflection does better:
-lady enchanter is a worthwhile opponent who goes on to do whatever she wants to do
-soldier camaraderie on screen, can differentiate characters
-actual Chinese mythology and values, as written by an author of Chinese descent
-references to the source material that don't feel shoehorned.
-Mulan ties her hair back when she needs to
-Mulan's strength is her cleverness, not magical qi.

I don't know if I would've rated this as high had I read it before the movie, but I still liked it plenty! ( )

* I would give this book for review 3.5*

I found this to a fun take on the MULAN myth and really liked the question it tackled. This book had two very strong elements escaping the underworld with a lot of fighting and also a self exportation for Mulan about who she really is. I was more captivated by the second half of the book but did sometimes zone out in the battle scenes. But i did like how the underworld was used as setting, this was not my favorite read but one I did enjoy. ( )

Am Anfang hatte ich Schwierigkeiten in das Buch rein zu finde. Das Buch entwickelt jedoch einen ganz besonderen Charm und durch die Einbindung der chinesischen Kultur und Religion bekommt das Buch einen einzigartigen und interessanten Charakter. Eines der Bücher, dass ich kaum aus der Hand legen konnte. ( )
