Although this is a light and cute manga there is mention of Kidnapping, forced servitude/indentured servitude, poisoning, death, and attempted murder.
Once again I am left in awe of Maomao’s botanical knowledge and ability to think fast in any situation. We didn’t get many interactions with Jinshi in this book, as we have in the last two, but what little we got was entertaining and left some breadcrumbs I feel will be explained soon.
The only thing that makes me sad is the fact that I can only read books 4 and 5…as 6 doesn’t come out in America until September. Currently, in Japan, the series has ten books out and is listed as ongoing so I’m not sure just how long the series will end up being.
I look forward to reading more on Maomao and the inner circle, and workings, of the palace. Who knows what other adventures and mysteries Maomao will stumble into.
