Kohei Fujiwara is frequented by a memory from his past – his cherished grandfather smiling up at an enormous ryū. Those dragons disappeared from Japan after World War II and all that remains are their smaller cousins, no bigger than your hand. Kohei desperately yearns to go on a mission to find the big ryū and bring it home, where it can make his ill grandfather smile like that again. The Lost Ryū is an action-packed fantasy that honors multigenerational pain and the boundlessness of love.

Emi Watanabe Cohen wrote her first novel when she was 12 years old — the most complete draft she can find clocks in at 234,780 words! Her more recent work involves Jewish and/or Japanese folklore, complicated families, and a dash of improbable magic. She is a graduate of Brandeis University, where she studied Creative Writing. The Lost Ryū is her debut novel.

Van Hoang is the author of Girl Giant and the Monkey King, Girl Giant and the Jade War, and the forthcoming Hidden Tails. She earned her bachelor’s in English at the University of New Mexico and her master’s in library information science at San Jose State University. She was born in Vietnam, grew in up Orange County, California, and now resides in Los Angeles with her husband, kid, and dog.
