Le Grange blends riveting action and clever schemes with a dash of Chinese history and mythology in Butterfly Hill and the result is a thrill ride from start to finish. Hiko displays amazing, yet believable skills as the pursuit of his goal leads him through a series of ancient shrines filled with Indiana Jones style traps. The tension ramps up as the secret society guarding these shrines becomes aware of the threat and all parties now face two enemies rather than one as they pursue each other across Lantau Island. Le Grange’s characters are convincing, each being imbued with personality quirks and flaws that cause both conflict and hilarity within Butterfly Hill. In-chapter POV changes are a little jarring, but easily overlooked on the whole. Unpredictable twists will have reader's jaws dropping right up to the last page as Butterfly Hill races to a thrilling climax.
