June Hur, critically acclaimed author of The Silence of Bones and The Forest of Stolen Girls, returns with The Red Palacea third evocative, atmospheric historical mystery perfect for fans of Courtney Summers and Kerri Maniscalco.
To enter the palace means to walk a path stained in blood...
Joseon (Korea), 1758. There are few options available to illegitimate daughters in the capital city, but through hard work and study, eighteen-year-old Hyeon has earned a position as a palace nurse. All she wants is to keep her head down, do a good job, and perhaps finally win her estranged father's approval.
But Hyeon is suddenly thrust into the dark and dangerous world of court politics when someone murders four women in a single night, and the prime suspect is Hyeon's closest friend and mentor. Determined to prove her beloved teacher's innocence, Hyeon launches her own secret investigation.
In her hunt for the truth, she encounters Eojin, a young police inspector also searching for the killer. When evidence begins to point to the Crown Prince himself as the murderer, Hyeon and Eojin must work together to search the darkest corners of the palace to uncover the deadly secrets behind the bloodshed.

The Red Palace by June Hur is a historical mystery set in 18th century Korea. It involves several murders and suspicions are directed to one of the highest members of the court, that of the Crown Prince. The main character is Hyeon, a young woman who works as a nurse at the Royal Palace and when her mentor is arrested for the murders, she vows to solve the case and prove her mentor innocent.

She soon finds herself joining forces with a new police inspector, Eojun. He is young, and seems to be as fully invested in finding out the truth as she is. Although they are breaking many of society’s rigid rules, they form a partnership and share the information that each is gathering. It soon becomes apparent that they have attracted the attention of the murderer and must tread carefully through the conspiracies and rules that keep the royal dynasty in power.

The Red Palace is well written and involving. While most of the characters are fictional, the Crown Prince was a real and tragic figure and his story and the historical details that the author supplies keep the story based in reality. The romance is kept to the back burner, we can see it developing but it never takes over the story. This was an excellent way to read about the history and the culture of Korea. ( )

A brisk, pleasant read. Despite the Korean setting, it feels very much like a standard Anglo-American mystery, particularly the male main character's attitude. My only complaint is the book lacked a glossary/pronunciation guide. ( )

June Hur is one of those authors for me that I will read anything she writes. I will say, her first book The Silence of Bones remains my favorite of the three she has written at this point, but I still have enjoyed her other two, including this one.

I really appreciated the sort of plot twist and mystery that was in her first book more I think. The plot of the second one held some interesting points as well as the relationship between the two sisters. I did think Hur did her first foray into romance in her books well here, it was not overpowering to the story as can often be the case. But at the same time, I didn’t get as well of a sense of character for the main character. The plot was also not as interesting to me as in the first two books and didn’t seem to connect quite as well. The reveal was a little lackluster.

But I did enjoy Hur’s writing style as usual, and some of the details brought in like the mention of damos again, and some of the laws and rules from the time period like that men had curfews but women did not and that a man should not touch a woman unless married to them, even in crime scene investigation.

I also always appreciate the historical notes Hur gives at the end of her books. They always provide really pertinent and interesting information on the time period and particular groups/people/places she is basing her story on. I had never heard of Crown Prince Sado before and his is certainly an interesting story. ( )

Another fascinating and nicely paced YA mystery from this incredibly talented author. I love well researched historical Asian novels. They are rich, beautiful and complex tales. Traditional Asian cultures are often driven by honour systems that I thoroughly enjoy learning about. This one is set in 18th century Korea and our main character is intelligent and loyal but constantly aware of her low standing in this very hierarchical society. June has a talent for writing relationships that the Reader can become fully invested in but all written with a delicacy that seems appropriate for this time period and culture. Back when a glance or gesture held so much meaning and had characters all a flutter. The courtly intrigue was also fascinating as people plotted and manoeuvred themselves to win favour. Well worth a read if you, like me, are a fan of Asian historical fiction.

Also, I spent ages on the Googs after as this story is based on a real Korean Crown Prince.

Lastly, the cover is stunning!

CW: bloody and violent murders ( )
  Mrs_Tapsell_Bookzone | Feb 14, 2023 |
Four women are brutally murdered within the confines of a nursing school in 18th century Korea. One of the teachers from the school is promptly--& wrongfully—arrested for the crime. Eighteen year old nurse, Hyeon, is a graduate of the school and currently works as a nurse in the royal palace. She knows her former teacher is innocent and sets out to investigate the crime to save her mentor from execution. Along the way, she joins forces with a young police inspector, Eojin, who is also determined to solve the savage murders in an attempt to find justice for his own murdered father. In order to uncover the true culprits, Hyeon and Eojin must fight against horrendously corrupt officials, a vicious royal bureaucracy, and a social system that victimizes the many and protects an elite few.

This book takes place against a very unpleasant backdrop full of utterly despicable characters. Everyone is jockeying to keep or advance their own positions of power while simultaneously attempting to overthrow their rivals—real or imagined. There are spies everywhere, and everyone is spying, managing a network of spies, being blackmailed into spying, or being spied upon. Everybody hates and/or is suspicious of everybody else. And everyone is afraid of being brutally murdered—either surreptitiously by shadowy criminals, or openly at the will of the royal family. Savagery and brutal oppression overwhelm the tone of The Red Palace.

Who doesn’t love a book in which everyone is miserable all of the time and under constant threat of heinous torture and death?

In spite of all of the violence and bloodshed (or maybe because of it), this is an incredibly dull and tedious read. I found myself dozing off numerous times while trying to get through to the end.

It might have been slightly better if Hyeon were a sympathetic character, but she is not. Her incessant insecurities were tiresome, and her obsession over her absentee, yet still abusive, father was implausible and downright nauseating. The superficial and highly clichéd romance concocted between Hyeon and Eojin only succeeded in making the story even more tedious and unpalatable. By the time I reached the end, I didn’t care whodunit or what happened to Hyeon; I was just happy the whole boring thing was over! ( )
