OMG this book is amazing. It’s an adult military fantasy and I didn’t expect to love it this much. I started reading it last month but slowed down as I got closer to the end because I didn’t want it to end. The sequel is coming out 2019, I can’t wait that long 😭. I know it’s weird but when I really, really like a book I read it slowly to prolong the experience because I don’t want it to end and I’ve also been busy with work so yeah. This book has a lot of violence and war crimes and other triggers though so it’s not an easy read. Full review to come as soon as I’m done with a list of the trigger warnings of course.
A powerful epic fantasy novel with roots in the 20th-century history of China.
Opium runs through the heart of the Nikara Empire, a constant reminder of the war with the Federation of Mugen that brought it to the empire’s shores. A war that only ended thanks to three heroes – the Vipress, the Dragon Emperor and the Gatekeeper – known as the Trifecta. They were legendary figures, each bestowed with god-like powers, who united the warlords of the Empire against the Federation.
Decades have passed. The Trifecta is shattered; the Dragon Emperor is dead, the Gatekeeper is missing, and the Vipress alone sits on the throne at Sinegard. Peace reigns, yet the poppy remains.
War orphan Fang Runin grew up with it. Her adopted family smuggles it throughout the Rooster province, making a living on the misfortune of those addicted to its smoke. But when Rin’s parents force her into an arranged marriage, Rin refuses to accept her fate and fights her way to the prestigious military academy at Sinegard.
There she will learn of drug-fuelled shamanic powers thought to be myth, powers which might defeat the Federation during its third invasion. But the cost of some power is too great to pay, even if it means winning a war that threatens to destroy an entire nation.
JUST FINISHED READING
A WRINKLE IN TIME
Finally read this book and I enjoyed it. It’s a children and young adult book but I feel some of the scientific jargon in the book might confuse kids. That’s just me though. I’m definitely going to read the rest of the books in the quintet when I can, for now I’m off to watch the movie (Oprah as Mrs. Which 😍 , so excited.)
Written by Tade Thompson, author of The murders of Molly Southbourne. Rosewater is set in a futuristic Nigeria with a mysterious alien biodome, psychics and crime drama so you can see why I’m excited about reading this book.
Rosewater is a town on the edge. A community formed around the edges of a mysterious alien biodome, its residents comprise the hopeful, the hungry and the helpless – people eager for a glimpse inside the dome or a taste of its rumoured healing powers.
Kaaro is a government agent with a criminal past. He has seen inside the biodome, and doesn’t care to again – but when something begins killing off others like himself, Kaaro must defy his masters to search for an answer, facing his dark history and coming to a realisation about a horrifying future.
