REVIEW- I will keep this short and sweet, because it is a sequel. I was new to this Author, and thankfully TLC Book Tours sent me the first book in the series as well. After reading THE POPPY WARS, I was ready for The Dragon Republic. I was not let down for one second. I love this world, and I love how well Kuang develops her characters and the plotlines. This was such an addictive series, I really struggled with putting them both down. I just hate when life gets in the way. This series was so far out of my reading realm, and I am ecstatic that it worked out well for me.
