Blog Tour And Book Review Of “The Dragon Republic” By R.F. Kuang @TlcBookTours @kuangfr @harpervoyagerus

The searing follow-up to 2018’s most celebrated fantasy debut – THE POPPY WAR.

In the aftermath of the Third Poppy War, shaman and warrior Rin is on the run: haunted by the atrocity she committed to end the war, addicted to opium, and hiding from the murderous commands of her vengeful god, the fiery Phoenix. Her only reason for living is to get revenge on the traitorous Empress who sold out Nikan to their enemies.

With no other options, Rin joins forces with the powerful Dragon Warlord, who has a plan to conquer Nikan, unseat the Empress, and create a new Republic. Rin throws herself into his war. After all, making war is all she knows how to do.

But the Empress is a more powerful foe than she appears, and the Dragon Warlord’s motivations are not as democratic as they seem. The more Rin learns, the more she fears her love for Nikan will drive her away from every ally and lead her to rely more and more on the Phoenix’s deadly power. Because there is nothing she won’t sacrifice for her country and her vengeance.

The sequel to R.F. Kuang’s acclaimed debut THE POPPY WAR, THE DRAGON REPUBLIC combines the history of 20th-century China with a gripping world of gods and monsters, to devastating effect.

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.
