The Dragon Republic
The Dragon Republic | R. F. Kuang
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.

Catching up on my reviews here on Litsy.

This is a once-you-start-you-can‘t-stop kind of book. Be prepared for a wild ride and some jaw-dropping moments. Some parts made me gasped so loudly that my 2yo asked me, what‘s wrong mommy!

Now, the agony of waiting for the final installment. I want to read more about Moag! I‘m already liking her crew!

R. F. Kuang's The Dragon Republic, the second novel in The Poppy War series, is an amazing, epic fantasy novel. Rin, trying to move on from the tragic events at the end of The Poppy War and to seek vengeance against the The Empress, remains at the center of this novel. Her great physical strength and her power mask extreme emotional vulnerability, a fragility she hides by walling off her deepest feelings. (continued in comments)

UnabridgedPod Serving as the leader of the Cike, a group of god-powered friends, Rin wrestles with questions of morality, confronts the single mindedness of religious fervor and the horrible prejudice of cultural and ethnic blindness from a new race. Kuang once again builds a believable, strong character who must work through her grief and her weaknes to make a difference not only for herself but for her entire society. ⬇️ 2mo
UnabridgedPod Her attempts to take the right path are often met with failure, but her tenacity never lets up. I was reminded of one of the brilliant rivalry between Game of Thrones' Cersei Lannister and Arya Stark, in which each character is complex and compelling. I cannot recommend this series enough. 2mo

Just as brutal and gripping as the first book.

Mehso-so

I think this series just isn‘t for me. Parts of this were so gripping I was breathlessly turning pages and parts were a total slog. I will admit that I love how much I dislike the main character and I still want to know how things end but I don‘t think I will be reading the next book. I wish I loved this as much as everyone does.

Book mail is the best mail!! Super excited to get my hands on these. Not sure when I will actually get to them due to my ever growing TBR but I am happy to add to my collection nonetheless.
