I received an early copy of this, and I can confirm you are in for a treat This is an epic sequel that succeeds in being both really different from book 1, but also comfortably familiar There s lots to love here, from seeing where each character in book 1 ends up after 15 years, to exploring the incredible world of Feng Lu, to the gut wrenching ending A thrill ride of a read Don t miss this series

I m rooting for you, Xifeng

Maybe Coming out next year I am curious about what will happen next to Xifeng, but I d love it if she doesn t have to kill anybody in the next book I know she s an anti heroine, which is not my favorite, but she s well drawn in her complexity.
I am lucky to have read an early version of Julie s Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix book 2 of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns This story takes place 15 years later, and told from Jade s POV the princess, who is good and earnest She and her lovable merry band of comrades go on an epic, unforgettable, imaginative, magical journey quest to save the kingdom from the horrors of the Empress Julie s trademark lush descriptions, gorgeous world, and vivid imagination are all there in this exciting second bo [...]
I finished this in less than 24 hours What a beautiful follow up and conclusion to the Rise of the Empress series Full review TK
An absolutely SPECTACULAR sequel to finish off one of the best YA fantasy series in recent years
I had the opportunity to read an early draft of KINGDOM and loved it It is nothing like FOREST, but totally familiar at the same time I was so excited to see Xifeng again and wasn t disappointed at her first scene While I still love Xifeng, I was completely rooting for Jade, KINGDOM s heroine If you liked FOREST, you ll really enjoy KINGDOM
So excited for this
