The Dragon Republic õ Nikan will drive her away from every ally and lead her to rely and on the Phoenix’s deadly power Because there is nothing she won’t sacrifice for her country and her vengeanceThe seuel to RF 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 effec this book is a black hole it consumes everything in its path and leaves no survivors if youve read 'the poppy war' you already know this series was headed for inevitable darkness this is a bleak unforgiving installment of betrayal heartbreak loss and anger i know many readers wont like the relentless tone of this novel but i love it appreciate it even i think kuang expertly captures the feelings and atmosphere of war regardless of how miserable it may make the reader i also love how rins character is developing she definitely lives in that morally graymiddle area but the reader exists in that area right along with her even if i didnt agree with some of the choices she made i could definitely understand and empathise with her the writing is a delight as well it feels so fresh which should be impossible given the subject material but the writing takes a historical influence and makes it feel modern    the only thing preventing me from giving this five stars is the fact that the plot is so warpoliticsstrategy heavy which is such a silly thing to complain about i know i know this is a war based historical fiction fantasy novelseries but its the fantasy elements that really draw me into the story and sell it i wish i could enjoy the war aspect but my eyes tend to glaze over long paragraph of tactical descriptions thats no fault of the books though overall this is a brilliant seuel i can tell kuang has grown as a writer since her debut she was strong before but now she is straight up lethal and i fully expect the next book in the series to be the death of me ↠ 45 stars doc á The Dragon Republic ¹ R.F.

JungShan has created another spectacular cover selling ink illustration and I’m confident that many readers will pick up the bookseries even if they don’t know anything about it The same situation as its predecessor the uality of the content of the book did justice to the beautiful cover art and vice versa I’m pretty sure practically everyone who knows me on bookish social media knows how much I loved The Poppy War I even created a Twitter account just to wish the author a congratulatory message on her debut’s publication day If you don’t knowremember here’s a short snippet of what I said about the first book “I have no doubt this will end up being the best fantasy debut of the year a book that will go down as one of the best grimdarkmilitary fantasy debuts of all time I have absolutely no doubt that Kuang’s name will be up there with the likes of Robin Hobb and NK Jemisin” Yeah suffice to say that I highly loved the first book Since then The Poppy War has also garnered well deserved praises nominations and awards; my high expectations towards its seuel were inevitable and I’m glad to say that after reading this book my worry was unfounded and Kuang entranced me once again with her newest installment No story summary from me; if you want to know the plot read the official synopsis of the book at your own risk Following the catastrophic conclusion of the first book The Dragon Republic plunges Rin and her companions into a brand new war In the first installment Kuang divided her storytelling clearly into two sections; a coming of age battle school fantasy for the first half and a grim military fantasy for the second half Unlike other series like The Kingkiller Chronicle or Harry Potter where the characters continue training in schools The Dragon Republic threw away the battle school concept completely turning the book completely into a cleverly crafted military fantasy Full of darkness tactics shifting allegiances war and death Kuang continues her trademark of delivering a superb story that vividly explores the horrors of war I loved Kuang’s prose in the first book which is why I found it to be incredibly satisfying to read her stunning improvement in prose within this novel This is a significantly bigger book than The Poppy War it’s almost 700 pages long and yet there wasn’t any moment that felt boring or dull The engaging narrative and prose captivated me thoroughly from cover to cover; the second half in particular—especially the last 20% on this later—was simply amazing and pulse pounding War changes everyone indiscriminately; no one came out of it unscathed mentally or physically The escalating and harrowing effects or aftermath of war were shown expertly through the well developed characterizations “You will die thinking I have abandoned you all But I do not hesitate to say that I value the lives of my people far than I have ever valued you” As with its predecessor the narrative was told exclusively through Rin’s perspective The events of the first book have left Rin riddled with guilt regret and anger To say that Rin is angry is seriously putting it mildly She’s angry at the world at herself at her friends at everything War has changed her and her companions and yet they still can’t catch a break; peace remains firmly lodged out of grasp and unforgettable loss continues to happen This is a grim book written with mature and refined prose; the character’s darkness and personality elicited emotional responses of all kinds from me I mentioned in my review of the first book that that Rin is one of my favorite heroines in fantasy because I found her to be very well written and her personality traits were really clear That being said something you have to know is that Rin is inspired by Mao Zedong Rin does make uestionable decisions She has no impulse control and she does a lot of stupid things because of her anger and what happened to her In her path toward overcoming legacy opium addiction and accepting her power Kuang deconstructs Rin’s character completely down to her core presenting her at her worst for almost the entirety of the first half I’ll admit that in the first half there were moments where I wanted to slap her several times and in my honest opinion this period of time could’ve been shortened a bit However seeing her at her worst did make her the fruition of her character development in the second half stronger This situation reminded me of Blood of Assassins by RJ Barker another book I really loved which involved the main character being driven heavily by darkness and rage but came out all the better once the character was able to overcome it I highly praise Kuang for her characterization for Rin and the side characters Most of the side characters helped immensely in bringing moments of heartwarming and light to balance Rin’s life; their interactions were charming compelling and I loved reading about them The world building has also moved further beyond Nikara and the Mugenese federation The new race Hesperian came into play here Hesperian is a race of Westerners most likely an allusion Germany during World War II and their arrival brought technologies aruebuses airships and expansion to the world building Not only was the world building expanded but Kuang also provided revelations and in depth lore to the history of her world One last thing before I close this review I would like to applaud Kuang’s imaginative and destructive depiction of the magical battle scenes The action seuences were simply magnificent and the last 20% of the book demonstrates Kuang’s best battle scenes and closing seuences so far It was insanely breathtaking by showing the power of a vermillion myth and the gods the clash of the blazing rage and overwhelming cyclone were extremely well executed The actions and character’s decisions constantly delivered immense implications for future events of the series Kuang truly ignited her skill in writing great military fantasy within the last 20% and I honestly can’t wait for The gripping naval warfare brilliant aerial combat tension packed elemental battle and the unflinching infernal torrent of powers were vividly realized and felt cinematic to read “This was what the balance of power looked like now People like her waved a hand and millions were crushed within the confines of some elemental disaster flung off the chessboard of the world like irrelevant pieces” I don’t think I have anything else to say without spoiling any events from the series If you loved The Poppy War I honestly think that you have nothing to worry about The Dragon Republic is an unputdownable seuel that deflects the infamous middle book syndrome with brutal precision With The Dragon Republic Kuang has proven that her debut wasn't a one hit wonder further establishing herself as the new rising ueen of fantasy The architect behind Jade City said “Brace yourself” Let me just add that you’ll have to find an adamantium building to hold on to The might and rage of the Phoenix knows no limit and Rin's newest journey will mercilessly incinerate your heart up to the last page Rebecca Kuang and this series is truly a treasure for Asian inspired military fantasy and I simply can't wait to read the conclusion of this trilogy SidenoteThe dark atmosphere in this book was truly palpable bad things happen a LOT Make sure you’re in the right mood and headspace before you read this book Also #FireDick happened literallyOfficial release date August 8th 2019 UK and August 6th 2019 USYou can pre order the book from UK | US | Book Depository Free shipping The uotes in this review were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publication You can find this and the rest of my reviews at Novel Notions
