Rin’s story continues in this acclaimed sequel to The Poppy War—an epic fantasy combining the history of twentieth-century China with a gripping world of gods and monsters.

The war is over.
The war has just begun.

Three times throughout its history, Nikan has fought for its survival in the bloody Poppy Wars. Though the third battle has just ended, shaman and warrior Rin cannot forget the atrocity she committed to save her people. Now she is on the run from her guilt, the opium addiction that holds her like a vice, and the murderous commands of the fiery Phoenix—the vengeful god who has blessed Rin with her fearsome power.

Though she does not want to live, she refuses to die until she avenges the traitorous Empress who betrayed Rin’s homeland to its enemies. Her only hope is to join forces with the powerful Dragon Warlord, who plots to conquer Nikan, unseat the Empress, and create a new republic.

But neither the Empress nor the Dragon Warlord are what they seem. The more Rin witnesses, the more she fears her love for Nikan will force her to use the Phoenix’s deadly power once more.

Because there is nothing Rin won’t sacrifice to save her country . . . and exact her vengeance.

Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“This stunning sequel to The Poppy War is an epic journey of vengeance, friendship, and power…Kuang has created a young woman torn by her connections to friends and family, searching for love and belonging, and given power beyond her imagining. Her story is unforgettable.” Library Journal (starred review)
“Kuang’s descriptive storytelling reveals the grueling psychological and material cost of war on combatants and those they are supposed to protect. Fans of epic military fantasy will be eager for the next volume.” Booklist (starred review)
“Zeller’s fierce narration couples well with the story’s many dark and fantastical twists, keeping listeners on the edge of their seats. She creates clearly differentiated voices for a wide cast of characters, and her visceral portrayals of emotion encourage listeners to empathize with their struggles. Zeller maintains a passionate and energetic pace throughout, and as the story picks up in intensity, listeners will find it nearly impossible to press the pause button. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
