    I expected to find this boring, or that i won?t find the character as compelling as Xifeng, and that i would not like the journey mentioned in other reviews. But what do i know, turned out i loved it more than its predecessor. Jade is humble yet strong, fearful yet tries her hard...

    I loved this continuation of the series and the juxtaposition of Jade's character to Xifeng. This book really built the world and mythology out, which I loved. I'd definitely read more involving these characters or this world in the future! ...

    Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix is the second in a duology, but it is a very different sort of book, which I didn't expect. Forest of a Thousand Lanterns is an intensely character driven, brilliantly re-telling of Snow White via the backstory of the evil queen set in ancient China. It i...

    Review to come. I have to know what happens, I am absolutely in love with Forest of a Thousand Lanterns and Xifeng. Maybe not such realistic snakes on the cover though, yes? I absolutely love the new cover designs they are gorgeous oh man just look. I desperately need more Xif...

    *sigh* It's never as fun reading about the good guy. It's a real shame that this sequel is so slow when Forest of a Thousand Lanterns was so freaking good. It's also a shame to see the focus go from the amazing evil complex villain that is Xifeng, to rightful Empress and all-round ...

    I loved Forest of a Thousand Lanterns when I read it last year, so I was eagerly anticipating this companion novel sequel. Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix takes place years after the first novel, with Princess Jade having grown up in a monastery in exile. When her stepmother Xifeng, the...

    January 14, 2018: Hello lovely readers! I never visit my books' Goodreads pages anymore, since these should be safe spaces for readers to share whatever they think and I 100% respect that. Thank you for telling others what you think, no matter what review or rating you leave, becaus...

    The audio of this book is wonderful. Julie C. Dao is a gem. I love how she completed the duology retelling the evil queen and Snow White. Jade is a powerful beautiful girl, and while I rooted for her, I still remember how morally Gray book one was. ...

    Predictions: (view spoiler)[1) White Jade is Snow White 2) Akira's son is the prince 3) Wei is the hunter who lets White Jade go 4) The price Xifeng pays is that she can't have kids. (hide spoiler)] ...

    I liked the first book in this series, so I was pretty eager to see how this one played out. Jade was an easy character to like. She?s loyal and good and nice. So so so sooooooooo nice. And that?s sort of where I lost interest. What I loved from the first book was Xifeng?s ru...

    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 e...

    "And who said heroes have to be men? Why can't just a girl summon the army of the gods? Why can't just a girl save an empire?" Rating 3.60 stars A beautiful tale cut short rushing too fast to the finish line. This is the story of Jade, true heir to the Kingdom of Feng Lu, wh...

    No spoilers in this review of Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix. I liked it pretty well and give it 3 stars. This sequel was different from what I expected. I thought it would focus on Xifeng, the main character in Forest of a Thousand Lanterns. She certainly wasn?t my favorite characte...

    actual rating: 2.5 okay honestly I'll admit I went into this with a bit of a bias because Xifeng is in my top 5 favorite characters of all time so I knew this probably wouldn't pan out in a way I was happy with. But I was willing to give it a chance and see if I could be persuaded t...

    My first book of 2019, and - I'm calling it - my most unexpected read of this year. I wasn't a big fan of this book's prequel, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns , but this... this was actually a good book. So for those who have heard that Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix doesn't hold up to...

    This duology is without a doubt one of my favourite fantasies I?ve ever read. It?s beautifully and intricately written and yet so easy to read. The world is stunning and immersive, without being too heavily described. It features one of the most brilliantly developed and fantasti...

    2.5 stars I?m so upset that I didn?t love this. After the way I was completely taken in by FoaTL I thought that this would be another five whole stars. But the most dynamic characters were those that carried over from book one, or the supporting cast in this era. I wasn?t pull...

    I'm constantly checking to see when this book will have more info. I am so anxious that this beautiful anti-hero is going to end horribly because the actual "hero" has to win in the end, right? UGH. I need this book so badly. - - - That Title is on FIRE. ...

    The predecessor to Kingom of the Blazing Phoenix (Forest of a Thousand Lanterns) was one of my favorite books I read in 2018. Obviously, I was ecstatic when the sequel was coming out because I so wanted to see what was going to happen next. I was wondering how I would like the perspect...

    DNF at page 193, 50% I'm not going to lie, I feel so let down by this. After A Forest of a Thousand Lanterns I was really really looking forward to this. It was unique and twisted and a totally unexpected read for last year. So going into this I knew this would be in the perspective...

    4.5 stars Forest of a Thousand Lanterns was great, but Kingdom of the Blazing Phoneix was even better. Because wow. I think Dao really stepped up with the world building in this one, and it wasn't in an info dump nature. There was a lot of just exploration of different areas of ...

    I really enjoyed the first book. It was a very interesting version of how the evil queen became evil from Snow White set in a fantasy imperial China type setting. This takes place about 15 years after the first book and really almost feels like a stand alone. It didn?t really do the ...
