    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! ...

    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...

    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)] ...

    This is not a sequel. It's a completly different story with some guest appearances by former characters. The new characters couldn't fill in the gap for me. The story itself is unfortunately nothing new: wandering around, save the world, defeat the evil. Everything I loved about the fi...

    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...

    this review describes my feelings really well. basically, book 1 was a retelling of the evil stepmother from snow white. Xifeng was a fascinating character to read - a complex antihero who had me passionately rooting both for and against her. this sequel is a (loose) retelling of the s...

    AHHHHHHH the blurb!!!! I hope in the end Jade and Xeifeng become friends and burn the world together!!!!! NOW GIMME THE BOOK NOW ______________ Call me crazy but I want to know more about White Jade then Xifeng. I can't stop thinking where this would go. ...

    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...

    Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix is the sequel to Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, and I've been eagerly anticipating it ever since I finished the first book last year. The sequel switches gears and focuses on Jade (east Asian Snow White, reimagined), who is destined to overthrow her evil ...

    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. ...

    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...

    In many ways, Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix wasn?t what I was expecting. It?s predecessor, Forest of a Thousand Lanterns, was dark and uncomfortable (in a good way!) and a retelling of a villain origin story. Obviously I therefore loved it. But I wasn?t sure how that would fold ...

    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 ...

    ?Bravery isn't just about being strong and handy with a sword. Sometimes it's about resolve...or deciding whether to face a past you'd rather forgot.? 2.5 stars. Although I enjoyed Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix , I can't help but be a little disappointed with it. Perhaps i...

    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 ...
