Awesome. Epic. Beautiful. Incredible. Six stars. Impossible to overstate how much I loved it. ( )
  elusiverica | Aug 15, 2020 |
An interesting fantasy set in a west that has some similarities to our east Asia, with, continually confusing and somewhat annoying to me, a Nissan culture fitting where I'd set a Han one. The characters are better than many in fantasy, and the settings both familiar and strange. The pacing stutters somewhat though not due to the mechanism of most of it being the retelling of their lives by one main character and read by the other.🌈 ( )

This is the first book in an Asian-inspired fantasy series. The setting is lush and mostly well described, and the characters are compelling. Still, it didn't quite hang together as a whole for me; something in the motivation was lacking, in everything except the central romance. I enjoyed reading it, but probably won't continue the series. ( )

This was beautiful and I loved it.

It won't necessarily be everyone's cup of tea. It's very epic fantasy: two heroes are born, destined to greatness together, they grow through early challenges, they slay demons, they are struck with hardships, they fight through, they confound the Powers That Be.

But at the same time, it is very not your standard epic fantasy. It is thick with style, told in an achingly intimate first-and-second person (as a letter written from one hero to the other) and simmered to a richness of emotional depth that I've rarely encountered in epic fantasy.

Bonus: a wonderful north-Asian setting, rife with details that felt very Chinese and Mongolian.
Double bonus: our two heroes are princesses, strong of will and striking in character.

So it might not be everyone's cup of tea, but I loved it outrageously and I suspect that for people who enjoy--who yearn for--that congruence of epic fantasy and emotional/style depth, it's going to be an enjoyable read at the very least.

If you're still wavering, Tor.com sampled the first four chapters, so you can try it out. ( )

I've had this book for awhile and have tried to read it a few times but each time I find myself setting it off to the side because I just cannot get into it. The writing style and format did not click with me at all. It was confusing and a little all over the place. There was also a lot of infodumping which really made the story drag on and on. One thing I was really excited about this book was that it was a fantasy with Asian inspiration rather than European like most of the rest but I felt, as well as many other people reviewing this book here and on Goodreads, that it was very poorly done. After trying to read the whole thing three times, I have officially given up. I don't want to spend anymore of my time on this one. ( )
