Goodreads Monday is hosted by Lauren’s Page Turners. It is when we show off a book from our TBR that we’re looking forward to reading.
The greatest warrior in all of the Seven Kingdoms… is a girl with yellow eyes.
Kira’s the only female in the king’s army, and the prince’s bodyguard. She’s a demon slayer and an outcast, hated by nearly everyone in her home city of Hansong. And, she’s their only hope…
Murdered kings and discovered traitors point to a demon invasion, sending Kira on the run with the young prince. He may be the savior predicted in the Dragon King Prophecy, but the missing treasure of myth may be the true key. With only the guidance of the cryptic prophecy, Kira must battle demon soldiers, evil shaman, and the Demon Lord himself to find what was once lost and raise a prince into a king.
Intrigue and mystery, ancient lore and action-packed fantasy come together in this heart-stopping first book in a trilogy.
This has long since been on my Korea TBR which is coming up in under a week 😀 I own a copy of each book in this series and as usual didn’t know when the time would come to read them as books that are set somewhere I usually like to read in that place or a similar location, so when my parents announced we were going on a trip to Korea where these books are set, well… it was time to blow the dust off the first book and count down the days until we go. I have come across a great many negative reviews for this book as a lot of people are saying the writing is mediocre and the books are too short with too little detail for books of these type. They’ve also said the characters have nothing special about them too, but what I’m looking forward to most is the culture and setting and hopefully all the action which has been advertised in the description. My main hopes are that these books are not as bad as everyone says they are because they weren’t exactly cheap to buy and on reading the extras at the back of the book, it appears the author has done a considerable amount of research into this time period and culture as she too likes to see more diverse settings in fantasy, a change from all the medieval Europe ones that are all so popular. I just hope to be able to connect to everything and hopefully at least get the first book finished while I’m there as I know I’ll be very busy once we arrive… 😉
