Warrior by Ellen Oh, founder of #WeNeedDiverseBooks, will appeal to action-fantasy fans of Ranger's Apprentice, Eon, and Marie Lu's Legend series! With a strong heroine, romantic intrigue, and mythical creatures, such as a nine-tailed fox demon and a goblin army, Kira, the yellow-eyed demon slayer who protected her kingdom in Prophecy, is back—and her dramatic quest is far from over.

Kira has valiantly protected her kingdom—and the crown prince—and is certain she will find the second treasure needed to fulfill the Dragon King's prophecy.

Reviews

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Good, but could have been better! Prophecy was a book that felt like it ended nicely and I wasn't sure what to expect with Warrior. I knew there were more objects I find and in this case, the journey that Kira takes is one full of turmoil. I love journey adventure books and this one was no exception. Except I was completely overwhelmed with the culture phrases and words. Since I was on the e-ARC there was no glossary to help me. I liked how the story moved and was paced properly but I just wanted something more. Maybe there was a lack of relationship building between the characters. What blossomed between Kira and Love Interest was sudden and unexpected since I thought of them as being such good friends. It would have worked well without the romance only because I know how focused Kira is on her tasks and her need to protect her family, especially the young king. I loved the action scenes, Ellen Oh definitely knows how to write them. I love the world, and the setting and how brutal the villain King is. There's a death that I also felt that was needed. Only because it's one of those books where you know that they can't get any guidance from older characters. The young cast needs to go at it alone! An ongoing tale of adventure and survival, Warrior is a great addition to the Dragon King Chronicles!
