Som sagt, första tredjedelen är som om Harry Potter korsat med Drunken Master. Sen tvärvänder allt och blir en sloppy YA, där tonårsångest och typ Marvels Avengers blandas. Riktigt kass. Läs Dandelion Dynasty istället om du vill ha lite västerländsk Wuxia
An outstanding debut DAILY MAIL A book that will go down as one of the best grimdark/military fantasy debuts of all time BOOKNEST A masterpiece by grimdarks newest and perhaps darkest daughter FANTASY BOOK REVIEW A wholly unique experience THE WASHINGTON POST This first book in The Poppy War trilogy won numerous debut awards when it was published in 2018, and upon reading it you quickly understand why WOMAN & HOME R.F. Kuangs fresh approach to magic and hard-hitting story is a punch to the gut fantasy has needed for a long time. I cant wait for THE DRAGON REPUBLIC Peter V. Brett, bestselling author of The Demon Cycle Enthralling from start to finish I thought myself prepared. I was now. R.F. Kuangs debut is a masterful must-read, and Ive no doubt the best is yet to come Nicholas Eames, author of KINGS OF THE WYLD A blistering, powerful epic of war and revenge that will captivate you to the bitter end Kameron Hurley, author of THE LIGHT BRIDAGE Fresh, assured, character-driven fantasy thats choc full of magic, war, and betrayal. I loved it from start to finish Peter Newman, author of THE VAGRANT A powerful, emotional journey, compellingly written Adrian Tchaikovsky, award-winning author of THE CHILDREN OF TIME An original and engrossing tale of the coming of age of a talented young soldier amid the horrors of invasion and genocide Anna Stephens, author of GODBLIND I so enjoyed The Poppy War by R. F. Kuang It is all about survival, and how a persons will and determination can change the course of their life. I loved the central character, felt her pain and her far-too-brief moments of joy, and just loved how Kuang breathes fresh life into the warrior training school Highly recommended John Gwynne, author of MALICE
