Book Review: Red Tigress by Amelie Wen Zhoa

40126656. sy475

Ana Mikhailov is the only surviving member of the royal family of Cyrilia. She has no army, no title, and no allies, and now she must find a way to take back the throne or risk the brutal retribution of the empress. Morganya is determined to establish a new world order on the spilled blood of non-Affinites. Ana is certain that Morganya won’t stop until she kills them all.

Ana’s only chance at navigating the dangerous world of her homeland means partnering with Ramson Quicktongue again. But the cunning crime lord has schemes of his own. For Ana to find an army, they must cross the Whitewaves to the impenetrable stone forts of Bregon. Only, no one can be certain what they will find there.

A dark power has risen. Will revolution bring peace–or will it only paint the streets in more blood. 

In this sequel to Blood Heir, Ana continues her journey to reclaim her throne, in this blood-soaked adventure into a foreign kingdom that has its own trouble.

I read Blood Heir some time ago, and I remember enjoying it. So, in a book dash I bought the sequel. I will likely buy the third and final book, because I need to know how all the strings connect in the end. I enjoyed the characters, writing, and the world building. The story is original and winding, the writing is fluid and emotion-invoking, and the characters are individuals with their own past and future.

My only complains are personal, which include a bit too much prose and narration, but I wouldn’t change a thing about this book. It’s beautiful the way it is.

Red Tigress didn’t quite grab me and hold on. I felt the need to push myself to continue, and looking to see how many pages I had left.

So, Red Tigress gets a 4 out of 5 from me.
