The Tiger’s Daughter (Their Bright Ascendancy #1) by K. Arsenault Rivera

Publication Date: October 3rd 2017

Goodreads Summary
Even gods can be slain….

The Hokkaran empire has conquered every land within their bold reach―but failed to notice a lurking darkness festering within the people. Now, their border walls begin to crumble, and villages fall to demons swarming out of the forests.

Away on the silver steppes, the remaining tribes of nomadic Qorin retreat and protect their own, having bartered a treaty with the empire, exchanging inheritance through the dynasties. It is up to two young warriors, raised together across borders since their prophesied birth, to save the world from the encroaching demons.

This is the story of an infamous Qorin warrior, Barsalayaa Shefali, a spoiled divine warrior empress, O-Shizuka, and a power that can reach through time and space to save a land from a truly insidious evil.

This book came close to slipping under my radar and I’m so glad it didn’t. The Tiger’s Daughter sounds like a combination of everything I love in fantasy. A dark festering power and tasking two young warriors to save the kingdom from this entity. A classic fantasy setting that will undoubtedly suck me in from the get go. I can easily see myself devouring this book.

What’s your most anticipated book?

  1. I loved this book so much, it was beautifully written and the relationship between the main characters was explored so well. There are some aspects about the worldbuilding that I do question especially regarding how Japan/Chinese influences seemed to be mixed a little bit indiscriminately – but aside from that little nitpick, I would wholeheartedly recommend it. Can’t wait to hear what you think!
