First an outcast, now a hero.

But her fight rages on.

Kira, the yellow-eyed demon slayer who fiercely protected her kingdom—and the crown prince—has been proclaimed the Dragon Musado of the prophecy. With the defeated the evil shaman.

But it wasn’t enough.

Hansong is in chaos. The Demon Lord’s minions have infiltrated the city, treason is brewing among the military ranks, and Kira is buried by the overwhelming loss of her parents. She’s also plagued by the annoying feelings that blossom whenever she’s around Jaewon. But she is determined that nothing will stop her from finding the second treasure needed to fulfill the Dragon King’s prophecy. Not even the army of half-breed demons hot on their trail. If only she could learn to trust others…

Her father always said one person can change the world. Will it be Kira?

review

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!


quotes

They don’t see the real you. They see only the outside and are frightened by your differences, and in their blindness they can’t see how truly wonderful you are.
Our power lies in the choices we make.
Even pretty things can be deadly.
Any woman can be powerful and dangerous, if they choose to be.
Better to know and be prepared, rather than ignorant and dead.
Life is so much more difficult than we thought it would be when we were young.
I’m not exactly the marrying kind.
Who said I need a man to be happy?
Maybe some lucky people meet their soul mate. The rest of us continue on the best we can, never knowing that there’s something missing. We can still be happy enjoying the little things in life.
