Winner of the Reddit Fantasy Award for Best Debut 2018 The best fantasy debut of 2018 WIRED A brilliantly imaginative epic fantasy debut, inspired by the bloody history of Chinas twentieth century and filled with treachery and magic. When Rin aced the Keju the test to find the most talented students in the Empire it was a shock to everyone: to the test officials, who couldnt believe a war orphan from Rooster Province could pass without cheating; to Rins guardians, who had hoped to get rich by marrying her off; and to Rin herself, who realized she was finally free from a life of servitude. That she got into Sinegard the most elite military school in Nikan was even more surprising. But surprises arent always good. Because being a dark-skinned peasant girl from the south is not an easy thing at Sinegard. Fighting the prejudice of rival classmates, Rin discovers that she possesses a lethal, unearthly power an aptitude for the nearly-mythical art of shamanism. Exploring the depths of her gift with the help of psychoactive substances and a seemingly insane teacher, Rin learns that gods long thought dead are very much alive and that mastering these powers could mean more than just surviving school. For while the Nikara Empire is at peace, the Federation of Mugen still lurks across a narrow sea. The Federation occupied Nikan for decades after the First Poppy War, and only barely lost the continent in the Second. And while most people calmly go about their lives, a few are aware that a Third Poppy War is just a spark away

  1. Älskade första tredjedelen, sen blev det magplask
    kmf, 23 april 2021

    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
