#BlogTour: The Bone Shard Emperor by Andrea Stewart @AndreaGStewart @orbitbooks @Gambit589 @Tr4cyF3nt0n #TheBoneShardEmperor #AndreaStewart

Book Synopsis:

The Emperor is Dead. Long live the Emperor.

Lin Sukai finally sits on the throne she won at so much cost, but her struggles are only just beginning. Her people don’t trust her. Her political alliances are weak. And in a far corner of the Empire a rebel army of constructs is gathering, its leader determined to take the throne by force.

Yet an even greater threat is on the horizon, for the Alanga – the powerful magicians of legend – have returned to the Empire. Lin may need their help to defeat the rebels and restore order.

But can she trust them?

The Bone Shard Emperor is the unmissable sequel to The Bone Shard Daughter, one of the biggest fantasy debuts of recent years – a captivating tale of magic, revolution and mystery, where a young woman’s sense of identity will make or break an empire.

My Review:

I was a huge fan of the first book in this series so couldn’t wait to read this book, choosing a time to read when I knew I wouldn’t be interrupted. I was immediately drawn back into Lin’s world so it was like I’d never left.

Lin is a fantastic main character that I’ve really enjoyed getting to know throughout the series. I think it’s great that the author shows her flaws in the story so she seems realistic and therefore much easier to get behind or relate to. Her desire to be a different, kinder ruler than her father was very admirable, particularly as it seemed the support she had was a little shaky. The other main characters were great creations who all seemed to bring something different to the story which I thought was very clever.

I thought this book was extreme well plotted and there always seemed to be something happening to ensure I kept reading. The story is told from the point of view of the four main characters which was very effective in making the story very gripping as I was never sure what would happen next. This was especially true of the amazing battle scenes the author includes in the book which were fantastically well done! There are lots of surprises that kept me guessing, including a huge one at the end which I didn’t see coming which I always love. The ending was fantastic and I felt perfectly paved the way for the next book in the series – especially with the introduction of a new character which I have a bad feeling about.

This is the second book in the series and I definitely recommend reading the books in order as I feel you’ll get to know the world and the characters better.

Huge thanks to Tracy Fenton for inviting me onto the blog tour and to Orbit for my copy of this book.

About The Author:

Andrea Stewart is the daughter of immigrants, and was raised in a number of places across the United States. Her parents always emphasized science and education, so she spent her childhood immersed in Star Trek and odd-smelling library books.
When her (admittedly ambitious) dreams of becoming a dragon slayer didn’t pan out, she instead turned to writing books. She now lives in sunny California, and in addition to writing, can be found herding cats, looking at birds, and falling down research rabbit holes.
