The Tiger’s Daughter (Their Bright Ascendancy #1)
by K. Arsenault Rivera
Published October 2017, by Tor Books
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.
I haven’t seen many people talk about this book, but the few who have read and reviewed The Tiger’s Daughter have done nothing but praise it. I found the first two books in the trilogy for a few dollars each on Book Outlet, so I ordered them and I’m looking forward to reading them. They’re tentatively on my November TBR.
