In advance of its release on July 23, Jade War has garnered a triumvirate of starred reviews from Publisher’s Weekly, Library Journal, and Kirkus. Here’s what they’re saying:

“Lee’s story is sweeping, leisurely, and epic, and combines political intrigue with sharply choreographed action scenes, but it’s a character-driven family drama at its heart. Conflict ranges from delicate boardroom negotiations to dramatic duels, and from assassinations to all-out war, while the increasingly complex narrative continually ups the stakes. This worthy continuation of the larger story line delivers a satisfying tale and sets the stage for the next installment.” —Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“Smart and action-filled fantasy, filled with vibrant characters.” —Library Journal (starred review)

“Strong, thoughtful, and fast-paced.” —Kirkus (starred review)
