The searing follow-up to 2018's most celebrated fantasy debut - THE POPPY WAR.

Rin is on the run...

Haunted by the atrocity she committed to save her people, addicted to opium, and driven by the murderous commands of Phoenix, the vengeful god who has blessed Rin with her fearsome power.

Rin's only reason for living is to get revenge on the traitorous Empress who sold her homeland, Nikan, to her enemies.

With no other options, Rin joins forces with the powerful Dragon Warlord, who has a plan to conquer Nikan, unseat the Empress, and create a new Republic. She throws herself into his war.

After all, making war is all she knows how to do...

MEDIA REVIEWS

PRAISE FOR THE POPPY WAR:

`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 grimdark's newest and perhaps darkest daughter'
FANTASY BOOK REVIEW

`A wholly unique experience'
THE WASHINGTON POST

`R.F. Kuang's fresh approach to magic and hard-hitting story is a punch to the gut fantasy has needed for a long time. I can't wait for THE DRAGON REPUBLIC'
Peter V. Brett, bestselling author of The Demon Cycle

`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 that's 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 person's 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

“An amazing sequel!”

Having just finished the The Poppy War, it was great to jump straight back in with Rin and the God Squad, and to follow up the events following the climactic of the Third Poppy War. One of my favourite aspects of The... More

“Unbelievably, this is better than the first book!”

I was so excited to be diving back into the darkness and horror of this world, and Kuang did not disappoint. The Dragon Republic tells the continuing story of Rin as she attempts to process the events of The Poppy... More
