The second book in The Dandelion Dynasty, the epic fantasy trilogy by Ken Liu.

Dara is united under the Emperor Ragin, once known as Kuni Garu, the bandit king. There has been peace for six years, but the Dandelion Throne rests on bloody foundations – Kuni's betrayal of his friend, Mata Zyndu, the Hegemon. The Hegemon's rule was brutal and unbending – but he died well, creating a legend that haunts the new emperor, no matter what good he strives to do.

Where war once forged unbreakable bonds between Kuni's inner circle, peace now gnaws at their loyalties. Where ancient wisdoms once held sway, a brilliant scholar promises a philosophical revolution. And from the far north, over the horizon, comes a terrible new threat... The scent of blood is in the water.

MEDIA REVIEWS

One of the most significant fantasy epics to come out in decades and deserves a permanent place on display in any home, as the classic it is - Strange Alliances

Liu's poetic and loquacious prose and often vivid descriptions really draw you in... The Wall of Storms is one of the fantasy books of 2016. Simply put it's not just a book that you read, it's a journey that you take and is highly recommended' - Tattooed Book Geek

Liu is a writer at the top of his game... the drama and action is impressive, delivered in compelling prose and tight set-piece scenes. Even the philosophical discussions and scientific explorations that drive the twists in the plot skip along with an urgency. But Liu's real skill is in keeping the story rooted in the hearts and lives of real people, regardless of the overall scale of the work' - Shoreline of Infinity

Poetic metaphorical prose is widely and pleasingly used in this series - newbooks

Liu's prose is excellent [and] there is a poetry to his work - Concatenation

Incredibly cinematic... Brimming with characters that sink deep under your skin, engaging epic war scenes, meticulously expansive world-building and lyrical prose - Petrik Leo
