The Legend of Korra by Michael Dante DiMartino

It's a fine continuation of Korra's adventures, though it frustratingly seems to take a couple steps back as it takes a couple steps forward.

The Shadow of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee
Rate this book

Boasting itself as the "conclusion" to Kyoshi's story, fans of Avatar will hope that's a false prediction as they clamor for the remaining two centuries' worth of Kyoshi's markedly mature adventures under the reliable pen of F.C. Yee.

The Rise of Kyoshi by F.C. Yee
Rate this book
Clear rating
Fans will likely be pleased with this markedly dark and violent entry into the Avatar franchise, which fleshes out a fan-favorite character with plenty of fan-service while still telling an engaging story.

Thunderhead by Neal Shusterman

Clear rating
Without the burden of world-building, the second book in this fantastically macabre and surprisingly smart YA series dives into plot, character, and philosophical wonderings, leaving the reader dying to get to the bitter and shocking end.
