Each addition to this saga gets more enthralling, more action-packed, more emotionally engaging and just MORE of everything great reading should be! J.C. Kang’s world is mesmerizing, terrifying, devious and filled with heroic deeds of selflessness, deeds of inner strength, all happening in a world that is both vibrant and soulful.

Political machinations, magical powers, legends and minds twisted by power, using the masses as fodder to push their agendas and feed their greed. Through it all, one

In the aftermath of the Emperor's death, Princess Kaiya turns out to be the only one of his children who is competent to rule in the midst of a major crisis for Cathay. Kaiya must deal with a revolting cousin who she once trusted, and a simultaneous Teleri invasion. She is also attempting to recover from the traumatic events of the previous novel. Some readers might consider this too tall an order for a nineteen year old, but Kaiya has shouldered her responsibilities and met big challenges in th ...more

Picking up where Book #3, Dances of Deception left off, we find Princess Kaiya stripped of the magic of her voice. She is forced to negotiate the political turmoil and deadly ambitions tearing her kingdom apart with only her wits, and while dealing with the legacy of her own traumas.
This final part of The Dragon Songs Saga brings Kaiya’s story to an explosive finale, with wars, conquest, assassination attempts, and magic, all vying for domination in a story filled with dramatic twists and turns.

Sometimes words like “epic”, “imaginative” and “powerful” are bandied around too frequently. Other times, if anything, they’re an understatement. JC Kang’s The Dragon Songs Saga is an example of the latter. These books are ridiculously imaginative in the world-building and character-building by the author. Totally different (though I think I can see the Japanese heritage with its geisha, samurai, ninja assassins and cultural structure generally) but absolutely genuine from the biggest details to ...more

This was the final book in the quartet The Dragonsong Saga, and it was just as captivating as the first three books with all its intricate weaving of plots and sub-plots. I loved the way the author brought things together in the end and tied up all the loose ends so well, however I was not very happy with the ending, maybe this was written as it was to leave scope for further books about Tivara and our fantastic characters. There is still scope for much more. A tale of good against evil, with Ka ...more

Kaiya has grown from a naive girl to a competent and capable woman, though still guided by her compassionate nature. One of my favourite aspects of this book is that she can no longer rely on magic to get her way; instead, she must rely on her wit (albeit aided by the cold logic of the Tiger's Eye) and place her trust in others.

Although Jie was not always the most likeable character, I still felt deeply for her. Despite all her losses and hardships, she still worked hard to serve her country, an

The plots in this wonderful series seem to get more complex with each new book, and you will need your wits about you to stay on top of the machinations of all the spies, devious bureaucrats, evil warlords and elves, not to mention the several sets of apparently identical twins. There's humour, there's excitement and there's emotion, and through the maelstrom strides the indomitable Kaiya, resourceful even in apparent defeat, with her youth and delicate stomach on the one hand balancing her hero ...more

I will miss Kaiya and Tian...
When I finished this book I keep trying to move to the next page until I realize the story really ended. It was an amazing travel from book 1 with a very young and naïve Kaiya to this book where she is a wise and beautiful young woman ready to sacrifice everything for her people. We follow Princess Kaiya through a lot of political storms, a bunch of traitorous characters, (some of them I'd never suspected were unfaithful), wonderful landscapes and unexpected situatio

Treachery, rivalry, conspiracy, loyalty, who will survive? The wars continue. Discover the conspiracies brought on by those seeking power. Find out who is pulling all the strings. Kaiya is strong and confident, always with Hua first in her mind. This book pulls all the adventures together in a page turning, fast paced story. It has been a thrilling read by revealing many of the secrets held by and from the characters. The Dragon Songs Saga is a wonderful story of fierce loyalty to a country by a ...more

A culmination of events left me turning pages like crazy in this fourth installment in the Dragon Songs Saga. It's hard to speak of the action of this book without giving too much away, but the fates of all major characters coalesce into a text full of surprises and plot twists. Will Kaiya and Tian finally be together? What will become of Jie? Can Kaiya save her country, or are they doomed to fall under Teleri rule? Check out this action-packed sequel from J.C. Kang for all the answers! Kang has ...more

I love when I get to carve out a block of time with J.C. Kang! Sometimes it takes me a while to find it, but when I do I get lost in another land and just devour each book. SO.GOOD. I always hate having to return to reality when it ends. Looking forward to reading about Jie's adventures~please keep them coming for forever!

Kaiya escapes an ordeal only to return to her homeland full of trouble. Another exciting story to keep you reading. Loved this entire series from beginning to end. Perhaps there’ll be more or at least another series.

Good, solid series.
This was an extremely satisfying ending. It was nice to finally see years of planning, schemes, betrayals, secrets and hidden truths about Cathy, and Kaiya role in it all come together. It was also great to no only see old characters again but still find myself being shocked and surprised by the story even with the fourth book in this series.

Full review to come soon.
