Where in Tivara do I begin?!

Let me start with the story telling. Kang has a unique way of developing fantastic plot lines with multiple subplots, layered on top of more subplots, that ultimately create the highest achievable guessing game experience of its kind. You NEVER know what is going to happen next. It is completely unpredictable and brimming with suspense. But no matter how many threads there are, there are never any loose ends. He has a way of weaving together a tapestry of

A very intricate tale in the Tivara series full of adventure, great sword fights, magic and magical artefacts, backstabbing traitors, and a wonderful cast of characters who are all thrown together through the desperate pacts of forced marriages of the respective royals. Prince Elrayn wanted to unite the nations of Serikoth and Tarkoth, a noble goal in itself as these had once been a unified empire, however he was using underhanded measures to reach this goal. He might also have been plotting all ...more

I adore JC Kang’s Legends of Tivara stories. They are the definition of what constitutes epic sword and sorcery storytelling - and have turned me into a believer that a medieval Asia (mixture of ancient Japan and other Asian cultures) setting is far better for fantasy than a Euro-centric one. No surprise then that I loved the latest installment of these tales, Crown of the Sundered Empire. I love the lead character here, Tomas. It’s incredible what he goes through and overcomes. From a fishing v ...more

Wow a fantastic read. Tomas dreams of better days he has quite a few hurdles to deal with. This read grabbed me from the first page to the last. This is definitely one of favorite reads. There is epic battles lots of twists and turns. And a roller coaster of adventure. This is a huge read but it totally never has a dull moment the world building and characters are written so well that with this page turner I totally got lost while reading. This would make a fantastic series on netflix. I definit ...more

Loved it Loved all of the the great twist and turns and the great characters. It is impossible to go into depth and talk about this book. I don't read reviews for that. What I want to know is should I waste my time and money on this book and I say if you want to read a book that that will entertain you you and keep you up reading than yes this book is for you! Anything by K C Kang is first rate.

Kang never ceases to amaze me with his stories and world building. I have to read his books from start to finish or I can't sleep. This book follows Tomas as he battles the Boyans, looses an eye, and learns life gives us hard choices; and Jie as she follows the assassin she is charged to find and ends up in a side war that makes her choose between love and duty.

Simply put this book was a developed fantasy that went way beyond the pages. But I am not simple. This book was pretty good. The plot and politics were well developed and I felt like it was a history of my own world that I was reading. It was a little hard to keep the characters straight but that is because all the families and people were so intertwined with one another. It made for a few interesting plot points in the story. I would recommend it to all fantasy lovers but be ready to invest in ...more

This was my first book by this author and wow, what can I say. There is so much going on, I was a bit lost at first, but soon was totally drawn into this world. I really enjoyed getting to know all the different. strong characters. I can't wait to see where this goes in the future.

I absolutely loved reading about Tomas and his adventures! He’s such an underdog that I found myself cheering him on at every step. The story had me experiencing a range of emotions right along with Tomas and I was genuinely heartbroken at the end of the book. I can’t wait for more!

political intrigue at its finest. Everyone's a puppet against time and a little bit of magic, but who is the puppet master.
