For an imperial assassin, assignment as a courtesan in the Floating World seems like a waste of her talents... until killers target her clan sisters.

In the legendary Floating World, wars are waged with wit, the strongest soldier can be bound with threads of silk, and flesh is the currency by which life, death, and freedom can all be purchased.

Half-elf Jie doesnt mind her

J.C. Kang has done it again with this box set of his floating world series . This series is fantastic and it has everything in it a reader loved . The main characters are easy friends who have you worrying about decisions they make good or bad . The world building is excellent and makes you feel like you are a part of the world . His writing skill completely draws you in and you hate to put any of these books down because you have to know what's going to happen .
So as a reader do yourself a

I adore the Legends of Tivara world created by JC Kang with its fantastic blend of Asian culture with fantasy including dwarves, elves and half-elves. Its Tales of the Floating World Story arc is utterly superb. It introduced one of my all-time favorite fantasy characters, Jie, a half-elf leader of a cell in a ninja-like clan of spies and assassins dedicated to imperial service, and the courtesans (and some secret assassins) of the Floating World. I loved how this story arc blended ninja-like ...more

This set of stories written in the intriguing Kang style of writing are full of sword and sorcery and epic adventures in a cultural setting which is highly interesting and colourful as the stories are based in the floating world of the night blossoms and our team are part of the scion of the black lotus. This team of young people are fully trained to fight and escape through the tightest of corners, they back one another and carry out feats which are amazing and very thrilling. I have read all 6 ...more

Just when you think being an imperial assassin couldn't be any riskier, wait until the heart becomes emotionally invested. Motives become blurred as the lines of loyalty to clan and heart begin to waver. This series is full of action, intensity, and drama that is dispersed throughout amazing characters and an intricate web of plots. The twists and turns throughout this series will lead you through the most shocking revelations and will keep you guessing until the last page. By the conclusion you ...more

The book talk about girls who work in the same as courtesans and agent for a secret clan (the black fist). The main character Jie is an half elf. The storie begin with the murder of a very important men for the empire. Follow treason, spies, love....

And i love the main character who wants to understand and forgive

I love JC Kangs Tivara world! I first started with the Dragon Songs Saga. I love that in this series, we get to experience Jies earlier years and Black Lotus training as well as see more of little Tian. This series is so great how the storylines intertwine and how things arent always what they appear to be. Kang has a way of building mystery and intrigue and pulling it all together. If you havent been introduced to this world yet, I think this is a great starting point as well and highly ...more

I read this books as they were being released individually and what an amazing surprise to know they are now part of a bundle! This story is so entertaining and it has everything you could ask for in a fantasy series (ok, although there are dragons in this world they dont feature here) but, political intrigues, amazing action scenes and a whole action filled plot will keep you on your toes the whole time! I really loved it! ❤ ...more
