I feel that this story written by JC Nelson rather than JC Kang really adds to the allure and mystery of the Tivara Legends. We have often read in previous books about the toxins used both in the floating blossom world and in the courts of the Emperor, so this very learned book gives us not only further knowledge into the making of toxins and, the balance the toxin masters must reach in order to be more effective, but also a look behind the scenes so to speak, at the treachery and deceit so many ...more

An exceptional story. Bolin is the eyes, ears of the Emperor. Unfortunately someone is an expert in poisons and he has to discover who it is. There are traitors lurking. A book that is worthwhile to read.

JC Nelson is a new author for me, but Im a huge fan of JC Kang and I think I have read everything he had published. His fictional world of Tivara is what convinced me that Asia-centric fantasy as much better than the Euro-centric novels Ive always loved. Its a fantastic place recognizable to anyone who knows anything about Shōgun Era Japan, or at least the mythological version of it (complete with super-assassin ninjas and geisha who are so much more than expected) merged with the magic and ...more

Shelves: fantasy
Set in J C Kangs world of Tivara, Venom of the Black Lotus takes us far deeper into the Black Lotus Clans inner workings, and in particular their Poison Masters.
Ive read most of the Tivara books, and adore the intricate and believable world building, which spans a vast timescale. This book is a welcome addition, exposing yet more Clan training methods, and taking us places we havent been before. The plot is solid, and although not written by Kang himself, the characters (and the world) behave in

A behind the scenes to the Black Lotus Clan. An Amazing addition to the Legends of Tivara

This story enhances the world of Tivara as it gives us a deep dive on the poisons masters of the black lotus clan. The world and the way things plays out is fascinating, adding more depth and more colors to an already amazing world. Since this book was written by JC Nelson, rather than JC Kang its usual to be confronted in times with a different writing style, but this doesnt in any way hurt the story, but

Nelson has based his story in the world of J.C. Kangs Tivara. I have loved all of Kangs stories and this one fits right in with the world he created. Nelsons characters are well written and the story is interesting. The mindset of the potion masters and intrigue of spies makes a compelling mix. The main character, Bolin, also experiences a growth of spirit which I thought was a good touch. I like to see characters develop and shape their environment.
I received this book as an ARC and wished to

Great book! Such a surprise to see into the working of the world of the masters of venom and the the making of them. I love this world that IS Kang has created in the Legends of Tivara. I am glad that others love it,too,enough to pay tribute to it by writing their own story in that world.

J.C.Kang is a fairly new author for me, I found 1 of his books about a year ago and he has quickly become 1 of my favorite authors, I look forward to reading anything he writes, this book is amazingly good
