5.0 out of 5 starsBetter than book 1
Reviewed in the United States on November 24, 2020
As Earth is firmly ensconced as an integral planet of the Dragon Empire, Jian Choumali takes on many battles, loves and royal skirmishes to save the Empire from Cat menance. Also featuring endless Marque, Dragon and royal family drama, this book is a bit of everything I like in a sci-fi thriller. Bonus points for being a strong social message driven tome talking about the lives of people in ENM relationships. Thank you for this amazing work, Kylie Chan and can't wait to read the next one.
Continuing Kylie Chan’s unique story, Guardian of Empire is a fun, gender fluid, love fluid romp among the stars. And dragons… So many dragons. (In fact I kinda wish some dragons were on the cover). Those Goldenscales sound utterly delightful. And from folding to gate travel… this is a terrific science fiction to become immersed in.
The Empire’s war with the Cats reaches its peak, and humans are the target. Main character Jian is dealing with her children, her love life, her career and everything in between. A story of betrayal and lies is at the heart of this novel. Who can Jian trust? It seems both sides want a piece of her. And it make take losing her family to choose a side.
The world building in this series is extraordinary. The details of the dragon Empire, the Cat homeworld, class distinctions, politics and alien life is well thought out and comprehensibly seeded throughout the story. Truly unique alien lifeforms from telepathic octopus mothers, to energy beings, to insect mating practices… its a fascinating look into the priorities of life unlike our own.
And then there is the concept of death and what it means. If you have the chance to live forever – how do your priorities change? What does it mean for your love life if you can truly be with someone forever? And if you loose them… how do you go on forever without them?
