The Poppy War
- A Novel
- By: R. F. Kuang
- Narrated by: Emily Woo Zeller
- Length: 18 hrs and 57 mins
When Rin aced the Keju - the Empire-wide test to find the most talented youth to learn at the Academies - it was a shock to everyone: to the test officials, who couldn’t believe a war orphan from Rooster Province could pass without cheating; to Rin’s guardians, who believed they’d finally be able to marry her off and further their criminal enterprise; and to Rin herself, who realized she was finally free of the servitude and despair that had made up her daily existence. That she got into Sinegard - the most elite military school in Nikan - was even more surprising.

This book is dark, gripping, and intense. It's like no other book I have read/listened to and I was very impressed with the narrator. Can't wait for the next book!!!
