Staff Reviews

Gods walk amongst men in this enormous undertaking of a novel set in Ken Liu's newest fantasy world. The islands of Dara have been under rule by a harsh king for far too long and now the people are rebelling. Written in a prose-like style, The Grace of Kings feels like a dramatic re-telling of historical events with good guys and villains aplenty. Best of all, Liu is planning to make this in to a trilogy!

— From Mikala's Picks


Two men rebel together against tyranny--and then become rivals--in this first sweeping book of an epic fantasy series from Ken Liu, recipient of Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards. "A magnificent fantasy epic" (NPR).

Wily, charming Kuni Garu, a bandit, and stern, fearless Mata Zyndu, the son of a deposed duke, seem like polar opposites. Yet, in the uprising against the emperor, the two quickly become the best of friends after a series of adventures fighting against vast conscripted armies, silk-draped airships, and shapeshifting gods. Once the emperor has been overthrown, however, they each find themselves the leader of separate factions--two sides with very different ideas about how the world should be run and the meaning of justice.

Fans of intrigue, intimate plots, and fast-paced action will find a new series to embrace in the Dandelion Dynasty.
