Intense submitted by zmclaugh on July 12, 2018, 7:29pm An intense book that pulls from bits of the Second Sino-Japanese War and places them in a fantasy setting.

THE POPPY WAR delivers fantasy & war novel submitted by chuntoon on June 15, 2019, 11:38am Wild turns, brutal (in the right way), absolutely compelling — the kind of fantasy that reminds you to check your own understanding of the “real” world.

Amazing fantasy, undercurrents and currents of war, great characters submitted by redmuse on August 15, 2021, 10:17am Best book I've read in a long time, hits all the points. Highly recommended.
