Hello Gemmies! I have a new cover reveal for you today. Strike The Zither by Joan He is a new young adult fantasy and the first book in the Kingdom of Three series. This dazzling new fantasy is a powerful, inventive, and sweeping fantasy reimagining of the Chinese classic tale of the Three Kingdoms. I am so excited to read this book and cannot wait for it to come out!
The year is 414 of the Xin Dynasty, and chaos abounds. A puppet empress is on the throne. The realm has fractured into three factions and three warlordesses hoping to claim the continent for themselves.
But Zephyr knows it’s no contest.
Orphaned at a young age, Zephyr took control of her fate by becoming the best strategist of the land and serving under Xin Ren, a warlordess whose loyalty to the empress is double-edged―while Ren’s honor draws Zephyr to her cause, it also jeopardizes their survival in a war where one must betray or be betrayed. When Zephyr is forced to infiltrate an enemy camp to keep Ren’s followers from being slaughtered, she encounters the enigmatic Crow, an opposing strategist who is finally her match. But there are more enemies than one―and not all of them are human.
Published by Roaring Brook Press, Strike The Zither is set to release on October 25, 2022, and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know what you think by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
