    1. January 14, 2018:Hello lovely readers! I never visit my books' pages anymore, since these should be safe spaces for readers to share whatever they think and I 100% respect that. Thank you for telling others what you think, no matter what review or rating you leave, because you took time out of your day to do so. I appreciate it!In that spirit, I am just here quickly to share my excitement about KINGDOM OF THE BLAZING PHOENIX with you! The book comes out in October, and we don't have a cover or [...]

    2. I already need to read this. I feel like 2018 is already too far away. Cover and info needed pleaseeeeee———-We have a title!

    3. Predictions: (view spoiler)[1) White Jade is Snow White2) Akira's son is the prince 3) Wei is the hunter who lets White Jade go4) The price Xifeng pays is that she can't have kids. (hide spoiler)]

    4. I have to know what happens, I am absolutely in love with Forest of a Thousand Lanterns and Xifeng.Maybe not such realistic snakes on the cover though, yes?

    5. AHHHHHHH the blurb!!!! I hope in the end Jade and Xeifeng become friends and burn the world together!!!!! NOW GIMME THE BOOK NOW______________Call me crazy but I want to know more about White Jade then Xifeng. I can't stop thinking where this would go.

    6. I received an early copy of this, and I can confirm you are in for a treat. This is an epic sequel that succeeds in being both really different from book 1, but also comfortably familiar. There's lots to love here, from seeing where each character in book 1 ends up after 15 years, to exploring the incredible world of Feng Lu, to the gut-wrenching ending. A thrill ride of a read. Don't miss this series!

    7. Maybe? Coming out next year. I am curious about what will happen next to Xifeng, but I'd love it if she doesn't have to kill anybody in the next book. I know she's an anti-heroine, which is not my favorite, but she's well-drawn in her complexity.

    8. I am lucky to have read an early version of Julie's Kingdom of the Blazing Phoenix (book 2 of Forest of a Thousand Lanterns). This story takes place 15 years later, and told from Jade's POV (the princess, who is good and earnest). She and her lovable merry band of comrades go on an epic, unforgettable, imaginative, magical journey quest to save the kingdom from the horrors of the Empress. Julie's trademark lush descriptions, gorgeous world, and vivid imagination are all there in this exciting se [...]

    9. I finished this in less than 24 hours! What a beautiful follow up and conclusion to the Rise of the Empress series. Full review TK

    10. I had the opportunity to read an early draft of KINGDOM and loved it. It is nothing like FOREST, but totally familiar at the same time. I was so excited to see Xifeng again and wasn’t disappointed at her first scene. While I still love Xifeng, I was completely rooting for Jade, KINGDOM’s heroine. If you liked FOREST, you’ll really enjoy KINGDOM!
