Rebel Fire

By Ann Sei Lin

The second in a pacy, lyrical and vivid fantasy adventure trilogy set in a world of flying ships, sky cities and rebel uprisings.

Kurara and her shipmates have escaped the grasp of the princess, whose wish to command them as her own human shikigami would be a fate worse than death. Travelling through the forests and across the seas of Mikoshima, they have set a course for the Grand Stream, where their old airship – and old enemies – await. Both parties seek the greatest paper creature of all, the legendary Suzaku, who could hold the key to releasing all shikigami from their eternal bonds. But who will reach it first – and will their hopes be saved, or destroyed?

Customer reviews


'5 stars! Some of the absolute best fantasy out there. It’s origami magic with the most picturesque and yet terrifying settings. I’d give a lot of money to be able to do even 2 of the cool things Kurara can do. Ann Sei Lin has such a way with fantasy and worldbuilding that you’re instantly transported to her exquisite world.' NetGalley Reviewer

'It steps into the void of books aimed at 12-15 year olds. It is full of an epic adventure through the world.' NetGalley Reviewer

'This is a beautifully imagined world. This writer is very talented. This book was interesting, exploring themes of morality, slavery and the responsibility of power. The Japanese culture is as vivid and intriguing as it was in the last book. The characters are interesting and the plot is twisty. [...] This author has so much offer and I look forward to reading the next book in this series.' NetGalley Reviewer
