Review: Strike the Zither by Joan He

Title: Strike the Zither

Series: Kingdom of Three #1

Author: Joan He

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.

Stop what you are doing and go and buy this book! It was so good and is one of my best books of 2022 – all the stars!

Let me start off by saying that I didn’t know what a zither was so I looked it up before I started reading and when the significance entered the story I was in awe!!!! It was beautiful, utterly beautiful!

Zephyr is a strategist for a warlordess, Ren and she’s good at what she does. When her plans take her on the wrong side of the war she puts her plans into action. There she also meets fellow strategist, Crow and sparks fly……

There was war, politics, found family, schemes, women working together (and against each other!). It was an action packed masterpiece!

‘May we meet in another life.’
