Publisher's Summary

The epic, can’t-miss follow-up to the New York Times best-selling Avatar: The Last Airbender: The Rise of Kyoshi.

Kyoshi’s place as the true Avatar has finally been cemented - but at a heavy cost. With her mentors gone, Kyoshi voyages across the Four Nations, struggling to keep the peace. But while her reputation grows, a mysterious threat emerges from the Spirit World. To stop it, Kyoshi, Rangi, and their reluctant allies must join forces before the Four Nations are destroyed irreparably. 

This thrilling follow-up continues Kyoshi’s journey from a girl of humble origins to the merciless pursuer of justice still feared and admired centuries after becoming the Avatar.

Great! One strange flaw.

Written very well especially in the action scenes. the storyline was a little 2020 though for a setting that supposedly is placed in history, generic love story between two females that somehow was easily accepted by all parties in this time frame doesn't make sense. The Author could have made the love between Kyoshi and Rangi more of a struggle which would have added realism to the time setting and a sense of reader satisfaction when they overcame the conflict and showed the world they were meant for eachother. Other than that I love the series so far!

Excellent Prequel, but missing...

Both Avatar The Last Airbender and Legend of Korra had seasons of exciting stories to share and grow the world around them. Shadows of Kyoshi gives every bit of that but leaves behind the “heart” of the animated series, thus this book and the previous lack the goofy humor and irreverent moments of fun to replace them with the seedy underside of people and places. While this marks this series to stand out on its own, the too few moments of fun and levity drags out the action and drama. A good story but I wish it was more.

A great addition the the avatar universe!!!!

This book is Amazing! The depth and tone of this series takes the avatar universe into an amazingly serious and fantastic journey. I absolutely recommend reading/listening to this book. It expands the lore of the avatar universe and gives the character of Kyoshi a humanizing/relatable personality. I only hope they either do more with a Kyoshi’s story after this or continue with more novels about other avatars. Nancy Wu does a fantastic job giving these characters their voices. An amazing performance. 5/5 review. Please if you love avatar you need to share this journey.

Starts off good then dies.

I really enjoyed the 1st Book and was excited to start this one. It starts off rather good and then about halfway through It just stalls out. I really struggled to finish this. I seriously contemplated stopping but figured I had invested so much time I might as well finish. There were no great surprises in the ending it all played out exactly like I predicted at the beginning. The only thing that was nice was the epilog. I would not recommend this book total waste of time.

Woke garbage

I was quite excited by this audiobook! I am a huge fan of all things Avatar, and Kiyoshi was always a favorite of mine. Her strength and stature remind me of my wife. However, the story is very poor, and more over is a disgusting usage of an incredible story to shove woke propaganda into young minds. It follows the philosophy of corrupt them while they are young. A HORRIBLE addition to the Avatar world.

Strong Sequel

The plot and supporting characters weren’t quite as captivating as the first book, but it was a strong sequel overall. If you enjoyed the first book and want more of the Kyoshi story, get it. If you weren’t feeling the first book, you probably won’t like this one either.

Great emerging author

It was an easy read, grabs your attention quickly and never lets go.

As a big fan of the series, It's seamlessly fits within the Canon.

Aggravated

I really don't like the way some writers use inaction to build tension. Kyoshi spends every fight she's in standing by and watching things happen even to the deaths and injuries of her friends. The first book was forgivable because she was just figuring herself put but at this late of date? Its a ploy to build drama that doesn't fit the character or story line.
