Warrior by Ellen Oh, founder of #WeNeedDiverseBooks, will appeal to action-fantasy fans of Ranger's Apprentice, Eon, and Marie Lu's Legend series! With a strong heroine, romantic intrigue, and mythical creatures, such as a nine-tailed fox demon and a goblin army, Kira, the yellow-eyed demon slayer who protected her kingdom in Prophecy, is back--and her dramatic quest is far from over. Kira has valiantly protected her kingdom--and the crown prince--and is certain she will find the second treasure needed to fulfill the Dragon King's prophecy. After finishing Ellen's first novel, Prophecy, School Library Journal said they were "ready for a sequel." Well . . . here it is! Filled with ancient lore and fast-paced excitement, this page-turning series is one riveting adventure!

Prophecy was a book that felt like it ended nicely and I wasn't sure what to expect with Warrior. I knew there were more objects I find and in this case, the journey that Kira takes is one full of turmoil. I love journey adventure books and this one was no exception. Except I was completely overwhelmed with the culture phrases and words. Since I was on the e-ARC there was no glossary to help me.
I liked how the story moved and was paced properly but I just wanted something more. Maybe there was a lack of relationship building between the characters. What blossomed between Kira and Love Interest was sudden and unexpected since I thought of them as being such good friends. It would have worked well without the romance only because I know how focused Kira is on her tasks and her need to protect her family, especially the young king. I loved the action scenes, Ellen Oh definitely knows how to write them. I love the world, and the setting and how brutal the villain King is. There's a death that I also felt that was needed. Only because it's one of those books where you know that they can't get any guidance from older characters. The young cast needs to go at it alone!
An ongoing tale of adventure and survival, Warrior is a great addition to the Dragon King Chronicles!

This is book 2 in the â??Dragon King Chroniclesâ??, and kicks off a few days after the end of book 1 â??Prophecyâ??.
**Warning â?? some unavoidable spoilers for book 1 â??Prophecyâ??.**
Kira has found the first of the treasures that marks her as the Dragon Musado, and saved her cousinâ??s life countless times, but now she has more problems.
Daimyo Tomodoshi is planning to build a new army, filled with soldiers half-human and half-demon, in an effort to once again overthrow the throne, and take over the world, and itâ??s up to Kira to stop him.
Can Kira find the second sacred treasure? Can she continue to keep her cousin safe? And what will it take to become the Dragon Musado?
This was an interesting sequel, and there was once again quite a lot of adventuring and action.
Kira again didnâ??t act like a lady in this book, and continued to fight like a warrior. She continued to protect her cousin, no matter what, and battled bravely for what she felt was right. I did think that she maybe didnâ??t catch on to some things as quick as she should have done, but overall she got the job done. I was surprised by her reaction to her former fiancÃ©e though, especially considering that he was proved to be a traitor in book 1.
The storyline was okay, and it was pretty much a given that Kira would be searching for the second sacred treasure. This once again involved a lot of adventuring and danger, and once again Kira showed that she had the skills necessary to be the Dragon Musado.
There were some twists and turns in this, and I thought that the use of visions to guide Kira on her path was done well. I did begin to feel a little bored towards the end, but overall the story was enjoyable.
The ending was okay, although we were left with a bit of a cliff-hanger, unlike in the first book. For me though it was pretty obvious what was going to happen at the end though as the prophecy basically spelled it out!
Overall; a good YA fantasy sequel.
6.5 out of 10.
