4.5/5.

Probably one of the best prequel/tie-in novels... ever? Yee manages to accomplish that rare feet of telling a new story within an already-built world, playing with the best elements of the universe without devolving to a slavish series of callouts and name-drops. Reminds me of the bygone era of the Expanded Universe, and it's much stronger than any of the ATLA/LoK comic book tie-ins, enjoyable though those are.

Kyoshi's tale is excellent, and I continue to be impressed how this franchise has managed to come up with personalities for Aang and Korra and Kyoshi that all feel unique while also being thematically entwined. The setting was again both familiar and new, distinct from the war-torn Earth of ATLA or the cosmopolitanism of LoK's Republic City; much more the Old or High Republic. We see the Avatar cycle once again crafting new stories from the same mechanic, putting new twists on what are by now familiar tropes.

(Though the Easter Eggs were absolutely appreciated, from the obvious name-drops like the Beifongs to Jinpa's last-page allusion to the White Lotus.)

Minor nitpick - the final apparition of Kuruk was an unnecessary cliffhanger - there was absolutely no need to tease a sequel, and it muddied what would have otherwise been a perfect note for Kyoshi to end on. That's not to say I'm not looking forward to any future books, I just wish that this one had ended about 500 words earlier.

It's such a shame that this franchise's best relationships (with the exception of Suki/Sokka) are shunted off-screen. Very much recommended for any fan of the franchise. ( )

Not a bad book so far, I'm just not in the mood for it right now. Might pick it up again at some point in the future when I'm feeling fantasy more.

I'm a fan of Avatar since it first came out. I was 17 when the last episode aired and since then I've rewatched the series multiple times, I read the comics and I tried to watch the sequel of Korra. I didn't like that last one AT ALL. Not because of the characters or the plot itself but because what they did to the world... because this world, this universe, means A LOT to me.

So, I was nervous about this book. But I really wanted to read it and give it a chance... and I'm glad I did because I really, really liked it!

I was always intrigued by Kyoshi and her story and this is a great origin story for her! Watching the series as an adult (and a gay person) I knew she wasn't straight at all lol and so this book didn't disappoint in that aspect. I wasn't expecting that weird beginning where they didn't know she was the avatar and all, but I liked, it showed that the process of finding them and teach them isn't always perfect or easy. Also, the political climate of the time was very interesting and all the stuff with the daofei was really good.

I liked all the characters of the gang, I was expecting for the whole book for Yun to reapear because spirit world stuff and when he did, I cheered... until he became an (apparently) soulless murderer xD

That and the end itself make me really intrigued for the second book, so I hope I can read it soon!
Oh, and it's not a 5 starts just because I felt like something was missing, I don't know what, but... something, something... I hope the second book has it (?
