F. C. Yees The Rise of Kyoshi delves into the story of Kyoshi, the Earth Kingdomborn Avatar. The longest-living Avatar in this beloved worlds history, Kyoshi established the brave and respected Kyoshi Warriors, but also founded the secretive Dai Li, which led to the corruption, decline, and fall of her own nation. The first of two novels based on Kyoshi, The Rise of Kyoshi maps her journey from a girl of humble origins to the merciless pursuer of justice who is still feared and admired centuries after she became the Avatar.

Did I absolutely adore this book my husband picked for us to listen to on long drives? Yes! Do you have to be an Avatar fan to enjoy it? No, but it's even better if you are. This book was such a fun telling of Kyoshi's beginning and what the world of Avatar looked like 300ish years before the show. It's a super fun ride. The characters are delighfup, the action is suspenseful, and the punches are not pulled. #Avatar #TransmediaStories #LGBTQ

My first #NewYearWhoDis read was a fun adventure story. It took me a while to get into it because it‘s a prequel to something I‘m not familiar with, so it‘s developing characters I was already supposed to know. Once I got accustomed to the world I definitely enjoyed this though. Thank you, @jen_the_scribe and @monalyisha !

jen_the_scribe What did you think of Kyoshi? 9mo
IndoorDame @jen_the_scribe I thought the world building was great and I really ended up able to envision the world it was set in. I thought the character building was less strong. There were a ton of characters, and some of them ended up with more fully developed arcs than others, and it didn‘t always make sense to me which. I definitely enjoyed the story and am glad I read it, but I haven‘t decided if I‘m going to continue the series or not. 9mo
jen_the_scribe @IndoorDame I can definitely see why you feel that way. I listened to the next book in the series and I felt exactly how you felt about the first, it was even more slow going. So based on how you felt about the first, you might not enjoy the second one, I think. 9mo
IndoorDame @jen_the_scribe good to know. Thanks! 9mo

This was an awesome listen. It‘s definitely a tad bit more adult than the original ATLA and The Legend of Korra. Learning about Kyoshi‘s backstory was interesting, and she‘s every bit as amazing as I thought she was. I really liked learning who her “masters” were, definitely not what I expected but in the best way. A lot of action, drama, sadness, and tender moments.

A fun book about the girl who becomes the almost myth like Avatar Kyoshi from AtLA and her very humble, but kind of heartbreaking, beginning. Quite the adventure.

4.5/5 I loved it as an ATLA fan, but it's way darker and less comedic. Personally I appreciated it. Strong female characters with growth. As a prequel, the author did an excellent job creating a feeling of trepidation and hopelessness (too much occasionally). The story's moral commentary is left open without a strong answer on purpose. Braver than the shows. Manage expectations for the finale. Sequel added to my to read pile.

Avatar is my guilty pleasure, so when I saw this I had to check it out. It's decent book that stays true to the world. I like the rebel side of Kyoshi compared to the idolized other avatars.

When I received my Audible credit for the month, I just needed to snag this one. I'm obsessed with ATLA and The Legend of Korra. Can't wait to learn more about Kyoshi's background. Anyone else a fan?

Serotonin I have started this series. I‘m still working working on The Promise, etc. Apparently my husband knows the authors of this series 😆 Really nice guy! 2y

I‘m a huge fan of the world of Avatar the Last Airbender and this book did not disappoint. I got this from the library and already reserved the sequel. Kyoshi‘s story is far more complicated than I would have imagined and it made for a great read. If you‘re an Avatar fan I definitely recommend this book.

Finally finished! I love ATLA, and this expansion of the world before Aang was so thrilling. If you‘re an ATLA fan, I would highly recommend this book. I can‘t wait to get to the next one!

I am so pumped for this book! Using it as my pan-Asian book for #booked2020 as Avatar: Last Airbender has always been an awesome look into pan-Asian influences ❤️

Fun, light and easy read. Finished it in a weekend. Will probably pick up the next book in the series.

What a fantastic read! I share this passage because even Avatar Kyoshi had to deal with misogyny. I have really enjoyed exploring the life pre-Avatar Aang and I love getting to come back to the world of bending! Kyoshi is so great and it is definitely not what I was expecting to get. Pretty sure I can count this for #SilkPunk #Spring #Booked2020 given the heavy eastern influences in Avatar. Can‘t wait to read more this summer!

I think it is important that I try to make more time for reading—so instead of Netflix I decided to just read. This is the other book I picked up from the library and I am so excited to be back in the world of Avatar! Kyoshi has always been one of my faves, so it is exciting seeing her early years in book form.

This. Book. We finally have Kyoshi‘s story! She is as much of a badass as I had hoped! The moral ambiguity in the story makes you think too. Insanely good, highly recommend if you love Avatar👍🏻 👍🏻

I LOVED ATLA, so I was a little nervous about this book; it‘s hard to follow a good show. However, the plot is very enticing! Kyoshi lives as a meek servant at a time when someone else has already been identified as the Avatar. When reality hits, Kyoshi doesn‘t take the straight and narrow to become a badass avatar, we know and love (fear?) and I‘m here for it. That cliffhanger has me waiting for 2020!

I loved this book. It was emotional but paced well. Kyoshi being bisexual is a big element. Loved the chosen one isn‘t the chosen one. It made me laugh and cry.
