Review:

The Orchid Farmer’s Sacrifice is an action-packed, edge of your seat story that will make you fall in love with a character on one page only to break your heart the next when they are slaughtered. There are no safe characters, and you never know what is going to happen. In this way, I could not put the book down. I felt drawn in needing to know who was going to make it…. what in the world the red crest was… who was the real villain.. and so much more. There were a few times I was shocked by a death and had to put the book down to process. This is definitely not for the faint of heart, it is a war story that holds nothing back.

The plot itself was slightly confusing for me… I am still unsure if I exactly know what the red crest does and really is. However, since this is a series I assume the next book will probably clear up any questions some may have. Some twists I could see coming, but than there were a few that completely took me by surprise.

There is a slight enemies to lovers romance, but it is really a footnote in the book not a main point. I will not give the name of the interest,, but I find her to be my favorite character. She is hardcore and will get whatever job done she is trying to accomplish. I definitely want more about her.

Overall, I enjoyed the story and if you like war novels, Asian culture, and a no holds barred approach to violence and death this is the book for you. I found it a fast read and look forward to the next book.. especially after the cliff hanger ending that stunned me.
