Book Review - The Queen's Council #2 Feather and Flame

The Queen's Council #2 Feather and Flame

About the Book

In Mulan Feather and Flame the war is over. Now a renowned hero, Mulan spends her days in her home village, training a militia of female warriors. The peace is a welcome one, and she knows it must be protected.

When Shang arrives with an invitation to the Imperial City, Mulan’s relatively peaceful life is upended once more. The aging emperor decrees that Mulan will be his heir to the throne. Such unimagined power and responsibility terrifies her, but who can say no to the Emperor?

As Mulan ascends into the halls of power, it becomes clear that not everyone is on her side. Her ministers undermine her, and the Huns sense a weakness in the throne. When hints of treachery appear even amongst those she considers friends, Mulan has no idea whom she can trust.

But the Queen’s Council helps Mulan uncover her true destiny. With renewed strength and the wisdom of those that came before her, Mulan will own her power, save her country, and prove once again that, crown or helmet, she was always meant to lead. This fierce reimagining of the girl who became a warrior blends fairy-tale lore and real history with a Disney twist.

My Take on the Book
This was a fun new way to look at Mulan and the power she holds in empowering other women and working with them to fight. Beyond this though, she has to look to take over as Empress of China and deal with all that this means. She has to manage political power and people that are not in favor of her role and figure out who she can trust, which is not an easy task. Overall, this was an amazing story and for anyone that loves Mulan, you will also love this book! Highly recommend to all!
