Kuni Garu, now known as Emperor Ragin, runs the archipelago kingdom of Dara, but struggles to maintain progress while serving the demands of the people and his vision. Then an unexpected invading force from the Lyucu empire in the far distant west comes to the shores of Dara—and chaos results.

But Emperor Kuni cannot go and lead his kingdom against the threat himself with his recently healed empire fraying at the seams, so he sends the only people he trusts to be Dara’s savvy and cunning hopes against the invincible invaders: his children, now grown and ready to make their mark on history.

it could have been great but devolve in a waste of time

The writing is great. The world-building is intriguing.

The main problem is the lack of editing work. This book is close to 1000 pages long. This could have been stripped down to 400 pages and the whole book have been great. I mean the plot completely change at 50% of the book. I have read comments about the other books and it seems that they have the same problem. I think I will stop there with this series.

The depiction of women and LGTB is kinda of unnerving. The Lyuccu appear to be based on the Mongol invasion and are very one-sided.
