The Warrior & The Flower

Welcome to my stop on the tour for The Warrior & the Flower by Camille Picott.  This is an adult high fantasy.

To celebrate Chinese New Year the tour is running Jan. 27th-31st with mostly reviews and only a few interviews and spotlight posts.  Be sure to check out the tour page with additional info and list of tour stops.

The Warrior & the Flower by Camille Picott

Yi, a retired soldier, has lost everything he loves—his wife, his daughter, and his home. He seeks refuge from his heartache by plunging into a secret mission for the World Emperor. The assignment takes him to the doorstep of a brothel, where he witnesses the madam beating a young girl. Drawn by the child’s striking resemblance to his lost daughter, Yi rushes to her defense and negotiates for her purchase—after all, how hard can it be to care for one little girl? But between the child’s inquisitive nature and the dangerous secret she carries, he gets more than he bargained for.

About the Author: 
Camille Picott is a fifth-generation Chinese American. She writes science fiction and fantasy books with Asian characters and/or Asian settings. Camille grew up reading speculative fiction stories largely devoid of Asian characters and culture. This, coupled with a passion for her heritage, is the reason she strives to bring some aspect of Eastern myth, legend, culture, and ethnicity to all of her writings. To visit Camille, go to

My Review:  January 2014   ~ Review Copies ~

The Warrior & The Flower (3 Kingdoms #1)The Warrior & The Flower by Camille Picott
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

First, I would like to thank the author Camille Picott for giving me this book for an honest review. I enjoyed reading this story, the characters are well developed, the main two characters are very believable, and I couldn't help but love them. I haven't read the other books in the series, and this is my first book by Camille Picott, but now I have her on my tbr list and feel I have to go back and read the other books in the series.

  1. This is actually the first in the series and the only one out so far, so you can follow along as they release! The novella listed on amazon is actually just an excerpt from this one, so don't let it confuse you (it confused me at first too). I'm so glad you loved this! Thanks so much for hosting a tour stop and sharing your thoughts!

  2. 5 star review...Very nice! Happy Chinese New Year. What is your Chinese horoscope animal?

  3. Thanks for your review! Glad you enjoyed the story!
