    One thought on “To Journey in the Year of the Tiger”

    1. It has been some time that I ve read pure fantasy and this is one of the best We start, in the first book, with an on the road, on the quest trope, not very interesting, a little bit boring, a little bit immature and stupidly stubborn, but since it was so very well written I went along And I read, the I wanted to know what will happen next The basic story is deceptively simple a group of people is call in front of the empress a warrior commander, his traveler brother, a scholar and an alchemis [...]

    2. H Leighton Dickinson s To Walk in the Way of Lions Tails from the Upper Kingdom bring to a highly satisfying conclusion the action packed an emotionally wrenching quest began in the To Journey in the Year of the Tiger Tails from the Upper Kingdom With fantasy, and especially Indie fantasy, standard plot lines are often followed into clich land, but not so with this novel Dickinson perfectly handled the writer s task of giving the reader what they want, but still surprising me, the reader.Like th [...]

    3. Now, what to make of this book It gets one extra star for the rich story it tells and one extra for its cat protagonists, but truth be told, there were so many missing or misspelled words not the ones from the artificial language or language shift created for the novel , missing letters or spaces, missing or wrong punctuation marks in the version I read, it made me really sad because it distracted me a great deal while reading and it took away from the brilliance of the tale There is so much pot [...]

    4. It s hard to find fantasy from new writers that isn t trying to clone previously successful series, but this delightful series by H Leighton Dickson proves to blaze its own trail as it relates the story of a band of anthropomorphic cats lions, cheetah, tiger, leopards, etc undertake a quest to solve a deadly mystery that threatens their Empire Dickson s characters are what keep this story moving, and I definitely connected with her dysfunctional family along their lengthy journey.Books base on f [...]

    6. I had no idea what to expect going into this book It s fantasy, a genre I rarely read It was also self published, and those can go either way But I was promised talking cats and swordfighting women, so I took a risk.It did not disappoint It s hard to describe without giving away plot points, but for such a plot heavy book, all 6 main characters are well developed The romance is a little cliche, in the sense that there are three men and three women, and it becomes apparent from relatively early o [...]

    7. I love big cats and I will not lie OK, a little too lighthearted for Book 1 from Tails of the Upper Kingdom series but I couldn t resist.Dickson has created a fantastic world full of court intrigue, perilous journeys, unrequited love, magics light and dark and shocking revelations And, of course, cats Really big cats Lions, tigers, ocelots, jaguars all standing upright doing all the things humans do and Love, hate, war, bigotry, making stupid societal codes and searching for enlightenment With [...]

    8. My review is 4.5 stars than anything The knock down of half a star is purely because some grammar and spelling issues that I couldn t ignore The way this universe was spun was so intriguing to me and fascinating I m so glad that I bought the second book when I got the first one I need to start the next one ASAP for sure Kerris is by far my favourite character and my least favourite has to be the Alchemist She s suspicious and untrustworthy to me Fallon is a fantastic character And I m glad she [...]

    9. 4 stars is me being a little harsh The book isn t perfect the glue in the spine isn t very strong, there are some typos, some places in the book imply backstory that feels important but you don t actually find out what the story is But the plot and characters are fantastic Kerris is easily one of my favourite fictional characters period I m actually pretty pissed off that I have to be up early tomorrow I m dying to crack open book 2.

    10. Wow, what a refreshing read This is really a break from the books I have been reading and it was really refreshing A true fantasy novel for fantasy lovers I highly recommend this book to fantasy readers Take a break from reality and fall into the world of the Upper Kingdom where Lions rule and tigers, cheetahs, and leopards are second class citizens.

    11. An amazing starting book to a very promising series, the premise of anthropomorphic big cats as samurai like warriors intrigued me to read Strong plot with very good twists throughout, very likeable characters, strong atmosphere and great use of culturalism I can t wait to meet the author when she visits my library in Oct.

    12. To Journey in the Year of the Tiger is a tale about honour, love, racial boundaries, discovery of self and the world, all while the shadow of death looms nearby Something, or someone, is killing the Empresses Council of Seers those with the best talent with the gift of vision and far sight In response to these deaths, the Empress sends a diversely skilled group to uncover the truth, bring the killings to a stop, and punish whoever is responsible To Journey in the Year of the Tiger is the first b [...]

    13. Originally published at West Coast Book Reviews.I finished reading To Journey in the Year of the Tiger a couple of weeks ago and found it hard to sit down and write a review It should be easy, considering how very much I adore this book but then again, that could be what makes it such a challenge to find the right words Now that I m half way through the second book, To Walk in the Way of Lions, I have a good idea what to say.I ve never read anything like this The idea of big cats living in the h [...]

    14. This review has been adapted a bit from my blog.I picked this book up because it promised anthropomorphic cat people amid a mixed Asian cultural setting, which is a bit different than what I ve been getting into lately Gotta admit, though, I love foreign settings, especially those set in Asia, and regularly go about collecting anything about that culture in this genre that I can find Reading Journey was much like watching an anime, or playing a JRPG All the usual characters are there the perky g [...]

    15. I d probably give this 3.8 stars not quite a 4 This was very good for a self published book I really liked the worldbuilding, characters, and storyline in this book I can t think of another book I ve read like this very original I loved the futuristic world of cat people that still had some things there from the past world I loved the characters, and thought they were very well designed.But of course, there were a few problems I didn t like how the characters had European sounding names like Ker [...]

    16. Excellent journey, enjoy the rideVery reminiscent of guy gavriel kay and under heaven, in a semi fictional realm that s maybe adjacent to ours As other reviews state it s a mix of China, Japan and India with maybe Switzerland Strong characters, good action and compelling world building To be honest the only reason I didn t give it 5 stars was the personal annoyance of trying to match it to real world geography.

    17. TJYT is now one my favorite fantasy booksI really liked To Journey in the Year of the Tiger, because it was influenced by Asian cultures, unlike most fantasy books It was pretty surprising that the anthropomorphic cats, monkeys, and dogs were genetically created by humans thousands of years earlier, when humanity suffered from near extinction.I really liked the blend of fantasy, post apocalypse, and a little sci fire.

    18. FascinatingLove the concept of cat ppl Author had drawn me in with the 1st chapter Adding a modern day mystery was the icing on the cake forgive me for cutting this review short I have book 2 waiting and I am anxious to see where this Author takes me.

    19. In a field so often swamped by Tolkien clones, what a refreshing change this book is The premise a feudal Asiatic civilisation in which anthropomorphic cats occupy different castes based on race lions, tigers, etc is intriguing in itself On this foundation, the author builds a richly described world of heroic fantasy, with a hard science fiction concept at its core That amalgam can be difficult to pull off, but Dickson does it well In fact, the cross genre tension drives the plot and unfolds the [...]

    20. Very Interesting, Not A Shifter Story but Shifter ish Most will enjoy this different type of shifter story They are animals that walk on two legs, have the powers of their type of animal than someone who changes back and forth from animal to human But I would love to continue this story to see what happens to everyone Who is killing the seers Where is Solomon from Will they find him What is it between the captain and his twin besides their different colors What of the cat women Three different [...]

    21. I downloaded To Journey in the Year of the Tiger, book 1 of the Upper Kingdom series, as a free book from A beautifully written story with excellent imagery This Shogun meets Planet of the Apes, errrr Cats, story was brilliantly done Lots of interesting sub plots, twists and turns, and backstabbing to keep the reader on the edge of his her seat I really enjoyed the story Book one doesn t end the storyline, but there is so much packed it, you won t feel shortchanged budget for the next book, as y [...]

    22. Good BookThe writing is excellent, but the story was bland The story started off very well, but unfortunately couldn t keep up with detailed action There were brief bright spots, but unfortunately much plotting stage setting items Much of the action took place in a disappointing third party manner.

    23. I won this book through the FirstReads Program in exchange for an honest review.You know how you shouldn t judge a book by it s cover Well this book has an absolutely stunning cover and the book itself doesn t disappoint.First there s the setting We re on Earth, somewhere in the future, long enough that men have evolved into catsor cats have evolved into the dominant raceor maybe there s some genetic manipulation going on, we don t know as it seems all that has been forgotten The location is som [...]

    24. It was with great hesitation that I picked up To Journey in the Year of the Tiger I, of course, kept an open mind, keeping the possibility that I would enjoy the story, but I was worried, mainly due to past experiences with self published fantasy Thankfully, I ended up enjoying Dickson s novel quite a bit.The story takes place in a medieval Asian world ruled by humanoid cats Aspects of this world are borrowed extensively from Chinese culture, but the author also takes from Japanese and Indian cu [...]

    25. This book has an intriguing premise A society of anthropomorphic felines based on an amalgam of Asian cultures Throw in some human efforts at surviving some mysterious catastrophe and both tech and evolution gone awry and you should have the elements of an interesting story And it was, for the most part The thing that disappointed me was a story that began as a 5.8 on my fiction scale became a 3.5 by the end of the book see my profile for an explanation of the fiction scale The mystery and the q [...]

    26. Beautiful storyImagery was great, world building interesting as well as characters with secrets Will read second book to see what happens Kirin is a man of his society.

    27. To define To Journey in the Year of the Tiger in one word i would choose Poetic I read a lot of fantasy, but not many of then have the feel of this book.The world building was very well made Keeping some things hidden and hinting on others.The main characters are deep developed, somehow even the scenario background characters that don t say a word the entire book transmit some form of personality.But in my reading there was an extra character the mountains These felt truly majestic.

    28. I decided not to finish this While not a bad book though a bit slow moving there were a few plot elements that I find personally annoying view spoiler Obvious villain doing bad things while all the good guys are oblivious mind control powers not withstanding hide spoiler Rigidly class based and bigoted against mixed breed society view spoiler Highly prejudiced and abusive guard continuing to be in charge of the person they need to keep alive, with hints that this becomes a romance hide spoiler W [...]

    29. I received a copy of this book for free through First ReadsI honestly have no words to describe how fantastic this story is or how much I loved it The main characters were very well developed, the story made sense, and it was just all around a wonderful fantasy novel Can t wait to read the rest of the series
