An instant USA Today and New York Times bestseller, F.C. Yee’s Avatar, the Last Airbender:The Rise of Kyoshi delves into the story of Kyoshi, the Earth Kingdom–born Avatar.
Written in consultation with Michael Dante DiMartino, the visionary cocreator and executive producer of Avatar: The Last Airbender and The Legend of Korra animated TV series.
The longest-living Avatar in this beloved world’s history, Avatar Kyoshi established the brave and respected Kyoshi Warriors, but she also founded the secretive Dai Li, which led to the corruption, decline, and fall of her own nation.
The first of two novels based on Avatar Kyoshi in the Chronicles of the Avatar series, The Rise of Kyoshi maps her journey from a girl of humble origins to the merciless pursuer of justice who is still feared and admired centuries after she became the Avatar.
“Yee artfully weaves in political entanglements as well as complex cultural identities to fully immerse readers in Kyoshi's world. . . . An action-packed tale that answers some long-awaited questions; fans will look forward to the promised sequel.”—Kirkus Reviews
