mob style bullying The book is fantasy not non fiction La Prise de l'Elysée: Les Campagnes Présidentielles de la Ve République or even historical fiction The book might as well be banned burnedr censored I cannot believe that some people s pinions have persuaded the writer to pull the novel Not nly that but Blood Heir was being published by Random House for goodness sake It s not like it hasn t been edited proofed etc Saying that authors can t kill The Ugly Princess off minority charactersr touch n certain subject is absurd Creativity should be about freedom f art in any form as the creator chooses Social media is ut f control and this is a sad day for publishing and free speech Posted afternoon f Jan 30 2019Yes I have an eARC Usually I don t read books months before they are published however due to controversy s I may make an exception here and read this very soon Three things to say in advance 1 many people are upset that a young black girl dies in this story Is this to say we can never have a minority killed ff ever again Cause that seems wrong2 The is zero ZERO proof that the writer is screen capping Harvest to Hydrosol: Distill Your Own Exquisite Hydrosols at Home or listing reviewers who give her poor reviews The rumour is basedne Hunchback on twitter post by some random chick who won t give provide any sources That s not journalism folks It s just flatut ridiculous rumour Don t accuse someone if you don t have at least a shred Buddy of proof and no your word is not worth crapn Twitter sorry but it s not3 The line from LOTR many have mentioned being used in this book has been used by a dozen The Space Child's Mother Goose or fantasyr The Quotable Hitchens from Alcohol to Zionism: The Very Best of Christopher Hitchens other genre booksver the years I don t think you can claim that don t go where I can t follow is so iconic that it can never be used again it s a very symbolic phrase perhaps but I see no reason why this concept can t be revisited many times The Greatest Survival Stories Ever Told: Seventeen Incredible Tales over in literature PS I have NOT yet read Sixf Crows so parallels to it I won t be able to speak to even when I do read this ne Update My favorite book f the year has a new release date You have no idea how disappointed I am to hear that this book will not be getting published People need to stop getting Cómo ligar con esa chica que tanto te gusta y a la que le gusta otro offendedver things This is a fiction book and it was seriously my favorite so far Death Threat of 2019 so I m completely heartbroken that the author felt the need to pull her book becausef bullyingA dark retelling version f Anastasia I m all in I ve read ne ther Anastasia retelling Heart f Iron which was totally different than this ne but both were awesomeAna was my baby monster she could do some pretty amazing things with ther people s blood We get another POV besides her Ramson and Porter Rockwell: A Biography oh boy this young gent had a mind fullf things betrayals a dark past a dark heart with a hint Satire of light hidden in it I loved him And the scenes with him and Anawn my lifeThe writing was so good and the story was an incredible page turner I was so scared Deflower the Boss of another book with a cliffhanger because I ve started so many dang series that endn them and while it is Hebrew magic amulets open ended becausef the second book it isn t the death cliffhanger sentence that I loathe And I ll be ready for book two when it comes Can I also just state that the freaking cover artist deserves a metal for the beautiful cover Instagram Twitter Facebook PinterestIt s impossible to discuss this book without addressing the controversy surrounding it Basically publication was delayed and digital ARCs were pulled after some preliminary readers alleged that there were passages in this book that were according to the articles I read summarizing the issue anti black After a small but vocal minority f people decried this book either vertly Being There or subtextually as being racistr problematic the author took it upon herself to remove the book from circulation and make the necessary edits before resubmitting the bookI have a few thoughts هذه بلادنا: الجواء on thisA lotf people who were talking about this book being racist hadn t actually read the ARC and were just uoting the statements Buddha's Brain: The Practical Neuroscience of Happiness, Love, and Wisdom of the people who had My friend Alice has anriginal copy that she was comparing against the finished copy at the time f my reading this and the final changes aren t even that different from the riginal and don t even seem to be describing traits that are bviously black in my pinion Yes people Witness to the Martyrdom: John Taylor's Personal Account of the Last Days of the Prophet Joseph Smith of color areppressed in this world but it seemed to me that the descriptions in the book were typical f what you might expect to see f someone who was Middle Eastern r maybe Mongolian and not someone who was black which would make sense since this is set in an alternate Russia I m honestly shocked people came at this book so hard when there are ther books that are much problematic that get a free pass not saying either is right but why this book specifically Especially when nobody I saw even seemed to be considering that the PoCs might be Asian and not blackSecond people are saying that the decision to edit was the author s choice and while that is true I don t think that she would have pulled her book if she hadn t been at the epicenter f some pretty ugly allegations and hardcore negative feedback It s the right f people to read and interpret the book as they choose as readers but I also think it s foolish to suggest that this was an isolated event influenced solely by the author s agency and the controversy surrounding the book had no influence The War at Home: One Family's Fight Against PTSD on her decision Should she have pulled it I personally don t think so There s always going to be controversy and if I as an author pulledne f my books every time someone found something problematic in them I d have no active books available for purchase That said I ve also pulled some f my books from publication because I felt like I couldn t really stand behind their uality as an author so it s possible that the feedback did make Zhao second guess herself and want to do betterAnyway let s get into the book BLOOD HEIR is like many books coming ut these days set in a world where magic is suppressed r forbidden with an autocratic kingdom rife with corruption There s a hint f Avatar The Last Airbender in here in that different Affinites have different abilities and some f them ar. Is murdered her world is shattered Framed as his killer Ana must flee the palace to save her life And to clear her name she must find her father’s murderer Ten Thousand Goddam Cattle: A History of the American Cowboy in Song, Story and Verse on herwn But the Cyrilia beyond the palace walls is far different from the Set Theory, Logic and Their Limitations one she thought she knew Corruption rules the land and a greater conspiracy is at workne.
Update So the cover is live Andddd it s time for me to hide and never come n Goodreads again Just kidding Sort fI wanted to share the Dear Reader letter that we included in the ARCs Advanced Reader Copies f BLOOD HEIR It touches upon why I wrote BLOOD HEIR and who I wrote it forDear ReaderFour years ago I began writing a story about a corrupt empire steeped in winter filled with morally gray con men deadly assassins twisted villains and above all a girl named Anastacya who has the power to manipulate blood and who believes she is a monsterIt took me two years to realize that the monster in the story is meI am an immigrant I am a woman f color And I am an Other In my time in the United States I have never experienced the sense The Stringbean Murders of crushing fear about my identity that I have recently Getut أساطير شعبية من قلب جزيرة العرب: الجزء الرابع of my country communist isnly Stricken (Asphalt Cowboys, onef the slurs I ve had screamed at me from across the street What I ve experienced personally and seen across social media The Sporty Game outlets and national television broadcasts has all amounted to a hyperawarenessf my foreignness my Otherness and the possibility that because I am different I am not worthy American Yakuza II of belongingBlood Heir explores the demonizationf the Other and this experience Inventions That Changed the World: Working Wonders of not belonging Ana s journey examines howne can internalize hatred and fear how that can warp Love Onboard: Cupid's Caribbean Cruise one s core and turn it into something cruel and twisted But ultimately her story isne Vertical Mind: Psychological Approaches for Optimal Rock Climbing of self acceptance andf the realization that we cannot change who we are nor what we are born with but we can choose what we do with what we are given And like me Ana chooses to fight for a better tomorrowSo I gave magic to my girls who were told they were monsters I gave my children Blood Love of color the ability to fightppression Because in a world where there is so little I can control I want to put hope and power in their hands for nce and in a world where those deemed different are ften cast ut and made to be monsters I want them to winThank you for readingAm lie Wen Zhao You focused n the battle and lost sight f the war The first three chapters were a solid 5 stars everything after felt like reading a completely different book This was not it chief Firstly this review is not going to talk about r explain the controversy behind this book If you want to know why it got pulled and then set to be re published there are so many great reviews an EDIT Another November 19th 2019 publish What s going n However seeing that the author most likely rewrote parts f the book I m a bit hesitant to read it It almost feels like self censoring I m very conflicted about this My hopes right now I really need a review from someone who had a chance to read the first version EDIT I made the mistake that I went back to Twitter to have a look what s new I should not have done that They are trying to turn this all around and make the two authors who tried to destroy Zhao you know fair competition the victims in this Let me tell you they are not the victims They started this without reading this book Just disclaimer I absolutely disagree if anyone is threatening them That is a wrong thing to do Take the high road in this Say why you disagree with what they did you can get angry I m still angry pledge to never read anything from them DO NOT RATE their books without reading Be better than that but certainly do not attack themOriginal Let me tell you I was excited about this book I still am and I hope it will be published ne day Because even if the author did some wrong in the way she wrote about certain things I would like to see it for myself and create my wn DIY, Dammit!: A Practical Guide to Curse-Free Crafting opinion Thenly good utcome f this controversy is that I ve spent hours reading about slavery in Asia and slavery in the 21st century And let me tell you we need to talk about this issue I wanted to write a nice summary f why I think that the backlash against this author and her unpublished book but I cannot do it without my emotions running high If you want to read I suggest reading this review From Mary S R I think it s absolutely spot n And I could not do a better jobOr if you would like to watch a video I recommend this Civil rights, tool of communist deception one by Francina Simone She did a wonderful job with that videoAnd now I havenly ne thing to say Only a few people read this book and the majority f the backlash came after people read some Cutthroat outtakes written in a review Let me tell you if you go and takenly part from almost any book you can create a controversy You are judging it without seeing the whole picture without reading how the author addressed those scenes You know maybe those scenes were the moment when the MC realised the system was wrong Maybe not But we do not know And now it seems like we won t find An Eastern Orthodox Response to Evangelical Claims out 30 Apr 2019Ladies and gentlemen it s been confirmed BLOOD HEIR WILL BE PUBLISHED This is not a drill I repeat this is not a drill Blood Heir will beut November 19th 2019To the haters I sayAccording to New York Times this is why and how Zhao finally decided to go ahead with publishing Blood Heir if you want to know why it was cancelled scroll down to the Jan 31 update Zhao reread her book several times examining the plot and characters to see if the critics were right She decided they weren tIn March Zhao called her editor at Delacorte Press and told her that she wanted to move forward with the novel after all She made some revisions and Blood Heir is now scheduled to be released in November Ultimately it s true to my vision she saidZhao s decision to move ahead with publication will likely reignite the fractious The Claiming of the Shrew ongoing debate about diversity representation and cancel culture in the young adult literary worldWhile some see the discussion about cultural appropriation in fiction as a necessary if painful step toward addressing the lackf diversity in publishing Summoned others argue that thenline YA community has become too cutthroat even intolerant in its attacks n first time authors who tackle challenging social issues r write utside their immediate cultural experienceAnd here is the author s letter about her decision to publishDear ReadersI m glad to announce that Blood Heir will publish n November 19 2019In writing this novel I researched extensively Baghdad, Mon Amour: A Journey of Exile and Return on the subjectf modern day human trafficking and indentured labor throughout the world and specifically from my heritage It is a practice that thrives Dead Inside on societal complicity and complacency and it is my hope that Blood Heir will confront the silence surrounding this epidemic that continues to affect 45 million victims globallyThrough important dialogue thatccurred recently it became clear to me that my book was being read in a different cultural context than my wn so I decided to take the time to make sure the hallmarks f human trafficking were being incisively drawnI hope to share a new perspective from my background as a Chinese immigrant living in America I am excited for readers to meet my heroine who believes in justice and is ready to fight for it with her wits grit and magic and for them to have a chance to engage in further dialogue about these important social issuesThank you for your supportSincerelyAm lieI am so proud The Taste of Spruce Gum of this community for showing Am lie their support and for speakingut against bullying and I am so so proud f her for staying strong and getting something positive ut f the negativity. In the Cyrilian Empire Affinites are reviled Their varied gifts to control the world around them are unnatural dangerous And Anastacya Mikhailov the crown princess has a terrifying secret Her deadly Affinity to blood is her curse and the reason she has lived her life hidden behind palace walls When Ana’s father the emperor.

a dubious pastf his wnBLOOD HEIR is so dark and has actual stakes There s some truly chilling scenes in here and they re all beautifully written Until about 70% f the story this moves at a break neck pace Then it hits a slow point but recovers in the end which pens the door to a seuel in which I m sure Ana will have to come to terms not just with her powers but also some new and daunting responsibilities BLOOD HEIR is actually a lot like how I had expected books like CHILDREN OF BLOOD AND BONE and THRONE OF GLASS to be nly I thought both A History of Prophecy in Israel, Revised and Enlarged of those sucked whereas thisne was awesomeThis is how you write about Think good thoughts about a pussycat oppressed magic and have a morally grey but kick ass main protagonist who gets shit done and also has a bitf romance One, Two, Three Me on the side but doesn t let herself get distracted by it Ana would certainly never look at a bagf candy left for her by a stranger and think OH BOY
