‘The Tiger’s Daughter’ by K Arsenault Rivera

K Arsenault Rivera joins Alberto Rios to discuss her debut novel, “The Tiger’s Daughter.”

Written as a letter from one main character to the other, “The Tiger’s Daughter” is the story of an infamous warrior and a spoiled warrior empress who must save their land from a truly insidious evil.

The Hokkaran empire has conquered every land within their bold reach ― but failed to notice a lurking darkness festering within the people. Now their border walls have begun to crumble, and villages are falling to demons swarming out of the forests.

Away on the silver steppes, nomadic tribes retreat and protect their own, having bartered a treaty with the empire. It is up to these two young women, raised together across borders since their prophesied birth, to save the world from the encroaching demons. And in this world, even gods can be slain.
