The Ascent to Godhood (Tensorate, #4)
The Protector is dead.For fifty years, the Protector ruled, reshaping her country in her image and driving her enemies to the corners of the map. For half a century the world turned around her as she built her armies, trained her Tensors, and grasped at the reins of fate itself. Now she is dead. Her followers will quiver, her enemies rejoice.But in one tavern, deep in rebel territory, her greatest enemy drowns her sorrows. Lady Han raised a movement that sought the Protector's head, yet now she can only mourn her loss. She remembers how it all began, when the Protector was young, not yet crowned, and a desperate dancing girl dared to fall in love with her.

    Yang’s Tensorate series continues to surprise and delight and this latest entry is no exception. The silkpunk world of the Protectorate is extremely rich and full of personality and I loved the way this novella is structured; with the reader hearing one side of a conversation as the narrator drowns their sorrows at a bar. This stand-alone story serves as a prequel to the others in the series and provides interesting background to one of the chief antagonists of the saga. J.Y.

I cannot recommend this series enough! 4.5 stars.Tor.com Quest: 21/136
