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

  • Sorry its just not good

    By jk1212
    i know the avatar franchise is a gold mine and many appreciate anything they churn out, but so far nothing has come close to TLA for me, and this is no different. It’s poorly written, drags on without much substance. You’re never hanging off every word, you’re wondering is something going to happen in the next 20 pages?
  • An Avatar for adults

    By Ka Lyn Na
    Seriously amazing story. I'm 30, and was recently introduced to the Avatar world. I've become obsessed. AtLA is charming, LOK has depth, and The Rise of Kyoshi is dark. It's very much an adult story, and it's so well-written. I may have a new favorite Avatar... A live-action, or even animated adult series is all I want from this now.
  • A thrilling, fresh take on another Avatar origin

    By erikandrewerik
    I’m a huge ATLA fan and was hungry for more story after rewatching the series along with Korra. This novel was exactly what I needed. The author does an amazing job at seamlessly growing the ATLA universe as we know it, building on the rich mythologies we’ve learned to love. The pacing was great and characters were all very well-developed. The thrilling action sequences were balanced perfectly with the heartfelt moments of romance and humor (just like the series). I can’t wait to jump into the sequel and hope for more novels that feature other avatars!
  • Beautiful!

    The more I learn about Kyoshi the better she gets!! Amazing pacing of the story and amazing writing, plot lines, villain, goals, and backstories! I absolutely loved this masterpiece (and I love rangi) 10/10 would recommend
