The Last Empress Reviews

'Tzu Hsi emerges as a canny political leader, and she is a vivid and entertaining character - this is history as it plays upon the emotions. Empires crumble, hearts are broken' Kate Saunders, The Times PRAISE FOR EMPRESS ORCHID: 'Empress Orchid is strong on both sexual chicanery and violent conspiracy ... a fascinating account' Guardian 'An engrossing story ... enhanced by Min's imaginative power ... Like all good novelists, she implies as much as she says, and her characterisation is subtle and worldly-wise' Glasgow Herald 'I loved Empress Orchid ... a riveting read' Judy Finnegan, Woman's Own
