The Priority of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon is a newly published compelling fantasy novel. A rich package of witchcraft, dragons, romance, political intrigue, treachery, love, and many more, The Priority of the Orange Tree novel successfully stands out of other best fantasy novels. The characters are the major attraction I find in this story. Each character is distinguished by station, geography, and religion. Simply creating a complex world where East and West are in contrast to each other. East is where dragons are considered divine gods whereas West is where dragons are considered evil and believed they should all be destroyed.
The story follows four narrators; Tane, Ead, Loth, and Niclays, living in different territory (East and West). Just as all other fantasy novels, a set of past events activate these characters into action. They voyage across oceans and kingdoms coming across beasts and pirates, and towards and apart from each other in both metaphorical and physical senses. Moreover, The Priority of the Orange Tree is full of strong women who are taking the stage, fighting, ruling, and shining. Shannon has successfully become able in turning the perspective of the world regarding feminism.
“No woman should be made to fear that she was not enough. A woman is more than a womb to be seeded.”
Another topic that world fuss over making a big issue is what that is contrasted in this fantastic book. Blending the topic regarding LGBT+ like it’s not a big deal/ openly accepting nature, Shannon has been able to elevate this novel into the next level. This novel really is a page-turner. Although it was a long journey of about 800 pages, not even a single page was disappointing. The uniqueness or the fore coming events or the historical mythology keeps on wanting to crave for more.
Regarding the recommendation, I say it is a must-read book if you are a fan of Lord of Rings or any other fantasy novels or if love reading feminism, this is the one for you. The Priority of the Orange Tree by Samantha Shannon totally gives a new experience compared to her other past works.
