I loved this book it was very well written, the story was vey good, I don't agree with previous reviewer about Lan thinking too much of himself as a girl. Upon reading the book the reasons why he refers about himself as a girl become very understandable to the plot and I can guarantee this is a full m/m love story. This book is worth every penny and has become one of my favorites.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback. Report this reviewThank you, this review has been flagged.

The Last Concubine started out with an interesting premise: a (male) princess named Lan'xiu offered to the great General Hui Wei. Hui Wei has many concubines in his palace, and Lan'xiu is his latest addition. The story sets a good pace, but it just didn't really "click" with me as a reader.
My first issue with the story is that Lan'xiu feels a bit too in-tuned with his feminine self. So much that he refers himself as a "she" to the point that the story doesn't feel like M/M romance anymore. The plot itself is pretty linear and doesn't lead to much surprises. The "good" characters are likeable and the bad ones are despicable. Nothing too complicating here.
Regardless, The Last Concubine is an "okay" book. I wouldn't read it a second time, but it's a nice and simple story that many people will probably enjoy.
