A book that promotes equality and is set on a post-apocalyptic world. The people pilot giant metal robots. After the protagonist’s sister dies in a prologue, the protagonist Wu Zetian makes it her mission to kill the person who did it. In this world, girls are expected to offer themselves as concubine pilots to the men as a sacrifice. Wu seeks to topple this. However, once she does, she is declared an Iron Widow. After becoming the new Emperor, she finds a horrifying truth. This book truly represents equality for all in a way that shows the female as the “bad-a**” character. It is also interesting with little plot twists hidden here and there.
