I knew I was going to be blown away by this book, but I had no idea I was going to be sent into the stratosphere. The Poppy War was already a phenomenal debut, but its successors somehow managed to claw themselves to new heights. The Burning God is no exception. As usual, Kuang holds no punches when it comes to describing the raw horror and consequences of war, drawing her characters to impossibly dark corners where their only escape is through catastrophic decisions. The ending ripped my heart from my chest, but I can’t imagine a more satisfying conclusion for this phenomenal trilogy. A perfect triad of books.
