Bringing her complex Poppy War trilogy to a poignant conclusion, Kuang shines a searing light on the devastating price and valiant sacrifices that warfare requires of all involved.--Booklist (starred review)
An incredible end to this epic trilogy. Mixing historical parallels of Chinese history, the themes of war, politics, and colonialism are balanced with terrific, flawed characters and amazing worldbuilding.--Library Journal (starred review)
A dark and devastating conclusion that transcends its roots in historical fact to examine brutal truths.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
It feels nostalgic, wistful even ... The Burning God is the best-written book of the trilogy ... This place and this protagonist are singular in fantasy literature.--Book Marks
A wholly unique experience.--Washington Post on The Poppy War
"Kuang's Poppy War series, the saga of a young shaman fighting to bring the old gods back to her homeland, comes to a striking close in this gritty finale." --Publishers Weekly
