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)
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 dark and devastating conclusion that transcends its roots in historical fact to examine brutal truths.--Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
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
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)
