    ARC provided by the publisher Harper Voyager in exchange for an honest review.Bursting with violence, devastation, death, and profound emotions The Burning God is by far the best book R.F Kuang has written in her career so farHere s a prophecy for you, she d said One will die One will rule And one will sleep for eternity My claim might sound like hyperbole to you, but I can t help it, I m genuinely astounded by how far Kuang has improved in her craft as a storyteller Do not misconstrue ARC provided by the publisher Harper Voyager in exchange for an honest review.Bursting with violence, devastation, death, and profound emotions The Burning God is by far the best book R.F Kuang has written in her career so farHere s a prophecy for you, she d said One will die One will rule And one will sleep for eternity My claim might sound like hyperbole to you, but I can t help it, I m genuinely astounded by how far Kuang has improved in her craft as a storyteller Do not misconstrue my statement, though, I loved both The Poppy War and The Dragon Republic, but The Burning God blew them out of the water it s simply on a higher level of qualityHate was a funny thing It gnawed at her insides like poison It made every muscle in her body tense, made her veins boil so hot she thought her head might split in half, and yet it fueled everything she did Hate was its own kind of fire and if you had nothing else, it kept you warmI won t mention any specifics regarding the story in this review I have contemplated discussing the source of the inspiration behind the conflict in this final installment, mainly Mao Zedong s response to Western imperialism, but I feel that it would be too spoilery for those who don t know I prefer to refrain from ruining your experience If you don t know about Mao Zedong s tyranny, though, I suggest reading about them before or after you ve finished The Burning God, it s up to you That being said, If you do know about Mao Zedong s story, you probably already know the general direction of Rin s story, but rest assured that Kuang hasthan enough ammunition in store to surprise, enthrall, and bleed your heart dry I had a notion of the fate of the main characters, but I totally didn t expect to be enraptured as much as I did The narrative was thoroughly merciless, full of brutal actions, gripping, and unputdownable I m not kidding I read the last 200 pages in one sitting The final 200 pages of this grim novel were truly Kuang at her best I have so many praises for what she achieved within the last few chapters, and yet I m rendered speechless right now Honestly, I doubt there s an option for afitting ending for this trilogy than what s written here everything just clickedThe best plans were a secret until their execution The hidden knife cuts the deepestRin has come a long way from where her story started in The Poppy War she has fought, raged, sacrificed, and lose a LOT of important companions for the duration of her bloody an understatement wars against the Mugenese, the Hesperian, and the gods I totally understand that Rin may not be a likable heroine I don t think she was ever intended to be one anyway, especially considering that her character is based on one of the cruelest tyrants in our history To me, though, she s one of the most memorable anti heroines in fantasy It s not often I find myself compelled and invested in an unlikeable main character, but that s how I felt with Rin She has so much fury and hatred vested inside her soul towards her enemies, and she s willing to risk everything even when it hurts her deeply to bring total obliteration to her enemiesOnce I was your screaming victim, begging for your mercy And now you cower before meAnd it s worth knowing that my investment in the characters didn t go exclusively to Rin the side characters were equally compelling, and some were definitelylikable than Rin Their complex relationship with Rin serves as one of the things that made reading this trilogy so compulsive Additionally, we also get to witness the background of the Trifecta indetail here It s splendid, really Kuang isn t afraid to torture and pushes all of her characters to the brink of insanity The number of difficult choices with pivotal results that the characters have to make was terrifying, and I couldn t help but find myself glued to observe the tempestuous events their decisions bringWe all lost our parents early on, before they could tell us what provinces we were from Perhaps that s why we were so bent on unification We were from nowhere, so we wanted to rule everywhereOne of the standout components of The Poppy War Trilogy has always been the ruthless action sequences that combined the best and worst of both humanity and the gods I personally think that the actions and combat sequences in The Burning God are the best in the series The lethal destructions inflicted on each other, and the damage physically and mentally they caused were inhumanly powerful and harrowing As Rin wielded incredible control over the blazing crimson flame that ravages everything in her path, there are also other characters with their own respective capabilities to unleash cataclysmic maelstrom, deadly soul leeching, and groundbreaking literally magic The Burning God encapsulates what happened when mortal avatars with access to divine powers clash with each other Glinting swords were raised, the Hesperian s super advanced technologies were launched the gods are cruel, and their elegy of death was unstoppableI am the force of creation I am the end and the beginning The world is a painting and I hold the brush I am a godAs much as I enjoyed reading the constant trading of divine strengths in this blood soaked concluding installment, it was actually the military tactics and psychological warfare that Kuang implemented into her narrative that signified the biggest improvement in her writing skills I ve always thought of the series as a grimdark military fantasy series, and Kuang onceincarnated these classifications with amazing precision The war tactics employed were smartly written environment, power, weapons were all considered before each battle waged Most importantly, I can t praise the psychological warfare engaged highly enough here It s purely remarkable how the most intense moments of the entire series were not when a clash of swords and magic were displayed, but it was the psychological battles fought I honestly felt the dread and extreme paranoia that the characters experienced the bleakness of the atmosphere and the feeling of helplessness were scorched into my soul, and once again, I couldn t put the book down when this entire section of the heartbreaking story unraveledIdeological purity is a battle cry, it s not the stable foundation for a unified country A nation means nothing if it can t provide for the people in it You have to act for their sakeI still have a myriad of things to praise, but I must put a stop here I risk writing a novella if I don t force myself to stop now In my review of The Poppy War, I said This is the beginning for a new queen of fantasy and you should consider yourself damn lucky to have the chance to witness it Not only this statement stands true up this day, but it screams stronger now I am incredibly fortunate that I get to witness Kuang s journey as an SFF author from the beginning the trail of stories she left here is inspiring, and I foresee the flames she ll ignite in her future novels will be as brilliant It has been an extraordinary honor to have read The Poppy War Trilogy, an Asian inspired fantasy trilogy I cherished since its pre debut in 2018 Tempered with tremendously well polished deftness in storytelling, every scene in this book was painted vividly, and every range of emotions was tangibly delivered to the readers It might not do enough justice to Kuang to say that The Burning God is one of the best grimdark fantasy novels that I ve ever read, but this is the highest form of praises I can bestow to this novel The Burning God is indisputably one of my favorite books of all time, andthan ever now, the completion of The Burning God earn R.F Kuang her rightful crown and throne as one of the queens of modern fantasyFor it was wonderful to remember that this land could still be so breathtakingly beautiful, that there wassewn into the heart of the Twelve Provinces than blood and steel and dirt That centuries of warfare later, this country was still a canvas for the gods that their celestial essence still seeped through the cracks between worldsSeries review The Poppy War 5 5 stars The Dragon Republic 4.5 5 stars The Burning God 5 5 stars The Poppy War Trilogy 14.5 15 stars P.S To future readers of this book, get a bucket preferably two because your tears will flow In The Burning God, Kuang threatens to rip out the hearts of her readers, and this is what we ll say to herDo it Take what you want I ll hate you for it But I ll love you forever I can t help but love you Ruin me, ruin us, and I ll let youOfficial release date 26th November 2020 UK and 17th November 2020 US You can pre order the book fromUKUS Book

    I need it like I need air I hope it s 2000 pages long.

    A truly epic and satisfying conclusion to a masterful trilogy Dark, gritty, and honestly a little hard to read sometimes because wow, that s dark But the prose was effortless the 600 pages fly by and it was great to see a lot of these characters back together again and their stories at an end So many threads are tied up nicely and that finale, while difficult, felt like the right one Start with Book 1 but do not miss this conclusion to a wonderful military epic fantasy.
