“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)
“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
“A wholly unique experience.” — Washington Post on The Poppy War
“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
