Review: The Burning God

The Burning God by R.F. Kuang

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

R.F. Kuang brought this story to a conclusion in exactly the right way, given the story they were telling. This final entry didn’t begin as depressingly as part 2 (thank goodness!), but Kuang writes realistic fantastical fiction. Both this trilogy and Babel: An Arcane History contain realistic consequences for the actions of their protagonists. Somewhat analogous to the original Mistborn trilogy, it’s not just “kill the evil emeperor and everything is hunky-dory”. There are consequences to civil war.

This means this book is full of tons of twists and turns. It is very, very well done and I recommend this trilogy, although it’s very heady.
