My way is Death.
This is the anticipated sequel to Black Sun and after that ending I had to read this book!
This book was just as chock full of political intrigue and strategy. Through the first book we met most of the players and had a very brutal ending and in this book all the players got mixed up trying to get back to their allegiances while finding out what information they could.
The magic systems are so unique in these books as there are a few chosen to hold the power of Gods and then there are some that can draw on power and those that have gifts to protect them.
Definitely a very deep Gods based fantasy. As the Sun God and the Crow God and everyone in between are fighting for power.
I’m very interested to see where this leads since this doesn’t end on a cliffhanger but something has started at the end of this book and the set up to Book 3 is feeling like that book will be a cataclysm.
Thank you gallerybooks and netgalley for the e-ARC for my honest and voluntary review.
Return to The Meridian with New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Roanhorse’s sequel to the most critically hailed epic fantasy of 2020 Black Sun—finalist for the Hugo, Nebula, Lambda, and Locus awards.
There are no tides more treacherous than those of the heart. —Teek saying
The great city of Tova is shattered. The sun is held within the smothering grip of the Crow God’s eclipse, but a comet that marks the death of a ruler and heralds the rise of a new order is imminent.
The Meridian: a land where magic has been codified and the worship of gods suppressed. How do you live when legends come to life, and the faith you had is rewarded?
As sea captain Xiala is swept up in the chaos and currents of change, she finds an unexpected ally in the former Priest of Knives. For the Clan Matriarchs of Tova, tense alliances form as far-flung enemies gather and the war in the heavens is reflected upon the earth.
And for Serapio and Naranpa, both now living avatars, the struggle for free will and personhood in the face of destiny rages. How will Serapio stay human when he is steeped in prophecy and surrounded by those who desire only his power? Is there a future for Naranpa in a transformed Tova without her total destruction?
Welcome back to the fantasy series of the decade in Fevered Star—book two of Between Earth and Sky.
