Can’t-Wait​ Wednesday: The Burning God by R.F. Kuang

Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted by Wishful Endings and spotlights upcoming releases.


After saving her nation of Nikan from foreign invaders and battling the evil Empress Su Daji in a brutal civil war, Fang Runin was betrayed by allies and left for dead. 

Despite her losses, Rin hasn’t given up on those for whom she has sacrificed so much—the people of the southern provinces and especially Tikany, the village that is her home. Returning to her roots, Rin meets difficult challenges—and unexpected opportunities. While her new allies in the Southern Coalition leadership are sly and untrustworthy, Rin quickly realizes that the real power in Nikan lies with the millions of common people who thirst for vengeance and revere her as a goddess of salvation. 

Backed by the masses and her Southern Army, Rin will use every weapon to defeat the Dragon Republic, the colonizing Hesperians, and all who threaten the shamanic arts and their practitioners. As her power and influence grow, though, will she be strong enough to resist the Phoenix’s intoxicating voice urging her to burn the world and everything in it? 


Why I Can’t Wait:

The Poppy War and The Dragon Republic have been two of my favourite fantasy books of the last couple of years thanks to the incredible world-building and engaging characters. I was surprised by how much I enjoyed the richly-detailed military strategies but the writing style keeps the reader enthralled at all times. After the events of the second book, I can’t wait to see what happens next.
