A review by moonfawn
The Burning God by R.F. Kuang


Wow. Just wow. This book is by far, in my opinion, the best out of the ‘Poppy War’ trilogy.

The ending is what got me, albeit some instances were predictable, overall last chapter or two was a wild ride. I can’t remember the last time I had bawled my eyes out to a book in recent memory.

Throwing up, crying, screaming, dying… ugh. Heartbreakingly necessary ending.


“…that look of wretched, desperate, and reproachful loyalty.

It said, Do it.

Take what you want, it said. 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 you.”
