ARC Review: Heart of the Sun Warrior

Heart of the Sun Warrior

⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ 5 out of 5 stars

Title:               Heart of the Sun Warrior

Author:           Sue Lynn Tan

Publisher:        Harper Collins

Format:           ARC, ebook

Publication:     10th of November 2022

Xingyin enjoys the hard-earned tranquillity of the Moon and her mother’s company. When unexpected guests arrive, she discovers the strange magic of the place. Soon, she is forced to flee as the Celestial Emperor tries to execute his power over her home. Constantly on the run, she is forced to seek refuge in unexpected places and overcome past animosities to build new alliances.

Heart of the Sun Warrior is a perfect continuation of  The Daughter of the Moon Goddess. Although there were some surprises and a few moments where I wished the plot would look different, the final effect was truly satisfying. In the second part of the duology, we learn more about the fascinating world created by Sue Lynn Tan for her characters. I loved how detailed the descriptions of different locations were, with something specific for all the kingdoms and their inhabitants. I wish to revisit this world in many other novels.

The pace of this book is fast, as it never leaves Xingyin much time to rest or analyse her complex feelings. Heart of the Sun Warrior, apart from an accumulation of action, spectacular fights, politics and intrigues, is also an emotional romance where the heroine has to make an impossible choice between two men. To summarise, I genially loved reading this beautiful retelling of Chinese myths, and I recommend it to all fans of similar positions.

Thank you, NetGalley and publisher, for providing the arc of this novel in exchange for an honest review.
