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.… (més)

Once I got over remembering only the slightest threads from the first book I enjoyed the adventures of the several POV characters as they continue to struggle with family and powers and ruthless enemies - or are the ruthless enemies. ( )

I enjoyed Black Sun immensely; a dark fantasy inspired by Native American mythology. However, the world building somewhat overshadowed the character building. The sequel redresses that in a big, satisfying way.

Black Sun ended with the Crow god reborn and the massacre at Sun Rock in Tova. Serapio was destined to die, but a nefarious scheme to oust the Sun Priest before the slaughter meant his mission was unfulfilled. The two god Avatars, Naranpa & Serapio, are left to figure out what happened and how to resolve the resulting turmoil and unfinished business between them. Meanwhile, the rest of the Nations eye a takeover of the trade-lucrative Tova. Xiala is right on the thick of it, alongside the Priest of Knives. Wanting to save and rejoin Serapio, she may be unable to even save herself.

This was a fantastic sequel. The geopolitical machinations truly expand the worldbuilding and existing characters get substantial development. I cannot wait for the next book. ( )

After reading a number of genre novels that left me underwhelmed, it was a pleasure to read a story that lived up to expectations. Having closed "Black Sun" with the most severe cliff-hanger of an ending since the original movie release of "Blade Runner," pretty much anything one can say about this story is going to be a spoiler. However, the matters that Roanhorse deals with in this installment includes transformation after trauma, as the survivors comes to terms with their situation, and Roanhorse arranges the pieces on the board for the coming climax. I'm greatly looking forward to this. ( )

Roanhorse’s artfully constructed second book in the Between Earth and Sky series is a rich, powerful, and immersive tale that picks up from the explosive ending in the prior book.

Readers get to explore more of the pre-Columbian-inspired world of Meridian, which is now strife with chaos, political intrigue causing back-stabbing betrayals, compromising alliances, and all trying to control/discover the power and magic of others to ensure that they will be the winners.

Meanwhile, the protagonists have undiscovered secrets of their own, and while their internal journeys add delightful surprises and heart-stopping adventures, left me wondering how fate, prophecies, and magic will fare against the sheer will of greed and power by others.

Top-notch storytelling, finely tuned pacing, and complex characters makes for a story bursting with color and originality.

I am now anxiously waiting for the next book in the series and silently rooting that my favorite characters will fare well in the upcoming confrontations.

I recommend this book (and series) for those who enjoy epic fantasy with vibrant diverse characters, well-defined worldbuilding, and gripping storylines.

I received a copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review. ( )

Second in this series based on pre-Columbian cultures with a city to which the gods have returned, much to the city’s detriment. Contending political and sorcerous forces and lots of bloodshed ensue. For fans of magic crossed with palace politics. ( )

You have arrived on earth
where your relatives, your kin, suffer hardships, endure affliction,
where it is hot, it is cold, it is windy.
It is a place of thirst, it is a place of hunger,
a place without pleasure, a place without joy,
a place of suffering, a place of fatigue, a place of torment.
O my little one, perhaps, for a brief time, you shall shine as the sun!

The Florentine Codex, Book VI, 128V–151R

The sun had not yet risen on the first day after the new year's winter solstice, and it felt not at all as if an age had ended, but Balam knew better.
