あらすじ・解説

The exciting end to The Poppy War trilogy, R. F. Kuang's acclaimed, award-winning epic fantasy that combines the history of 20th-century China with a gripping world of gods and monsters, to devastating, enthralling effect.

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 grows, though, will she be strong enough to resist the Phoenix's intoxicating voice urging her to burn the world and everything in it?

Awesome foundation, horrible main character

There’s a BIG possibility y’all would like this series. There were parts I liked. It’s well written and a good story. Probably could’ve been complete in 1 or 2 books but 3 long novels later, I could never connect to the main character. I spent the whole series thinking she’d grow, change, learn from her mistakes, etc..... nope. Completely frustrating. Her anger, lack of growth, blindness, selfishness, child-like tendencies, and callousness throughout the whole series lost me and I ended up rooting against her till the end.

Remove the protagonist and its good (spoilers)

I powered through this last book thinking all the mystery and unanswered questions that were left would eventually be answered or maybe the main charecter would FINALLY grow up and learn from her mistakes and sigh... i was wrong. Let me start by saying this is an interesting read, but the way this story wrapped up was lack luster, and thats an understatement. They spend 3 books over hyping this trio of warriors of legend just to kill them off in the weakest way possible. The main charecter is so hate blinded and immature she rushes head first into all situations, screws up, gets betrayed, rinse repeat. IN EVERY BOOK. They make her so irrational and petty by the end of the book and then ends it by doing what in 3 books she never showed she was capable of. And forget about burning questions being answered, they wont be. Sorry, not for this review, but sorry i dint listen to my inner voice telling me not to read this. its not going to satisfy you

Total Disappointment!

After listening to all 3 books within the past few months, I can assuredly say how disappointing the final book was. It made me regret investing my time and energy into the first two books. I don't know what the author was thinking when she wrote the final book but it was not well received on my end. The first two books were riveting and captivating with refreshing takes on a fantasy/fiction series. I was hoping to see the character develop and thrive in the final installment of what was SUPPOSED to be an amazing trilogy. Yet, all I got was the same hard headed, impulsive, train wreck of a protagonist who only hurt others along the way and never learnt a single lesson. On top of that, the story of the Trifecta had to be the biggest let down of a story arc I've ever read. After hyping up the audience for the first two books, the ending they got was totally flat and boring. I think the author had the right ideas but her execution was sub par and disappointing. 10/10 won't recommend.

Rin: a screw up till the end.

So much expectations, but....

I would have liked to start my review with Nezha's exact words at the end of the book... and since I refrain from swearing, it shall not be written here.

RF Kuang is undoubtedly an intelligent writer and her first two books proved her ability to world creation, albeit heavily borrowed from the brutal and tragic history of Japanese occupation of China, and good character building with grey protagonist that readers could easily root for. Therefore, why on earth is there still need for so much brutality and and violence that sometimes do nothing for the story. It was tolerable in The Dragon's Republic but here in the highly expected finale, it didn't do anything to help the story. The saddest part was there was no further development of character or even the relationships that they share. Huge pause button on that arena from book two.

The constant repetition of Rin's mental anguish was also rather tiresome to read and please be aware that there are quite a few red herrings in this book. (Pls pardon the potential spoiler) My biggest gripe with the book is the ending because Rin never did understand the meaning and weight of the word duty for a person of Chinese upbringing. She had NEVER acted out of duty nor for the greater good, thus the ending was unbelievable. She was a reactive soldier, regrettably, not given much to weighing the consequences of her actions and selfish. So I really could not buy into the ending at all. It felt as if Kuang has decided on the ending and wrote everything to make it work.

I regret to say that after waiting with such high hopes for this book, it left a sour tang that made me wish I have something good to wash down the taste with. On the upside, Emily woo Zeller's narration partially saved the book from complete damnation.

I really did want to like this book but...

Not sure why this story was written.

The protagonist started out her journey naive, unwilling to listen and hell bent on trusting those who were obviously going to betray her. She continued her journey and ended it this way too. What was the point of the whole trilogy? The plot had no real direction. The character development was non existent. I really wanted to like this series but it just couldn't meet basic literary standards let alone the next level hype that led me to pick up this series in the first place. Save yourself the trouble and go read Jade City instead.

Flat character

The writing itself was good. But I did not enjoy this book, nor this series. The main character is full of anger and hatred, has refused to grow up or learn from her past. The entire story is told pretty much from the main character’s point of view, lots of self pity. In turn, all the other characters were left flat, because she could not tell the story from their perspective. Too much hatred. Too much anger. But maybe, growing up in an environment like that, one might just be full of despair, anger... I wanted to like this series, but I failed.

It says heading optional then asks for one

I couldn't ever predict the twists and turns on this trilogy. I experienced so much anger and frustration on behalf of Runin and other characters like never before. the narrator inserts so much emotion into each situation that it's so easy to really feel what is happening and how they feel. This ending broke me.

Brilliant Ending

In the best way possible for a truly befitting ending, The Burning God delivers on storylines, character arcs, and themes, leaving the reader both satisfied and gutted. It gives generously, it deprives tragically, and it ties up in a knot unique to Nikon - in simplicity and a total lack of beauty.
