About The Book

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?

Raves and Reviews

"An intricately layered, sprawling and fabulously dark epic fantasy of political intrigue, power and revenge. Enthralling, beautiful and heartwrenching."— Aliette de Bodard, on Black Sun

“The world sucks you in from the start, and the pacing yanks you along by the collar. Black Sun is instantly riveting from the beginning—Roanhorse is at the top of her game here.” — R.F. Kuang, bestselling author of The Poppy War

"With multifaceted characters on the level of a political thriller, a world so unique and vivid, you'll wish you had an infinite number of pages in which to explore it, and a quest worthy of the best in epic fantasy, Rebecca Roanhorse's Black Sun will transform you. An extraordinary journey." — Fran Wilde, author of Updraft and Riverland, two-time Nebula winner and Hugo, World Fantasy and Locus finalist.

"Black Sun is an inspired fantasy that will keep you turning pages past your bedtime and have you cheering for each of the ensemble cast as they careen towards a fateful cataclysm. Love fantasy? This is the book for you. Hate fantasy? This is especially for you. Roanhorse has created an excellent world that feels lived in and characters that feel like people you know, which is exactly what I would expect in a book by an author at the top of her game." — Justina Ireland, New York Times bestselling author of Dread Nation.

"Absolutely tremendous. Roanhorse knocks it out of the park again with an epic tale about duty and destiny that will sweep readers away and broaden the horizons of an entire genre." — S.A. Chakraborty on Black Sun

“Sweeping yet intimate, Black Sun is a masterpiece. Roanhorse has crafted an urgently important and utterly engrossing tale of power, oppression, revolution—and the deeply personal cost of each. This is the fantasy epic the world needs right now.”— Peng Shepherd, author of The Book of M

"Engrossing and vibrant. Black Sun left me with my jaw on the floor."— Tochi Oneybuchi, author of Riot Baby

"This is the novel I've been waiting for. This is the novel we've all been waiting for. Everything's different now, with Black Sun. Different and better. Stands shoulder to shoulder with the very best fantasy out there. There's Martin, there's Jemisin, and now there's Roanhorse."— Stephen Graham Jones, award-winning author of The Only Good Indians.

“I emerged from Black Sun bleary-eyed, tongue-tied, heart-swollen. This is a brilliant world that shows the full panoply of human grace and depravity. Rebecca Roanhorse is the epic voice of our continent and time.”— Ken Liu, award-winning author of The Grace of Kings, and The Hidden Girl and Other Stories.

"Roanhorse introduces an epic fantasy with vivid worldbuilding and exciting prose. Readers will be attracted to the story, in which there is no real right vs. wrong. Only inevitable change will draw out the heroes of this imaginative tale." — Library Journal, (starred review), on Black Sun

"The pages turn themselves. A beautifully crafted setting with complex character dynamics and layers of political intrigue? Perfection. Mark your calendars, this is the next big thing." — Kirkus, (starred review) on Black Sun

"A rare and wonderful fantasy novel, Black Sun is one of the best books to be published in 2020. This thoroughly impressive work could stand alone, but the author has more books planned in the Between Earth and Sky series." — Grimdark Magazine

“A brilliant follow-up” -- Buzzfeed
