The second book in the trilogy Between Earth and Sky (a.k.a. One of my new fave series) by Hugo, Nebula, Lambda and Locus finalist Rebecca Roanhorse (a.k.a. One of my new fave authors).
This series is one of the most creative and unique fantasy worlds I’ve ever read, and the second book doesn’t disappoint. After the crazy cliffhanger at the end of Black Sun, Fevered Star continues with the stories of Xiala the Teek Sea Captain, Narampa the former Sun Priestess and Serapio the Crow God on their way to power, redemption and revenge.
If you haven’t started the series, definitely do so as soon as possible.
Actually does anyone have Rebecca Roanhorse’s number so I can work on getting an advanced rough draft of book three? I genuinely can’t wait.

“I didn’t think it was possible to love a book more than Black Sun, but Rebecca Roanhorse has outdone herself with this follow up adventure. I read it in two sleepless nights and felt hollow returning to boring real life. Counting down to #3!”

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 of 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 from one of the “Indigenous novelists reshaping North American science fiction, horror, and fantasy” (The New York Times) and the “epic voice of our continent and time” (Ken Liu, award-winning author of The Grace of Kings).
