Review: Black Sun (#1 Between Earth and Sky) by Rebecca Roanhorse

MY RATING: ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

36/50 – 2021 Goodreads Challenge

This is my first time reading a novel by Rebecca Roanhorse, and it did not disappoint one bit! I was sold the moment I saw the cover of the book, it was too gorgeous not to want to read. This series is also LGBTQ+ and a story set for the Indigenous peoples of pre-colonial Americas.

“There’s was magic in the world, pure and simple, things she didn’t understand. Best get used to it.”

It was difficult to put this down every night, I was hooked from the opening chapter, and man was that TENSE. I said: THAT IS HOW YOU START A BOOK!
While there isn’t a lot of action happening, you get a great deal of info about the world and the characters within it. You have to read this book!

Indigenous peoples, LGBTQ+ representation, great characters, great plot, great story. It’s everything you could ask for!

A man with a destiny is a man who fears nothing”

Look at this beautiful map!
