Black Sun
Black Sun By Roanhorse, Rebecca Book - 2020 | First Saga Press hardcover edition

Roanhorse skillfully weaves together a world inspired by pre-Columbian American cultures and traditions, in this first novel in a new epic fantasy series. The book presents the reader with strong characters, a world that feels lived in but not overly complex, and a gathering of protagonists that are neither clearly good or evil, right or wrong. The story is fairly straightforward to follow, with some intrigue, but the tale mostly revolves around a chronological countdown to an upcoming solar eclipse and the climatic events that follow, with some backstory thrown in to flesh out characters and the world. Overall, some characters are more engaging than others, and the world feels fresh yet real; this is a good first entry in a new series that is sure to draw a following as the series continues.
