Hello Gemmies! I have a new book announcement to share with you today. She Who Became The Sun by Shelley Parker-Chan is a new historical adult fantasy. This book sounds amazing and has all of the things I love in historical fiction...mystery, intrigue, action, and destiny set in a lush setting. I cannot wait to see the epic cover reveal and read this gem!
Synopsis of She Who Became The Sun from Goodreads:
China, 1345. After her family's death, an iron-willed peasant girl steals her brother’s identity and fate of greatness in order to survive. Defying the bounds of gender with cunning and ingenuity, her ambition takes her from monk to leader of the rebellion against China's Mongol rulers. But her rise brings her face to face with the empire's most feared general: a eunuch as trapped by his gender as she is free of hers. Pitched as “Mulan meets The Song of Achilles,” She Who Became the Sun is a bold reimagining of the rise of the founding emperor of the Ming Dynasty that raises provocative questions about gender, fate, and individual power. This lush debut heralds an amazing new literary voice for fans of Game of Thrones and the Chinese classic The Romance of the Three Kingdoms who are looking for the next epic adventure.
Published by Tor, She Who Became The Sun will release July 20, 2021 and is available for pre-order from all major booksellers soon. Are you looking forward to reading this book? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
