I still enjoyed reading the sequel for the most part, but also I feel like we didn't need this story. We didn't need to revisit the love triangle. ( )

i feel like the bones are there with this one... i just can't decide if the aimlessness of this story should be attributed to the writing or the protagonist's lack of self knowledge. this really should've been a novella, if not just part of book 1. not to mention the most tedious gd love triangle ever written, i swear to his celestial majesty... case in point, one of the love interests literally DIES, only to get exhumed and forcefully reincarnated by the other love interest in order to appease the protag. let the man rest, simp ( )

I was so close to hating this book. But thank goodness, in ended with the guy I was rooting for. Still I'm pissed at her so -1 star. ( )

I like the main character in Daughter of the Moon Goddess, I found her extremely annoying in this sequel. She appeared selfish and proud, but also always had the wisest answer. Too many conflicting qualities, just very unlikeable. ( )

The highly anticipated (at least for me) sequel to Tan's Daughter of the Moon Goddess delivers in all the ways that made the first novel great: action, romance, magic, all of it is there and more. Whereas DotMG introduced readers to a vibrant, pulsing world of immortals and enchantments, Heart of the Sun Warrior provides a more emotional follow-up that will leave readers turning the pages in a frenzy to get to the end.

At her core, Xingyin is still the same. She desires to spend eternity quietly with her loved ones, but that is not possible when the glittering Celestial Court shows up at their door, demanding more. She is marked by her adventures. She is weary of intrigue and suspicious of strangers. This restlessness is best personified in her inability to choose between Liwei and Wenzhi. Both men are very different but also the same. They both offer her the same future of a regimented and two-faced court life, only one is in the Celestial Kingdom and the other is in the Demon Realm, and either situation would kill Xingyin. Nevertheless, I still found the romance compelling and filled to the brim with angst.

Compared to the previous novel, Xingyin is more active in this one. While she kills a lot less monsters, she drives the plot this time. Previously, she was at the mercy of her circumstances, but now she makes an effort to plot, steal, and attack all in the name of helping her family. She is aware that she is a hypocrite for stooping to the methods she uses to achieve her goals while disdaining when others do the same. Again, this showcases that Xingyin isn't perfect. Just as she is a relatable character, she is also unique with her own strengths and weaknesses. She's compelling to read about, even as she makes mistakes. This story is more about learning to accept grief and to grow from it, and that is a long, hard road for Xingyin, as it is for many of us too.

Once again, readers are taken all over the map on what sometimes feels a bit of a wild goose chase. Yet, the evocative settings make up for this. It's still fun being introduced to new characters of Chinese mythology and experiencing the ever-increasing stakes.

I have a couple of critiques for this book, but I know they won't bother me on a second reading. I felt the romantic heroes didn't really do as much this time around. They just bickered, brooded, and vied for Xingyin's attention. Liwei, in particular, was more of a damsel in distress type character and is much more passive than in the first book. Second, the laws of magic were really pushed to the boundaries this time around, and I struggled to grasp what was possible and what was not. What saved this book from 4 stars was the unexpected yet hopeful and completely satisfying ending.

This duology will take you on a journey just as emotional and heroic as the one Xingyin takes. You are right there with her from beginning to end. The emotional weight is there, and Tan's messages of acceptance, growth, and hope are palpable on every page. I said before that this represents the best of what fantasy can be, and that statement remains true until the very end.
