She Who Became the Sun is the first in Shelley Parker-Chan’s The Radiant Emperor series. Set in 14th-Century China, the books combination of war, politics, and gender identity exploration is certain to please fans of Chinese-inspired historical fantasy.
She Who Became the Sun has echoes of Mulan but Shelley Parker-Chan has a narrative that is all her own. Raw and spirited. Vividly sketched characters that call to be heard.
