By Shelley Parker-Chan

Loved by our collective!

She Who Became the Sun is a captivating story of defying expectations and creating your own destiny - no matter the cost. Amid the ruthless backdrop of war during the fall of the Yuan Dynasty, there is a fascinating exploration of gender through characters whose experiences are never shoe-horned into 21st century understandings of queerness. It's dark, it's clever, it's sexy, and it's written so beautifully that you will almost get distracted from the moments of stomach-churning violence as these characters stop at nothing to claim their fate. If you love tragic period epics (The Song of Achilles) and morally dubious anti-hero/ines this one is for you.

Content Warnings: This brutal book has pretty much everything under the sun (no pun intended) but notably there is no sexual violence.
