Amazing anthology of Indigenous & Native authors and artists bringing much needed depth and understanding to Marvel’s many Native characters. Even without complete story arcs in this collection, it makes me want to find more on many of the characters I’d not seen before (a Native Werewolf by Night? I want more on this guy!).

Mixed emotions.
As I love everything connected to mythologies and legends very much, I had high hopes for the "Black Sun" - with all that pre-Colombian background and stuff. And it delivered, it really did! The worldbuilding is magnificent, very fresh, and unique (although somehow, especially in the beginning parallels with Japanese culture and mythology came into my mind - which is not a bad thing :D), characters are fun and relatable. And I'm a huge fan of crows, so the book was a treat indeed.
Two 'buts'.
The first and smaller one was the ending, which was really abrupt and in the middle of the action - yes, I know that Tolkien and Martin and million others are done it before, but it was still maddening. Indeed, mostly because I was enjoying the book so much, I admit.
The second 'but' is bigger. it's one of the four main characters, Sun Priest Naranpa. She's so annoyingly, maddeningly stupid. And it's not believable, at least I do not believe it to be possible. If a young woman from a really low background grows up in the temple from a early age and rises to the top of the hierarchy, she can't be so ignorant of all intrigues going on, especially if the head of the temple, the Sun Preast, is also the head of the all society. Impossible.
But, as I said, It's no so big a thing. Book is still good and can't wait for a sequel!

Note to self: Do not start a series when the next book is yet to be published. I have to wait years?!?!?

Suffice it to say that I did something I almost never do: finished one book in a series and then immediately bought and started the next one.
