The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
The Inheritance Trilogy - Book #1
by N.K. Jemisin
I'll be honest. This was a bizarre book for me to read. Jemisin's story was just different from anything else I've ever read. But it was fantastic. I was riveted throughout. It wasn't until I finished the book that I realized Jemisin is an author of color, and that explained everything. (Again, in a good way.)
This book reminded me of The Goblin Emperor by Katherine Addison. I didn't enjoy that one, but I really enjoyed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
I enjoyed it so much, I immediately picked up the two sequels. Reviews to come soon.
