About the Book:
As Yeine Darr, “barbarian” heir to the ancient Arameri throne, searches for her mother’s murderer, succession struggles with her cousins act as smokescreens for the machinations of the royal family’s captive gods. Following clues dropped by apparent allies and sometimes by outright enemies, Yeine learns the truth of this vivid, troubling world.
In The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, her debut novel, multiple award-winner N.K. Jemisin introduces readers to the rich rivalries and treacherous divine pantheon of the Inheritance Trilogy. Succeeding volumes of the Inheritance Trilogy build on her discoveries and bring us more mortal failings, dazzling magic, and the powerful love and hate called forth by the interplay of human beings with the divine.
Jemisin is the first writer to win Hugo Best Novel awards for all three books of her later trilogy, the Broken Earth. The broad appeal of her vision is apparent in this earlier trilogy as well, which received nominations for SFF’s coveted Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy awards, as well as winning Japan’s Sense of Gender Award and the Locus Best First Novel Award. For over a decade she’s been an advocate for greater inclusivity in fiction and in the industry, and she has been a genre critic published in the New York Times and elsewhere. Her latest adventure is writing DC Comics’ newest Green Lantern, Sojourner “Jo” Mullein of Far Sector. N.K. Jemisin’s earliest work rewards re-readers and newcomers alike with heady certainty of strengths to come.
