“I doubt most of the nobles will be pleased,” I said. “I was too minor to be worth their time before this whole mess. I imagine they’ll resent having to be nice to me now.”

N.K. Jemisin’s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is unlike any fantasy that I’ve read. The world-building is both complex and awe-inspiring. If you haven’t checked out this author, I strongly recommend you do. You can read my mini-review of this one here. Cover is linked to Goodreads.

From the Goodreads Synopsis:

      “Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother’s death and her family’s bloody history.
      With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate – and gods and mortals – are bound inseparably together.
