I don’t care for fantasy. This book, or rather book 1 of the trilogy, is a good example of why. I struggled for a long time to be interested, I always felt a bit lost, and I think it contributed to my reading slump. Slowly the characters grew on me, so I had to see it to the end. The characters are why I made this a pick rather than so-so. This book is well-loved by many, so I know it’s just my quirk about hard fantasy. ( )

This trilogy is some of the most unique writing I've had the pleasure to read. I recommend starting with the third book to see if you like it, and then reading the first and second book. It will be out of order, but the third book is the only one written in chronological order, and it's the most engaging narrator. That makes it the easiest to get through. The first two books require more of an investment, and that investment is more rewarding if you trust the author and commit to what you're reading.

Jemisin is an extraordinary author, and this was an extraordinary series. ( )

Overall a fun read. The novels are all fast-paced and over the course of reading the entire novel you have a strong feeling of how the stories are all connected. I did find all characters rather bland. Also, I quickly found out that stories where most of your main characters are gods takes away from really caring what’s going on. I felt that since they can do anything anyways that I lost interest in some of the narrative. Glad I read the series but wouldn’t read again. ( )

I quite wanted to really enjoy this book, and there were parts of it that I found very compelling, but after a while I found it got repetitive and a bit boring. Still, I'm looking forward to trying some of Jemisin's other books, because her writing is excellent and there's a lot of fascinating world-building on display. ( )

It would appear there is a new star in the celestial body of my favourite authors, and that is N.K. Jemisin.

Having been impressed with her Broken Earth trilogy, I was curious about her other works, and delved into The Inheritance Trilogy. I am very glad I did. Here is a fantasy unlike any other.

Jemisin, who has now received three Hugo Awards, three years in a row, the first author to have captured that trifecta, amid jeers from many male counterparts (which is another whole story in which I repeatedly mutter WTF?! in her defense), has crafted a world in which gods and demigods walk among mortals of questionable morals and intentions.

Her world-building is rich and dense with detail. Her characters are utterly believable. The pacing sings with tension. Her prose is delicious. You will be swept away into a tale which, like any good story, rises beyond genre to become stunning literature. There is allegory here. There is escapism.

I read the omnibus edition, which includes The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, The Broken Kingdoms, The Kingdom of Gods, and The Awakened Kingdom.

In the first novel, Jemisin introduces her readers to a world in which a morally bankrupt ruling family are about to determine their successor. The story is filled with the betrayal of sacred trusts, of the powerful rendered powerless, of the enslavement of gods, of love, bitterness and vengeance at any cost.

The second continues to explore these themes, now in a world in which demigods are hunted for the extraordinary qualities of their blood, all in the hope of an apotheosis of select members of that depraved ruling family who attempt to recoup and strengthen their power. Heroes arise in the most unlikely of characters, in the most unlikely of places.

In the third novel there is an unlikely and tempestuous cooperation between the last scions of the ruling family and a god who takes the form of a child, but a clever, trickster and mercurial child who has lost all his power because of an act of love, all in an attempt to prevent the devolution of existence into chaos.

The delight of the omnibus edition is Shades in Shadow, in which Jemisin explores the birth of a god, and weaves a first-person, stream-of-consciousness breathless narrative which brings the entire series to a sated, perfect conclusion.

Highly recommended. ( )
