Review

The very best kind of sequel: as lush and evocative and true as the first, with all the same sense of mystery, giving us the world and characters we already love, and yet with a new story and a wonderfully new perspective on the whole dazzling world and pantheon the author has built Naomi Novik A fresh new series ... with a unique edge and a different voice ... flowing, almost poetic prose ... Jemisin is on the path to becoming a big name in fantasy fiction SciFiNow This is a book that readers won't be able to put down ... A magnificent novel and one of the best books this reviewer has read this year ROMANTIC TIMES Intense, epic, and involving i09.com --This text refers to an alternate kindle_edition edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Starred Review. New authors often falter when following up on a noteworthy debut, but Jemisin proves more than up to the challenge. A decade after the events of March 2010's The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, artist Oree, blind to reality but able to see magic, sells trinkets to tourists in Sky, a city filled with supernatural entities and happenings in a world slowly emerging from doctrinaire authoritarianism. After she discovers the corpse of a murdered godling, Oree is pursued both by fanatic religious officials looking for scapegoats and by the ruthless conspirators behind the murder. Hesitant, impoverished Oree is very different from Jemisin's previous heroine, politician–princess Yeine, and she proves just as compelling as she investigates the murder and her own mysterious heritage. Returning fans will especially appreciate certain details, but this novel stands on its own and is worth reading purely for its own strengths. (Nov.) (c)
