Editorial Reviews

Review

"In the first book of Jemisin's richly detailed Inheritance trilogy, an outcast heroine must find a way to hold her own amid the treachery of her grandfather's court. I've got a special place in my heart for political intrigue, so this book was a delight through and through!"―Cassandra Clare

"THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS is the provocative and exciting debut novel by a writer whose work I hope to be reading for a long time to come."

Kate Elliott, author of Shadow Gate

"In THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS, N.K. Jemisin has created a smart, passionate heroine and an extraordinary world. Marvelous work from a marvelous storyteller!"―Carol Berg, author of Breath and Bone

"Many books are good, some are great, but few are truly important. Add to this last category The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, N.K. Jemisin's debut novel... This is the must-read fantasy of the year."―Booklist
