review 1: I've finally figured out what I dislike about Jemisin's books. They lack humor. The characters are always complex, the world building exquisite and yet they lack humor. No jokes or snide comments or innuendo... Just very seriously good writing. I love that the characters are peop...

review 1: This book had all the problems of the first Dreamblood book - critical elements poorly explained, underwhelming plot twists - with the added downgrade of flatter characters and a more melodramatic story. Parts of it verged into soap opera territory, and the end completely broke d...

review 1: Jemisin has definitely grown as a writer which is always awesome to see. She keeps the fallible first person narration, but this time around it manages to strengthen instead of distract from the story underneath. I was a little less engaged in this one, maybe because there was le...

review 1: Fantastic book - it's about a woman who finds out she may be next in line to take over the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, and soon finds herself in the midst of a cutthroat campaign featuring deadly enemies, gods and goddesses, all the while trying to navigate an entirely unfamiliar ...

review 1: The last book in the trilogy is significantly toned down in excitement compared to previous two books. This one had a melancholy, slightly disturbing tone throughout, too. I might even say it seemed somewhat more epic, as it built upon the two previous books' foundations (a sign ...

review 1: Well, it wasn't nearly as strong as the first book in the series, but it was still a good read. The plot was a bit scattered and there was too much exposition at times, but it was fascinating to learn more about the world and how it had changed since the events of the first book....

review 1: The good: This book expands on the world introduced in the previous book, letting us see what life is like for the common people in the empire (particularly the capital city). The ways in which everyone's adjusted to a giant tree sprouting up in their city is fun, and I liked ho...

review 1: I really enjoyed this book. I enjoyed the transcendent subject matter that touched on the necessity of duality for existence. And I was enthralled and delighted by the epistemological and metaphysical focus of the dialogue an inner monologues. If you enjoy thinking abstractly but...

review 1: This book was so new, and different, refreshing. I loved everything about it.I loved following Yeine and watching her change. I liked the revelation of a slightly unreliable narrator (or even just a mentally disjointed narrator? I feel I got all the information, but just not in t...

review 1: She has created such an amazing world.
review 2: Oh my life, I enjoyed this so much. Pure escapist bliss, but with a real soul beneath. Brilliant.

review 1: This book was so perfect in so many ways. I'm constantly amazed when I read Jemisin's novels at how she is able to write in so many unique voices. This is the perfect conclusion/continuation to the Inheritance trilogy, as the godling created to correct the imbalance left in the l...
