Reading Recommendation: N.K. Jemisin’s The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Sometimes it’s worth it to get led to a book.  I roomed with Kris Dikeman at the Starry Heaven writing workshop in Flagstaff, and she recommended N.K. Jeminsin to me.  Then I was at World Fantasy in Cleveland and bidding on the P.K. Dick award table when I noticed The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, bid on it, and then became enchanted.

I found it fabulous.  Awards-ballot fabulous.  New voice to fantasy fabulous.  It’s  a brave, confident book full of gods and power and sensuality and danger.

Of note – the second book is out now, The Broken Kingdoms.  I have already ordered it, and will be waiting impatiently for my Amazon Tote.

  1. I finished this book just a few days ago and also enjoyed it very much. I was downloading book samples on my Kindle and skipped over a couple of other fantasy novels, but this one hooked me. I’ll be ordering the second book before too long.
