The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin Review

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

By N.K. Jemisin

Shortly after her mother dies Yeine Darr is summoned to the Sky Castle on her grandfather’s orders, which is all the more odd since her grandfather, the king of the hundred thousand kingdoms disowned Yeine’s mother when she ran off with a man he had not deemed fit. Upon arriving Yeine finds out she is to be named heir and must compete against her two cousins for the position of the throne, but the Gods who are trapped in the castle have other plans for Yeine.

 

This book interweaves the history of the hundred thousand kingdoms and the present in such a way that you are never left wondering why like some books tend to do. I enjoyed how Yeine is a warrior and the people she comes from are a kick back to the Amazons, where women are in charge and men are cherished and stay home to protect the children. With all the different aspects of this book, the romance between Yeine and the Dark God, the magic that fills every inch of the Sky Castle, the tribulations each of the characters must overcome, and even the sinister cousin who torments the Gods for her own amusement, this book will leave you anxious to see what happens in the next one.
