Praise for The Inheritance Trilogy:
"The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms... is an
impressive debut, which revitalizes the trope of empires whose
rulers have gods at their fingertips. --- io9.com
"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...In this reviewer''s opinion, this is
the must-read fantasy of the year." --- Bookpage
"The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin is a
highly promising debut.... A similar blend of inventiveness,
irreverence, and sophistication - along with sensuality - brings
vivid life to the setting and other characters: human and
otherwise....The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms definitely
leaves me wanting more of this delightful new writer." ---
