The Shadowed Sun

by N. K. Jemisin

Orbit | June 12, 2012 | Trade Paperback

The Shadowed Sun is rated 5 out of 5 by 1.
Gujaareh, the city of dreams, suffers under the imperial rule of the Kisuati Protectorate. A city where the only law was peace now knows violence and oppression. And nightmares: a mysterious and deadly plague haunts the citizens of Gujaareh, dooming the infected to die screaming in their sleep. Trapped between dark dreams and cruel overlords, the people yearn to rise up -- but Gujaareh has known peace for too long.

Someone must show them the way.

Hope lies with two outcasts: the first woman ever allowed to join the dream goddess' priesthood and an exiled prince who longs to reclaim his birthright. Together, they must resist the Kisuati occupation and uncover the source of the killing dreams... before Gujaareh is lost forever.

Reviews

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well I for one am astounded. If you are not moved by the complexity of the worldbuilding, by the human emotion and terror, by rich prose, by frank analyses of sexual violence and faith--well. Certainly there is no hope for you.
