In this brilliantly original debut fantasy, a young woman becomes entangled in a power struggle of mythic proportions.
Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother's death and her family's bloody history.
With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate - and gods and mortals - are bound inseparably together.

One of the best books I've ever read!!!
It was really just not good.. It wasn't the worst, I blame the editing. With practice this author could amount to something interesting, especially if they look outside their own warped idea of how things work and actually observe human interaction.
I am in awe of the minds of writers that can develop totally new worlds from their own imaginations. Such is the case of Rawlings and such is the case of N. K. Jemisin. I enjoyed the read entirely from my iPad Pro and looking forward to her next book. Kudos!
