Description

The city burned beneath the Dreaming Moon.

In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers - the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru - the most famous of the city's Gatherers - must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill - or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

From Publishers Weekly

Mar 05, 2012 – Jemisin s gripping series launch immerses readers in an unfamiliar but enthralling world as well as a rousing political and supernatural adventure. In Gujaareh, a city-state reminiscent of ancient Egypt (though the differences far outnumber the similarities), dreams are the source of magic, and it is Gatherer Ehiru s job to collect the mystical life-giving dreamblood from the dying and those deemed too corrupt to live. Devout and loyal, Ehiru is slow to accept that heretical evil lurks behind Gujaareh s unblemished facade; only after encountering Sunandi, a foreign spy who is far less na ve about Gujaareh s mad bitch goddess and her unscrupulous worshippers, does Ehiru begin to glimpse the rot that extends up to the pinnacle of Gujaareh s social pyramid. As a hideous monster preys on the innocent, Ehiru s faith is tested in a crisis of world-shaking proportions. Rather than merely appropriating various details from Earth s past and present, Jemisin (the Inheritance Trilogy) has created a fully developed secondary world that is an organic whole.
