Please just do yourself the favor of picking up this series. It is both deeply moving and incredibly well written. I blew through these books in a week because I could. Not. Put. Them. Down.
The Inheritance Trilogy-Incredible!
Reading this was the most amazing journey I've had since I started reading fantasy fiction in the seventies. Everything is new. There's nothing quite like the world NK Jemisin creates here. She weaves a story that envelopes you, that pulls you in and doesn't let go until the last word is written. I really liked it. You will too.
Stunning creative achievement — literature, not sci-fi!
Jemisin’s narrative sweep and compelling world-building make this novel true literature, not a genre-defined piece of “science fiction” at all. One part Ray Bradbury, two parts Margaret Atwood.
