Hello everyone! I am very excited to say that Little Red Reviewer and I have been cooking up something special for you – the read along of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N. K. Jemisin. Two more awesome bloggers are joining us – On Starships and Dragonwings and Violin in a Void. I am very excited to be dissecting this book with these ladies!

Here is the book blurb from Good Reads:

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.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is the first book in The Inheritance Trilogy. This trilogy is what some call a fractured trilogy in which each book of the trilogy is told from a different person’s point of view. Book 2 is The Broken Kingdoms and Book 3 is The Kingdom of Gods.
