The Kingdom of Gods by N.K. Jemisin

So this is the conclusion to an amazing fantasy trilogy by N.K. Jemisin – you can see my reviews for the first two books here:

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (1)

The Broken Kingdoms (2)

Seriously, these books are the fantastic. Jemisin has created such a complex, fascinating world in which gods and godlings are ever present in the human world and I can’t say enough good things about it.

So this here third book focuses on Sieh, the child-like godling seen in the previous two books. I love Sieh, and I am SO EXCITED that he got a whole book focused on him. This takes place probably around 100 or more years after the events of the last book. Basically Sieh becomes entwined in human affairs, specifically that of his former captors, the Arameri. He gets acquainted with two Arameri children – Shahar and Dekarta and things kind of spiral from there. While suffering a huge blow to himself, he also attempts to unravel the mystery of who exactly is killing off Arameri and attempting to wage war on the Three gods.

I really can’t give too much more description than that without including some major spoilers. I love Sieh, and definitely felt a lot for him trying to deal with stuff throughout this book. The Three gods appear in the book often, which makes me happy. And we get a whole lotta new background information about them and what led to the last Gods War. And the events of this book are like EPIC.

Also, there’s a cool little extra follow-up story at the end about some older characters, which was neat.

So now, if you are at all interested in good fantasy, pick up this series because it’s outstanding. I’m already looking forward to re-reading them all!

  1. I know I gushed about it on Twitter already, but SO MUCH LOVE FOR THIS SERIES! And I’m glad it focused on Sieh as well! This series needs a reread 🙂 I’m making my boyfriend read the first one right now, but he hasn’t really started yet.
    Great review! I’m not sure I’ll get my gushiness in check enough to actually write one…
