The Broken Kingdoms

By N. K. Jemisin (Mass Market, 2011)
In the city of Shadow, beneath the World Tree, alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind. Oree Shoth, a blind artist, takes in a strange homeless man on an impulse. This act of kindness engulfs Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. Someone, somehow, is murdering godlings, leaving their desecrated bodies all over the city. And Oree's guest is at the heart of it. . .

  • "The very best kind of sequel: as lush and evocative and true as the first, with all the same sense of mystery, giving us the world and characters we already love, and yet with a new story and a wonderfully new perspective on the whole dazzling world and pantheon the author has built." 
    --- Naomi Novik

    "This is a book that readers won't be able to put down...A magnificent novel and one of the best books this reviewer has read this year." --- Romantic Times

    "Returning fans will especially appreciate certain details, but this novel stands on its own and is worth reading purely for its own strengths." --- Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)
