  • "Ah N.K. Jemisin, you can do no wrong...The blend of cultures and lore she draws on to make this very unique world is just stunning, and the fact that she inhabits it with such 3-dimensional characters is even more impressive...If you want to get away from traditional fantasy world-building, but keep the compelling characters and deep lore, definitely pick this up!!" ( Felicia Day on The Killing Moon  ).

  • "Many books are good, some are great, but few are truly important. Add to this last category The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, N.K. Jemisin's debut novel...In this reviewer's opinion, this is the must-read fantasy of the year." (Booklist).

  • "Jemisin's engaging debut grabs readers right from the start...a complex, edge-of-your-seat story with plenty of funny, scary, and bittersweet twists." (Publishers Weekly (Starred Review) on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms).

  • "An offbeat, engaging tale by a talented and original newcomer." (Kirkus on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms).

  • "An astounding debut novel...the world building is solid, the characterization superb, the plot complicated but clear." (RT Book Reviews (Top Pick) on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms).

  • "A delight for the fantasy reader." (Library Journal (Starred Review) on The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms ).

  • "In The Killing Moon, Jemisin displays her usual skill at portraying a world whose contours seem simple at first but which quickly break down into something much more complex and dissonant. The world is so fully fleshed out that I could breathe its spices, while the story and characters are so much a part of the world that you could not pull this story or these people out and plug them into a different setting. Jemisin proves yet again that she is one of the important new writers in the sff scene." (Kate Elliott, author of Cold Fire, on The Killing Moon).

  • "An absolutely fascinating read." (RT Book Reviews on The Killing Moon).
