The Kingdom of Gods

By N. K. Jemisin (Mass Market, 2012)
The incredible conclusion to the Inheritance Trilogy, from one of fantasy's most acclaimed stars.


For two thousand years the Arameri family has ruled the world by enslaving the very gods that created mortalkind. Now the gods are free, and the Arameri's ruthless grip is slipping. Yet they are all that stands between peace and world-spanning, unending war.

Shahar, last scion of the family, must choose her loyalties. She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves. Yet her duty as Arameri heir is to uphold the family's interests, even if that means using and destroying everyone she cares for.

As long-suppressed rage and terrible new magics consume the world, the Maelstrom -- which even gods fear -- is summoned forth. Shahar and Sieh: mortal and god, lovers and enemies. Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens?

  • Praise for The Inheritance Trilogy:

    "The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms... is an impressive debut, which revitalizes the trope of empires whose rulers have gods at their fingertips. --- io9.com

    "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." --- Bookpage

    "The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin is a highly promising debut....  A similar blend of inventiveness, irreverence, and sophistication - along with sensuality - brings vivid life to the setting and other characters: human and otherwise....The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms definitely leaves me wanting more of this delightful new writer." --- Locus
