The Broken Kingdoms

The Broken Kingdoms

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. . .

Praise

"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 (4-1/2 Stars)

"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)

"...The key is just to tell a great, exciting, engaging story that keeps you turning pages long past your bedtime. And Jemisin has definitely done that here." - io9.com

"Jemisin's talent as a storyteller should make her one of the fantasy authors to watch in the coming years." - Library Journal
