N K JEMISIN
THE HUNDRED THOUSAND KINGDOMS, the first book in Nora
Jemisin's The Inheritance Trilogy, has been nominated for ten awards
including the Hugo, Nebula, World Fantasy and Locus awards. It is a
tale of love and betrayal, family and revenge, power and slavery on a
world where captive gods are used as weapons of mass destruction. It
is the story of a young woman, Yeine Darr, summoned from her home in
an unimportant backwater kingdom, who learns that she is a candidate
to succeed the dying emperor.
THE BROKEN KINGDOMS features a new cast of characters who
must deal with the changes in the world as a result of the events in
the first book. The series concludes in THE KINGDOMS OF THE GODS
which will be published later this year.
The books are a blend of elements from classic fantasy
writers like Zelazny and van Vogt and contemporary authors of urban
Ms Jemisin's short fiction has appeared in ABYSS & APEX,
BAEN'S UNIVERSE, CLARKESWORLD, POSTSCRIPTS, STRANGE HORIZONS and other
venues and has been nominated for the Hugo, Nebula and Locus awards.
