The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms (The Inheritance Trilogy, Book #1)The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is one of those rarest of books: one that I read straight through in a single sitting. Which is to say: it can hold one’s interest (it doesn’t hurt for one’s spouse to be out for the evening, of course).

That said, other than "It’s really good!", I don’t have much to say about it. It’s dark fantasy. It’s well-paced and never bogs down. The protagonist is bitchin’. And the story? It’s full of magic and gods warriors and all sorts of goodness. There really isn’t much to dislike.

Most of the reviews I write are negative: even with books I like, I write about the negatives. It’s who I am.

But I don’t have anything bad to say about this book. Which means that this review is necessarily short:

It’s really good!
