The Broken Kingdoms

The Broken Kingdoms - N.K. Jemisin See the complete review posted on Book Frivolity. Check out other Fantasy and Historical Fiction ruminations there as well!

I actually read this the first time a few years ago, but I felt the need to revisit Jemisin’s works. She always inspires me when I'm in a creative writing slump, due to her immense ability to create such unique world's and characters. She plucks out the most terrifying prospects for a writer, (in this instance, the main protagonist being blind) and makes them work to her advantage.

I admire her and I admire her work, and I would buy copies for all my aspiring fantasy author friends, if somebody simply gave me the money to do so.. (hey, I'm not Oprah ok!?).
