I loved the first part of this fantasy series! It was a great mix of romance and fantasy, and some awesome world building with its own unique mythology and gods. I’ve been waiting for the second book for some time, and now I can’t believe I manage to miss its release back in November!

Here’s the description from Amazon:

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 homeless man who glows like a living sun to her strange sight. However, this act of kindness is to engulf Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. Someone, somehow, is murdering godlings, leaving their desecrated bodies all over the city. Oree’s peculiar guest is at the heart of it, his presence putting her in mortal danger – but is it him the killers want, or Oree? And is the earthly power of the Arameri king their ultimate goal, or have they set their sights on the Lord of Night himself?

Suffice to say, you should start with the first in the series (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms).

The Broken Kingdoms by N.K. Jemisin is available on Amazon.co.uk for £5.27 and on Amazon.com for $11.19.
