The Kingdom Of Gods

The Kingdom of Gods - N.K. Jemisin Sieh’s story is captivating in this final installment of N.K. Jemisin’s Inheritance series. The child-god who carries so much hurt and anger, who swings from innocent to cruel to compassionate in the blink of an eye, who is loyal to two of the Three, steadfast in his almost-hate of Bright Itempas…In The Kingdom of the Gods, Sieh meets Arameri siblings Shahar and Dekarta, and eventually realizes that he might actually love them. Just a bit.But it’s not just about Sieh’s heart here – there’s a godling-gone-rogue plotting against the Arameri and the gods, attracting the Maelstrom and putting the entire world in jeopardy. Will the Three resolve their differences to save this child-god, and this world? Will they even be able to?The storytelling is engrossing, and keeps you turning the pages. The world-building is top-notch, and I loved the characters – even the flawed ones. This one has more adult topics though, so if you’re a bit squeamish about incest or bi-sexuality, you’ll want to skip it.drey’s rating: Excellent!
