    Terrific, unusual fantasy novel

    This is a first-rate fantasy by one of the top authors in the field. It's completely different from her first trilogy (The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, etc.) yet there's a sense of familiarity. Gods are a little too close to humanity. Heroes fall hard. The romance you think you see coming isn't at all what you thought it would be. The first few chapters took a bit of concentration to decipher, but after that the pace picked up nicely.

    Read for a unique experience

    I'm becoming a huge fan of this author. She has crazy talent for contructing fantasy worlds like I've never seen. Familiar enough to relate our world to but completely unique. One of my favorite things about her books is that she moves away from the traditional. This book not only doesn't take place in an European setting, it couldn't have. Written in a beautiful styling that feels like a dream. Recommended to any fan of high fantasy.

    More like a 3 and 1/2. We need half stars

    But...I enjoyed the book 3 or 4 stars. This tale was a lot simpler then the previous series of this author. The last series and world created was so much denser and richer, and as someone who loves world building and mythology and religion...it was a better/richer experience for me. While that series explored worship from the point of view of the Gods. This current..now looks from the view of the worshipers. But it being simpler does not mean it wasn't good. The world created in this series is based on the geography, history and culture of Ancient Egypt a period I love to read about. The world was pretty well realized and the religion and magic made sense. The motivations of the antagonist and what drove him...while terrible...was also understandable. Nothing is worse than evil that thinks his evil is for the betterment of man. Everyone is a hero in their own mind. Everyone thinks their actions and their beliefs are the "correct and moral" one. But from the outside you could be someone else's evil.

    Overall..I enjoy the exploration of religion and worship and how it can lead to both good and evil. Intention might be good....but actions tell the truth. At least that is how I read it.

    NK Jemisin is one of my favorite up and coming fantasy authors r

    NK Jemisin is one of my favorite up and coming fantasy authors right now. She tells her stories from a different point of view, has great world and character development, and introduces us to interesting magic systems and pantheons. I highly recommend any of her books.

    If you're looking to get away from the standard European fantasy

    If you're looking to get away from the standard European fantasy, this is a great place to go. Jemisin is a master at crafting deep, rich worlds to captivate the imagination and keep you turning pages. This book, set in a world based on Ancient Egypt, is no exception. The story and characters are extremely well written and original. Pick this up, you won't be sorry.
