The Shadowed Sun (Dreamblood Series #2) by N. K. Jemisin

Gujaareh, the city of dreams, suffers under the imperial rule of the Kisuati Protectorate. A city where the only law was peace now knows violence and oppression. And nightmares: a mysterious and deadly plague haunts the citizens of Gujaareh, dooming the infected to die screaming in their sleep. Trapped between dark dreams and cruel overlords, the people yearn to rise up — but Gujaareh has known peace for too long.

Someone must show them the way.

Hope lies with two outcasts: the first woman ever allowed to join the dream goddess' priesthood and an exiled prince who longs to reclaim his birthright. Together, they must resist the Kisuati occupation and uncover the source of the killing dreams... before Gujaareh is lost forever.

Another excellent read from one of the rising stars of the genre. I love the world Jemisin creates in this series and am only sad that the series ended so soon. Would love to read more from this world. (Note: This book should come with a trigger warning for sexual assault and incest)

The author of the (should be only) Inheritance Trilogy got me again. I cried multiple times during this book. Excellent end, Ms. Jemisin is the best at payoff of the new wave of fantasy writers. If you love questions of religion and culture and how they affect the individual members of society, read everything of hers you can find. If you are looking for something beyond the traditional medieval European epic fantasy, same applies. Hanani is a character and voice that will stick with me for a long time.
