Book Description

6 Oct 2011
For two thousand years the Arameri family has ruled the world by enslaving the very gods that created mortalkind. Now the gods are free, and the Arameri's ruthless grip is slipping. Yet they are all that stands between peace and world-spanning, unending war. Shahar, last scion of the family, must choose her loyalties. She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves. Yet her duty as Arameri heir is to uphold the family's interests, even if that means using and destroying everyone she cares for. As long-suppressed rage and terrible new magics consume the world, the Maelstrom - which even gods fear - is summoned forth. Shahar and Sieh: mortal and god, lovers and enemies. Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens the kingdom of gods?

Product Description

Review

'This has been an intensely enjoyable series to read...What began as a twist on the familiar fantasy epic has developed into a penetrating analysis of the relationships between gods and humans, and the problems that arise, but also issues of power among people and countries, and who gets to wield it' (INTERZONE )

<i>The Inheritance Trilogy</i> has all the elements I love in fantasy: worlds that are fresh and not overly derivative of fantasy that's gone before, complex characters with both strengths and flaws, powerful magic that isn't just a substitute for technology but affects everything from the obvious like power structures to the subtle, like everyday attitudes and habits. Oh, and a compelling, gripping plot (Trudi Canavan (SUNDAY TIMES bestselling author) )

Book Description

The concluding volume in this spectacular and highly original fantasy epic, where the lives of gods and mortals intertwine

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb ending to the series 16 Dec 2011
By W.M.M. van der Salm-Pallada TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Paperback
WOW was my primary reaction to this concluding volume of the Inheritance trilogy. The Kingdom of Gods is an amazing story once again. As I said in my review of The Broken Kingdoms, Ms Jemisin has a distinct voice in oodles and spades and this is reaffirmed by The Kingdom of Gods. But what is even more striking is that while she has a distinct voice, each of the three books has a distinct voice as well. Sieh sounds as I expected Sieh would, based on the prior books. The distinction between the three books is emphasised by my reading the last two, The Broken Kingdoms and The Kingdom of Gods, so close together. The books are a cohesive whole, when taken as a trilogy, while at the same time they're all strong standalone narratives. It's a rare series that achieves that.

I loved Sieh's story. Set decades after the events in The Broken Kingdoms, society has changed even more. Life has become more secular and nations chafe under Arameri rein. The large narrative scale is world changing, with client states rebelling and religion changing and becoming less dominant, but small scale the book a story about trust. Sieh learning to trust the Arameri twins Shahar and Dekarta and the twins trusting him, Sieh needing to trust his fellow godlings and his parents, and of course Yeine and Nahadoth trusting Itempas. I love that trust is shown as sometimes implicit, sometimes needing to be earned, as something that can be broken and lost, but also regained. Sieh's journey in this regard was the most central and maybe the most far-reaching of the novel. Sieh's development throughout the novel was fantastic, but it is hard to detail why it is so without giving spoilers. Shahar goes through a similar magnitude of growth. She struggles to break the Arameri mould, to not be a tyrant, to do what is right.

4.0 out of 5 stars Cracking title 10 Oct 2011
By Gareth Wilson - Falcata Times Blog TOP 500 REVIEWER VINE VOICE
Format:Kindle Edition
The third title in NK Jemisin's Inheritance Trilogy and one that along with the others, really won't let you sit comfortably and has been a long wait for fans. As with the previous two it has great characters, decent plot line and of course new and novel ways to do things from magic through to the interaction between deities and their followers in this no holds barred fast action title that demonstrates that NK is an author to watch.

Add to this some great twists, a real sense of not only accomplishment but also of joy at the developments and the reader is given not only a seriously decent read but one that will stay with them for quite some time as future titles will be judged against the skills presented within. For me, this has been a real breakthrough and a pure joy although that has to be tempered with the regret that this, for now, is the final journey into NK's mind for a while.

This book is a good ending to the series. It tied up loose ends quite nicely, without leaving things to bug you and wonder over.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great ending to the series 18 Feb 2013
Format:Paperback
I really enjoyed this book, it got into my head in quite a strong way. I was impressed at the expanded view of the universe, which had a lot more about the godsrealm and the unknowable Maelstrom. I also liked the way you could tell that society had moved on in the decades since the last book. The main thing I liked was the characterisation of Sieh. He was one of the most enjoyable characters in the first book, and being inside his head only made him more successful as a character.
The format is the same as the previous two books the choice of narrator is a significant change. The first two books were narrated by (mostly) human women, whereas Sieh male and the oldest godling (a god who isn't one of the Three creator-deities), even though he normally takes the form of a child. It is interesting to have a narrator who is a god and sees mortals and their world from a very different viewpoint. Sieh gives us the reader more information about the wider universe and the gods. Sieh is an interesting mix of holy and irreverent, behaving both a stroppy, mischievous child and a powerful god, even though he spends most of the book adapting to no longer really being either.
The central plot is about Sieh adapting to his unwelcome mortality, and his relationship with sister and brother, Shahar and Dekarta. There is also a mystery plot about a new type of magic and a rogue godling, but though that becomes incredibly important right at the end of the book I didn't feel it had as much impact as the more personal sections of the story. The relationships between Sieh and the twins are complex and interesting. His initial romance with Shahar is an impetuous, adolescent one. Though the feelings are genuine the situation is tinged with deceit as Shahar fulfills her role as her mother's pawn.
