Format: Paperback
Nora K Jemisin's fantasy novel, "The Shadowed Sun", follows hard on the heels of the author's earlier "The Killing Moon". The book provides a stunningly powerful follow-up, with the action set some ten years after the events of the earlier volume. If you have not read the earlier volume, I advise you to do so before starting this one.

While the first volume presented a fantasy world modelled heavily on an ancient Egypt of the Pharaohs, the follow-up story manages to blend in additional aspects of ancient North American Anasazi pueblo people of the Canyon de Chelly in Chinle, Arizona, who dwelt in the canyon before the Navajo, and also builds further on the fantasy dream magic elements of "The Killing Moon". The result is a delicious trans-cultural mix which is both exotic and eminently believable. If anything, the story is even more beautifully woven and constructed than the first one (although some may find the romantic element just a little too cloying for comfort; personally I thought it was well-judged and well-handled). The inventiveness of the first volume is matched in the second by many new ideas and notions and, unlike many sequels which simple rehash their predecessors, "The Shadowed Sun" presents a powerful new story as a satisfying counter and conclusion to earlier events. While political manoeuvring remains a prominent aspect to the story, gender stereotyping and women's rights (and roles) come more prominently to the fore, with a female protagonist who becomes more central to the tale than any of the characters of the earlier work.

First, read the excellent The Killing Moon: Dreamblood: Book 1 - I'm not sure how easy it would be to follow this sequel otherwise. If you have read The killing Moon, all you need to know is that this is just as good. It occurs 10 years later, and while some characters from the first book re-appear, this story principally concerns the Sharers not the Gatherers.

Sequels to extraordinary books can be disappointing, so I am more than delighted to report that The Shadowed Sun is not one of them.

Such a brilliant a follow-up to The Killing Moon (which I loved) and with quite the best ending I've read in a very long time.

Beautiful, complex and deeply satisfying - couldn't recommend this more highly! What an absolute joy to find an author who writes such wonderful tales.

More please!

I am totally hooked on the world Jemisin has created and I love her characters. It's pure fantasy - some of the best fantasy I have ever read in terms of believability and depth. I can't wait to buy the next book from this gifted author.
