The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms
by N.K. Jemisin
Description (from GoodReads): Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother's death and her family's bloody history.

With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate - and gods and mortals - are bound inseparably together.

  1. Ohh wow, this book sounds awesome! Like epic-ly awesome! This has just gone on my To Be Read List.

    I love the cover as well! The guy in the background looks menacing and the Kingdom looks intriguing. Hmm the whole thing actually looks like a tree.

    The bottom of the kingdom as the roots, the kingdom itself as the trunk and the hair of the guy as the branches. That's pretty cool I think!
