The Hundred-Thousand Kingdoms

Book 1 in the trilogy follows Yeine Darr. I believe I read something that said the books don’t really follow the same characters/a chronological timeline like most book series do. I’ve avoided any spoilers for the second book, but I’m hoping it’s going to follow the sun god’s redemption story. I thought it was a cute book, fantasy with a vague love story in it… It was right up my ally! I really hope the other two books (and novella) are on the same level and don’t suck.

5/5 stars

The Broken Kingdoms

Book 2’s main protagonist is Oree Shoth, and I was right! It does follow the sun god’s redemption story. Kind of. I would probably give this like a 4.8 or something, just because it’s a bit more…heavy…than the first one. A lot more death and sadness overall, but it still ended up an uptick, which is alright in my book. I do think it’s kind of remarkable that these people are so understanding of the gods slutting it up and banging everyone all the time. I’m pretty excited to start on the third book…but I’m debating on putting it off until this evening or maybe even this weekend because if I start it during my lunch break today I won’t be able to finish it all in one sitting like I’ve done the first two!

5/5 stars

The Kingdom of Gods

This was probably my favorite one. It followed Sieh, the Trickster god. He’s always my favorite, which is probably why I like the I Bring the Fire series so much. Seriously, you should read that one, and then read this one. They’re both great. Anyway, this was kind of interesting because it was all about gods becoming mortals and that one dude trying to end the world or whatever. Hey, this isn’t a synopsis – read it yourself! It was definitely more melancholy than the first two, in my opinion. Things get pretty heavy. But I liked it! Shocking, I know. ;)

5/5 stars


The Inheritance Trilogy

Overall, I though this trilogy was really good. They were all fun reads that I could’ve gotten though much more quickly if I’d allowed myself. The first two books were shorter, and I read each one in a day. The third was longer, but if I’d had a free day I totally could’ve cranked it out. Instead it took about a week to get through it, maybe? I love stories that follow gods/goddesses and how they interact with us mere mortals. I really enjoyed the author’s role-reversal of men and women. All the women were warriors while the men stayed home to raise the babies, lol! I’ll probably read them again someday.
