The Killing Moon
In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers – the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe – and kill those judged corrupt.
The Shadowed Sun
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. A mysterious and deadly plague now haunts the citizens of Gujaareh, dooming the infected to die screaming in their sleep. Someone must show them the way.
I am really impressed and, respectively I will be short. I liked reading this series because Ms. Jemisin somehow knew how to create an interesting plot, three-dimensional characters (which ofteN were POC, exactly like her) and a very decent world build. Fully-fledged, intelligent females? Check. Believable couples? Check. Original magic system, inspired by (but not copied from) ancient Egypt and Nubia? No problem at all. Indeed I might have found my next favourite contemporary fantasy author. A woman. A woman of colour. Sometimes life of a reader is good.
Highly recommendable. I can’t wait to read more books penned by this exceptional writer.
