From the Publisher:
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.

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is the debut novel from a major new voice in fantasy fiction.
Annotation:
Still mourning her mother's death, Yeine Darr receives an unexpected summons from the royal city of Sky, the center of authority for the rough-around-the-edges kingdom that she calls home. Not knowing what to expect, Yeine journeys to Sky. Upon arrival she is told that she has been named the heir to the thrown of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms. Suddenly Yeine must defend herself and her newfound power against conniving politicians and greedy family members she never knew she had. The hardest thing for Yeine to process, however, are the secrets surrounding her mother's death and the suppressed truth about her family. This is N. K. Jemisin's stunning debut. Selected by Publishers Weekly as a 2010 Top 100 Book.

Praise

"This is an astounding debut novel. The worldbuilding is solid, the characterization superb, the plot complicated yet clear." (top pick) - Natalie A. Luhrs 02/01/2010

"An offbeat, engaging tale by a talented and original newcomer." 12/15/2009

"Multifaceted characters struggle with their individual burdens and desires, creating a complex, edge-of-your-seat story with plenty of funny, scary, and bittersweet twists." (starred review) 01/11/2010

"The book is set not only within narrow physical confines, but within a period of just a few weeks, and there's a constant air of urgency as Yeine does her best to learn about her new surroundings and the merciless intrigue she's been thrust into. The peeling away of secrets and lies makes for a compelling page-turner." - Samantha Nelson 03/18/2010
