Tuesday No-Blues Day

Got three bits of good news this morning, but I can only share two of them with you for now. (Just gives you more to anticipate this week!)

First, The Broken Kingdoms got another starred review from Publishers Weekly! Some excerpts of the review:

New authors often falter when following up on a noteworthy debut, but Jemisin proves more than up to the challenge… Hesitant, impoverished Oree is very different from Jemisin’s previous heroine, politician-princess Yeine, and she proves just as compelling as she investigates the murder and her own mysterious heritage. Returning fans will especially appreciate certain details, but this novel stands on its own and is worth reading purely for its own strengths.

Second, The Broken Kingdoms got another “Top Pick” from Romantic Times!

The second in Jemisin’s Inheritance Trilogy takes place ten years after the first, but is intimately connected with it. Told from Oree’s point of view, the narrative voice is authoritative and original — this is a book that readers won’t be able to put down… A magnificent novel and one of the best books this reviewer has read this year.

Holy crapoly. I’m all verklempt.

  1. I told you that I loved it! :)

    (If I could have drawn little hearts all over the review, I would have.)

  2. Congrats, Nora-sama!!!! I could already tell from the little teaser snippet at the end of 100K that BK was going to be awesome. I’m dying to know more about Itempas–seriously. Can’t wait for this book!!! XDDDDDD

  3. Congrats! I am not one bit surprised, because bk 2 is amazing.

  4. Congratulations! Although if the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is anything to go by, it can hardly be surprising that the Broken Kingdoms is getting some love.

    ye gods but I can’t wait until November.

  5. Natalie,

    Little hearts would’ve been devastatingly cute, but I kinda think the “Top Pick” graphic is cuter. ^_- Thanks, and I’m glad you liked it!
