The Dreamblood Duology
The Dreamblood Duology | N. K. Jemisin
11 posts | 7 read | 16 to read
The Dreamblood Duology includes the novels The Killing Moon (nominated for the Nebula and World Fantasy awards) and The Shadowed Sun. "One of the most celebrated new voices in epic fantasy." -- Salon.com The city burned beneath the Dreaming 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. But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru -- the most famous of the city's Gatherers -- must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill -- or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic. For more by N.K.

Uggghhh. I really like these big chunky omnibuses of N.K. Jemisin‘s previous work. I knew I should have bought it when I saw it in St. Louis but I bought the Inheritance Trilogy omnibus instead. This woman is rocking Sci-Fi/Fantasy right now. Why did this book go out of print?

Thankfully it is a way cheaper on Amazon but I prefer new editions. Guess I‘m now on the hunt!

Soubhiville Wow, that‘s a steep price! 9mo
Geeklet @Soubhiville Right? It‘s nuts. It‘s only like $30 on Amazon but that‘s for a used copy as well. I feel like I‘ve seen it recently somewhere so I‘ll hunt around for awhile before I get the one on Amazon. It‘s just weird it‘s out of print. The author just won three Hugo‘s back to back to back. I figured I‘d be able to get a new copy. 9mo
Soubhiville Yeah it seems like you would be able to find it somewhere! 9mo
StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego That's expensive. I agree about NK Jemisin though. She's amazing. 9mo
Geeklet @StillLookingForCarmenSanDiego I loved the Broken Earth trilogy so much. I need to read the Inheritance trilogy but...uh...that large beautiful omnibus that I love is intimidating. It looks great on a shelf though! 9mo

Interesting world building that spins off from Ancient Egyptian mythology but not obviously so. Not sure how I feel about the Gatherers.

Happy Saturday reading, Littens!

I had gotten a bottle of sparkling for New Years, but in true form, fell asleep before I could open it. Which just means a lazy Saturday of mimosas and reading.

I'ma let y'all finish but this #Goodreads update is the best of all time! (In my Kanye voice)

It's so pretty!

But back to the book: It was amazing. NK Jemisin is a gem, and I love her. Read this book: enjoy the cool characters, the fantastic writing, and the great storyline.

⭐⭐⭐⭐

Since my husband decided that he actually wants to read "We Were Eight Years In Power" like I suggested in the first place, I'm pushing it back in the queue and starting this while I wait for my weekly Makenna injection.

Dear Husband and The Kid also got a couple of things from BAM! today. He honestly has no idea what he's in for with NK Jemisin. I'm excited he asked for it because I've been wanting to read this one! My daughter picked the Shoppies book for herself and eventually helped shop for her match. Those goodies are in the bag. #winwin #bookhaul #jryulebookswap

EchoLogical @cocomass I think we will too! NK Jemisin is amazing! 2y

Went out wandering while visiting my in-laws, found an indy bookstore, and scored the last Jemisin series I haven't read. No complaints today.
