What fascinated me with the first book in the series was how rich the world building was for a series so short in pages I love background on characters history etc Especially if this history is mainly on Gods created for a fictional universe This one was a really descent follow up and like the first book I loved how fast paced it was NK Jemisin has a knack for narrating amazing stories with incredibly interesting and complex characters She knows how to uncomplicate them too though and that's the most important thing of all So this one follows a different plot and different characters from the first and that was the first thing stroke me as strange but I got used to it real fastWhile the first one is about ascension to divinity this one was about the Gods' offsprings intriguing and very original Oree the main character is the pigheaded kind of woman and she's very interesting to read about since you can't easily predict what her next move's gonna beOree is blind for some reason though she can see magic and whatever creature is holding magic within it Her paintings are vivid things coming to life when she wills them Real interesting huhDeath love passion anger and some pretty good twists made up for this really good follow up If you've read the first book and liked it then I heartily recommend this to you

In the city of Shadow beneath the World Tree alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind Oree Shot. I've thought a lot about why NK Jemisin's writing doesn't appeal as much to me as it should Undoubtedly The Broken Kingdoms was an infinitely better book than The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms You could almost see Jemisin grow as a writer and as a person as the world becomes vivid and real to her than the scattered pieces of lore she inserted into the first book The writing style and characterizations too felt smoother and personal All in all The Broken Kingdoms was a better reading experience But there is one common thread between these books that really disturbs me on a personal level Jemisin seems to like making her heroines so very helpless It's not a function of disenfranchisement or marginalization that makes them so; it seems to be built into them this instinct to fall apart when the shit hits the fan Like Yeine in the first book Oree spends a lot of time being the victim of circumstance Her actions rarely empower her and her epiphanies are all forced out of her by the actions of other people There were way too many times in this book where she was not just fatalistic about her impending death but actually ready and willing to embrace it And not in a positive way either; mostly she knew it was coming and didn't do anything but accept it The other area where Jemisin leaves me cold are her romantic relationships In fact I think both The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms and The Broken Kingdoms would have been better solid books if the author hadn't tried to write a romance into them Tried being the operative word view spoiler For me the romance between Madding and Oree was far moving and convincing than the romance between Itempas and Oree I think this is because of two things a Since Oree and Madding were already established as a couple before the book started there was no need for Jemisin to try to develop the romance which seems to be a weak point of hers and b I felt like the author wasn't trying to force a feeling of love between these two characters since she knew Madding was going to die anyway and that made it so much real than the unconvincing romance between Oree and Itempas I would have liked this book so much better if it had developed the friendship between Shiny and Oree without resorting to a romance trope hide spoiler

The Broken KingdomsH a blind artist takes in a strange homeless man on an impulse This act of kindness engulfs Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. So when I heard that the seuel to The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms was about a blind woman who could see magic and who was a painter I made A Face A blind woman who sees magic and paints I mean seriously this is the disability euivalent of the magical negro you guys and my face was not impressedAfter reading the book I’m mostly puzzled Because it was a pretty good book full of win on several measures and I just didn’t care all that much It’s about a fallen god but not about how our heroine saves him with her vagina In fact it’s mostly about her imagine that against a background not muddied by assorted racial and sexual fail And hell it even did a pretty good job with a blind point of view I spent a hundred pages grumbling to myself about how the narrative didn’t feel peculiar to me about how nothing stuck out where was the POV work – oh Nothing was sticking out at me because the inner landscape sounded a lot like mine with visual referents used only as far as they’ve been culturally absorbed from everyone else not because they actually mean anything to her Though the occasions when she could see via looking at magic were weirdly pedestrian to me described almost completely in bog standard visual terms It felt like cheating frankly like functional sight could be flicked on and off at narrative convenience But it mostly wasn't about the Amazing Insight TM that that narrator has by being disabled or whatever so there's thatBut mostly eh Didn’t care much And when there's a book about a blind woman my age who broke from her family to move across a continent to live on her own near the center of power who lived my life basically and I don't care Someone brilliant said these books feel like anime and that is so fucking true Long haired emo gods and people with thematically significant names and well a blind woman who paintsAnd sees magic And paints I cannot point that out enough Because really
