If I'd just read the jacket copy, I wouldn't have read this -- looks kinda like feudal fantasy, gods meddle in the world -- but my book group picked it, so I read it. And loved it! There are some standard tropes -- for example, the young person arrives at the city as an innocent yokel, but turns out to be destined for greatness -- but for some reason(s) that I'm not analytical enough to put my finger on, Jemisin transcends the usual. The protagonist, Yeine, is simultaneously smart, and tough, and needy. I found it suspenseful, and the language and imagery beautiful.

Despite all the fuss over this debut fantasy novel, it took me a while to pick it up. I'm not sure what I can usefully add to what has already been said, except to say that the praise is richly deserved. There's a bit of a bobble at the very opening, for me, at least, but that is undoubtedly a matter of taste and it doesn't last long. Very cool stuff about a castle that's a whole city, byzantine schemes and some very unpleasant, ruthless people, a few enslaved and therefore resentful gods, a heroine on the track of her mother's killer, and occasional moments of stunning compassion. Very shortly, I was immersed and looking forward to more by Jemisin

One review on Goodreads calls this a classic underdog story. Which barely even scratches the surface; the heroine - who is an underdog- has the gods themselves for her allies, and still no chance for winning.

That doesn't come close to describing the story. It's beautifully written, very original, and a pleasure to read.
