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 with cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother's death and her family's bloody history.--Book cover.

The only fantasy book this year I couldn't put down - and can't wait to read books 2 and 3. Imaginative, intriguing characters, and worldbuilding, I rated this 5 stars plus an extra "W" I award to any book that inspires me to keep writing. Truly an extraordinary read.
