The Kingdom of Gods

The Kingdom of Gods is the final part of The Inheritance Trilogy.  Once again, the series focuses on different characters.  This fleshes out the story by giving the reader different perspectives on previous issues.

One of the main themes of The Kingdom of Gods is forgiveness.  Many of the characters are faced with moments where they can decide to forgive or not.  Jemisin does a fantastic job of making it uncertain if forgiveness will be granted.  The decision to forgive (or not) often leads to heavy consequences.

The tone of this final book was more optimistic than in the earlier two.  This was effective for building suspense as to whether or not that optimism would be justified or if, in the end, the world would continue to be bleak.  I won’t reveal which way this played out, only that it was well done.

Jemisin is one of those rare authors that can enrich a story with themes and characters in equal measures.  This gives the reader a world that quickly springs to life.
