The Killing Moon

The Killing Moon is the first part in the Dreamblood duology.  While the world is not Earth, it is loosely based on ancient Egypt.  Jemisin does a great job of creating a fresh setting for this story.

Details really bring the world to life.  When Jemisin describes a cityscape or palace, she makes you see it in such detail that it’s hard to believe it all comes from somebody’s imagination.

As in her previous books, Jemisin creates a mythology that threads its way through the whole tale.  It influences the characters; shapes the cultures; and leads to conflicts.  Complex issues, such as the ethics of euthanasia, are part of this mythology.

The Killing Moon is another great example of why Jemisin is quickly earning a reputation as one of the best fantasy writers of the last decade.

Jemisin crafts her stories with extreme care and detail.
