American author N.K. Jemisin's début The Hundred Thousand kingdom's received some amazing reviews when it was released on both sides of the Atlantic by Orbit back in February. It marked out Jemisin as an author to watch and the release of sequel, The Broken Kingdoms should further cement the the repuation of this stunning new talent.

"In the city of Shadow, beneath the World Tree, alleyways shimmer with magic and godlings live hidden among mortalkind. Oree Shoth, a blind artist, takes in a homeless man who glows like a living sun to her strange sight. However, this act of kindness is to engulf Oree in a nightmarish conspiracy. Someone, somehow, is murdering godlings, leaving their desecrated bodies all over the city. Oree's peculiar guest is at the heart of it, his presence putting her in mortal danger - but is it him the killers want, or Oree? And is the earthly power of the Arameri king their ultimate goal, or have they set their sights on the Lord of Night himself?"
