At the beginning of the year I decided that I needed to read more books by non-white authors. I looked at my shelves and saw a shameful lack of representation. Reading N.K Jemisin's Hundred Thousand Kingdoms for Vaginal Fantasy book club was a start... only trouble being I liked those books so much I have moved on to her other books and I am in danger of Nora being my token non-white author.
I am really enjoying The Killing Moon. The world-building is intricate and original and the characters are both flawed and sympathetic. Definitely one for lovers of epic fantasy.
