The Shadowed Sun

By N. K. Jemisin
The Shadowed Sun by N. K. Jemisin digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

In the final book of NYT bestselling and three time Hugo-Award winning author N. K. Jemisin's Dreamblood Duology, a priestess and an exiled prince must join together to free the city of dreams from imperial rule.

Gujaareh, the city of dreams, suffers under the imperial rule of the Kisuati Protectorate. A city where the only law was peace now knows violence and oppression. And nightmares: a mysterious and deadly plague haunts the citizens of Gujaareh, dooming the infected to die screaming in their sleep. Trapped between dark dreams and cruel overlords, the people yearn to rise up -- but Gujaareh has known peace for too long.

Someone must show them the way.

Hope lies with two outcasts: the first woman ever allowed to join the dream goddess' priesthood and an exiled prince who longs to reclaim his birthright. Together, they must resist the Kisuati occupation and uncover the source of the killing dreams. . . before Gujaareh is lost forever.

“This book is amazing. It sucked me in and kept me riveted the entire way through. This is absolutely something I will read again and again. The world is deep and complex, but not so much that it would be confusing. And the characters learn and grow and change and are imperfect and are strong, but have struggles and weaknesses. And there are no shiney bows to neatly tie every piece of the book up, but the packaging at the end is even more perfect for the story than any neat bow would have been. This book is amazing and wonderful, I absolutely recommend it.”

Beaming Face with Smiling Eyes“It took me a little to get into the book because you’re learning new characters and I was so attached to the ones from the first book I was heartbroken, but as you continue they pick up on the story but with some time after! It was a good mix of old and new characters and a great continuation of the world and what it had become. I enjoyed how the romance played out even though I selfishly wanted more, it was true to who the characters were!”
