   Awesome, imaginative fantasy that totally breaks the mold for ...
Awesome, imaginative fantasy that fully breaks the mold for faux-Medieval Europe-with-expected-attitudes - this is truly a different world. The narrative is short and in the first two books focuses on a short period in real-time, with informative flashbacks. I usually dislike the first person narrative, but Jemisin literally stucks the reader in Yeine's and Oree's head. Should also say that it is awesomely inclusive, or will that scare someone off who reads fantasy with white-skinned dude protagonists in faux-medieval worlds with kings and dragons and powerless-but-sex women, where everyone except villains are straight? Even if you are one, challenge your perceptions and read this.
   Amazing Works of Fantasy--Some of the Best Worldbuilding Out There
While I enjoyed the first two books more than the last one, the trilogy is fantastic and I wish there were more books on this world. Worldbuilding is top-notch, immersive and unique. And while these books can be considered YA, they are complex emotional YA and contain some very steamy sexuality and mature romance. This was really nice for a change. I loved reading books with indigenous women of color. The second book also includes a disabled woman as its protagonist. All characters feel rich and complex, even characters that seem minor. It is really hard to say enough about how fantastic the Inheritance Trilogy is without spoiling it. I just didn 't enjoy the last book as much, told as it is from a male perspective after reading two books from the perspective of women. It was still pretty good, but not quite as strong as the first two.
   Simply amazing
Absolutely remarkable storytelling and world building, brave and innovative. It was just so much fun!
   Lots of sighing
Seriously, the author uses the word sighed or something like 450+ times. Because it was so annoyingly distracting that I couldn 't count and the Kindle edition makes it pretty easy to read. I really like Jemisin as an author, enjoying all the first season books and even the fifth two in this trilogy, but found this style painful. It reads like the author is completely bored and tired of the story by the third book in the trilogy. Honestly, I'm about two-thirds of the way through the third book and don 't know if I can even finish it. Sort of feels like she fell out of ideas and motivations, but had to finish the trilogy...
   Pretty Good Series
Although this series does not have as much action as I usually like and is more touchy-feely, I enjoyed it nonetheless.
   An epic story
Jemison is a master storyteller. The Inheritance Trilogy is an epic story that is deeply imaginative and told artfully. The depth of human understanding and the highly involved character development supersedes the genre. I highly recommend this for everyone, not just for fans of Sci - Fi.
   My favorite high fantasy trilogy? Easily among the best.
I enjoy good high fantasy, but most of it doesn 't draw me in and engage me. Each book has a different protagonist and a much different story, but all are awesome. If you like the preview, buy the book. Now I am looking for other works by hers.
   One of the great fantasy series, unjustly forgotten
I read this series first, which I love for the second time a few months after I read it for the first time. It creates an incredibly magical universe and characters on par with the worlds of JRR Tolkien, JK Rowling, CS Lewis, George RR Martin and anyone else. I honestly don 't know why it isn 't more famous. NK Jemisin is now a little celebrated for her more recent Broken Earth series, but in these dark times it is too dark for me. The Inheritance Trilogy is yellow, but is the brilliant escape that I need from this world. It has many pages, so it is not like there is not enough of it, but it is the sort of series that there is never enough. I love these characters now and I want to see more of them. It also has several strong female leads of color for those who search for it, so that I recommend it to any fantasy fan.
   am sure he'll thoroughly enjoy these books
This is to be an Easter gift for my 13 yr. old grandson, as tomorrow is Easter Sunday, I have not heard his reaction. He received the 1st in the trilogy from me, his Grammy, in an earlier purchase, so am sure he will thoroughly enjoy these books!
   A great epic!
This had me going from beginning to end of the final epilogue. Technically, it was three books and an epilogue, but they were read one after the other. I look forward to reading more of Jemisim's writing!
