2012 book 149

N.K. Jemisin's The Killing Moon
I really liked Jemisin's Inheritance Trilogy and was eager to read the start of her new series (which is just this and a sequel that comes out in like a week), apparently inspired by Egyptian mythology. And the world-building here is just as strong, though the characters are perhaps not as well-developed (I still liked the main characters, I was just not deeply attached to them). Anyway, lots of crazy magic and worship and politics are afoot and it's all pretty interesting stuff. B/B+.
