2015 book 66

N.k. Jemisin's The Awakened Kingdom
This novella serves as a sort of epilogue to the awesome (in the literal sense of the word) Inheritance Trilogy. It features the first new godling born in thousands of years, as she attempts to find her purpose while living in a matriarchal community of humans. (There is some really interesting/slightly heavy-handed gender stuff going on here.) I thought the narrative voice was super cute and likable and in general enjoyed this a lot. I should really reread all these books. A-.
