Review: The Kingdom of Gods

The Kingdom of Gods - N.K. Jemisin

Sieh is the oldest godling and first child of The Three, yet he must spend his time eternally as a child. As the god of Childhood, Tricks, and Innocence, going against his nature would kill him. With a sun as a kickball, he wanders where he will... Until the day he meets two Arameri children and decides to pledge friendship.


Now trapped as a mortal, Sieh must decide how to best protect himself and the mortals he loves, even as a forgotten secret from his past threatens to destroy everything.


Set roughly 100 years after the beginning of the series, this novel feels slower since the action takes place over a greater period of time - years instead of days or weeks. Showing us more background on Sieh, Enefa, and the Gods' War, I really enjoyed the chance to learn more about how they all came to be. This book is well-written and the action does pick up later in the story, making this book a satisfying conclusion to this trilogy.


The Kingdom of Gods is the third book in The Inheritance Trilogy, which I received from NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
