Wow, I liked N.K Jemisin's previous trilogy, but I think I enjoyed this story even more. A fantasy based loosely on Egyptian history and magic? Yes, please! Plus, the political intrigue and complexities of the characters kept me guessing until the very end.

In Gujaareh, the dreams of the dying are harvested by Gatherers and used to heal the living. Except lately, someone or something has been killing people before their time to die. Meanwhile, a delegate from the southern kingdom of Kisua has uncovered a dangerous plot against her country. Both the Gatherers and the delegate must team up to uncover the truth behind what is going on...

Lindsey How do the characters compare to the Kingdoms ones? That's what'll decide it for me.

Sue I don't know if you can really compare them because most of the Kingdoms ones were gods and a lot different. But I enjoyed them. The female protagonist is strong and sharp, and the two dream priests are endearing and conflicted (and in love, lol).
