Overview
The incredible conclusion to the Inheritance Trilogy, from one of fantasy's most acclaimed stars.

For two thousand years the Arameri family has ruled the world by enslaving the very gods that created mortalkind. Now the gods are free, and the Arameri's ruthless grip is slipping. Yet they are all that stands between peace and world-spanning, unending war.
Shahar, last scion of the family, must choose her loyalties. She yearns to trust Sieh, the godling she loves. Yet her duty as Arameri heir is to uphold the family's interests, even if that means using and destroying everyone she cares for.
As long-suppressed rage and terrible new magics consume the world, the Maelstrom -- which even gods fear -- is summoned forth. Shahar and Sieh: mortal and god, lovers and enemies. Can they stand together against the chaos that threatens?

Includes a never before seen story set in the world of the Inheritance Trilogy.

Jemisin’s third and final Inheritance fantasy (after 2010’s The Broken Kingdoms) builds on the series theme of obsessive, destructive love. Child trickster godling Sieh has been lonely for eons. When Shahar and Dekarta, twin scions of the once-powerful Arameri clan, disingenuously offer to be his friends, his misguided attempt to seal their friendship with magic and blood ends in catastrophe. Years later, Sieh wakes to find himself mortal and aging, Dekarta scapegoated and banished, and Shahar entangled in family politics. Worse, an ancient, forgotten figure has returned with a plan for vengeance that may doom the world. Jemisin is as talented as ever, and the focus on desperate longing lends the series thematic unity despite being a bit of a drag. There is room for sequels but no need for them, allowing Jemisin to move on to new frontiers. (Nov.)
