This trilogy (and the extra novella in this version) are excellent! They are tales of gods and their relationships with humans, stories which are beautifully written and compelling. If you haven't experienced NK Jemisin's seriously masterful writing, give yourself the gift of reading these.
Honeslty I didn't know that this was everything I've ever wanted in fantasy until I read it, but it is. The world building, the language choices, the narration POV, the commentary on motherhood and all of its complicated emotions, the female characters who are allowed to be both strong and flawed, the LGTBQIA and Polyamorus representation: I loved this series.
I can't remember the last time an author kept me up all night reading, but NK does it. Every time. Every one of her books is its own universe, and in the Inheritance Trilogy, she really brings you back to the beginning---while simultaneously expanding the present and launching you into the future. Her writing style is a potent concoction of revelation, conversation, and poetry that make the pages and hours melt away. The world of Inheritance is so vast, full of mythos, politics, cruelty, magic, liberation, and loves so large that they literally change the fabric of the universe. The trilogy is impossible to put down. 'Epic' is an understatement; Inheritance is nothing short of legendary. 1 million out of 10 stars.
