The city burned beneath the Dreaming Moon.

In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers - the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe . . . and kill those judged corrupt.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru - the most famous of the city's Gatherers - must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill - or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

The Killing Moon
Average rating

N. K. Jemisin always manages to create a believable world without subjecting the reader to the lengthly descriptive passages so many fantasy authors seem to need. Her characters are beautifly contructed and always complex. They are often frustrated and find that they must learn to cope within a flawed society, but I think it is their limitations which make them so believable. If you liked "The Killing Moon," her first trilogy was amazing, and I would also recommend Mary Doria Russell's "The Sparrow."
