To the Inheritance Trilogy a newly enslaved Nahadoth forges a dark alliance with a mortal for survival and revenge Return to the world of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in these three interconnected short tales NK Jemisin is one of my favourite authors and I absolutely loved her Inheritance trilogy So when Shades in Shadow was released I was so happy to get to go back to that world I loved the way the stories connected to the three original books and to each other Apart from featuring characters from the books the stories also strongly echo some of the larger themes of the books identity free choice and self determination and how love takes many different formsOf the three stories the final one The Third Why was my favourite even if I have a huge weakness for Nahadoth In The Third Why we follow Glee Oree Shoth s daughter as she sets out to find her father I loved Glee and her stubborn determination to find a way around the limitations set upon her father so she could accompany him on his journey of atonementFor fans of the Inheritance trilogy Shades in Shadow is very much worth the effort of seeking it out but one shouldn t read these stories before finishing the books because they certainly contain spoilers for the main series

Y and wending 'round the sagas of the Arameri come three uieter tales A newborn god with an old old soul struggles to find a reason to live A powerful demon searches for her father and answers And in a preuel N K Jemisin s Shades in Shadow is a modest collection three stories set in the universe of her Inheritance trilogy but a welcome one In a sense these small gems are almost sidebars to the main story told in the trilogy scenes that were not essential to the overall narrative but enhance our understanding of some of the characters The Wild Boy is a preuel set in the early days of Nahadoth s confinement and tells a story of his relationship with a mortal determined to avenge himself against those who enslaved himIn The God without a Name a new god born from the body used by Nahadoth during his enslavement searches for his nature and for a reason to continue livingAnd in The Third Why Glee Oree demon daughter of Itempas seeks out her father in the hopes that through him she will find answers to uestions she scarcely knows how to ask All three tales deal in some fashion with finding meaning in life and reason for living even if the answers are not always the most productive They are about understanding one s nature and one s self and if even gods have trouble with these things then perhaps in reading these stories we mortals can learn to take it easy on ourselves when we too lack all the answers I hope that Jemisin will continue to visit this universe from time to time and bring back tales to inform and delight us
