The Inheritance Trilogy Omnibus

The Inheritance Trilogy Omnibus - N.K. Jemisin "Should I pause to explain? It is poor storytelling." You're telling me. The story has no structure, instead the narrative is interrupted by the first person unreliable narration that is, for some reason, so desirable. Things that are happening, often quick-paced and quite interesting, are stopped so that we can be told some history of this world we are entering. This is called info-dumping and it's terrible writing. I cared not for the protagonist nor her life, though the enslaved gods was an interesting concept. The rest was generic YA fantasy stuff.
