The Killing Moon

Title: The Killing Moon
Author: N. K. Jemisin
Publisher: Orbit
ISBN: 978-0-316-18728-2
Why Read?: For Fun
Challenges: Author Alphabet

Thoughts:  I love fantasies, partly because I love to be immersed in a different world.  Jemisin constructed a well-built world, but unfortunately plunged the reader in with no guidance.  Sure, there is a glossary at the end, but the definitions do not help, and with fantasies, I prefer to learn the world through context clues, not constantly flipping back to the glossary which really disrupts the flow.  I found myself lost too many times that I stopped caring and just kept reading, whether I understood what was happening or not.
