The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms - N.K. Jemisin
The priests' lesson: beware the Nightlord, for his pleasure is a mortal's doom. My grandmother's lesson: beware love, especially with the wrong man.

I really enjoyed this which isn't hard to believe because I devoured it in 24 hours. 

The worldbuilding is well done (even if I was confused at some points), the prose was delicious at certain points which thrilled me. I fell for the problematic Nahadoth, and my heart broke for Yeine. Don't know if I will continue with the series but hot damn, I really liked reading something so original. I also enjoyed how awesomely subversive it was.
