"Intricate and extraordinary." - New York Times on The Fifth Season (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015)


This is the way the world ends...for the last time.

A season of endings has begun.

It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.

It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.

It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Earth shattering and moving This book has been my most anticipated release of the year, and Jemisin does not disappoint. It was a pleasure to read, like a fine wine, or gourmet meal where you linger over every note and nuance, while at the same time offering good simple sustenance through her clever action and plot. Structurally, this book does risky things, but it pays off massively well. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone that enjoys great fiction.
