Editorial Reviews

Review

"Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold."
Entertainment Weekly

"Intricate and extraordinary."
The New York Times

"[The Fifth Season is] an ambitious book, with a shifting point of view, and a protagonist whose full complexity doesn't become apparent till toward the end of the novel. ... Jemisin's work itself is part of a slow but definite change in sci-fi and fantasy."―Guardian

"Astounding... Jemisin maintains a gripping voice and an emotional core that not only carries the story through its complicated setting, but sets things up for even more staggering revelations to come."
NPR Books

"Jemisin's graceful prose and gritty setting provide the perfect backdrop for this fascinating tale of determined characters fighting to save a doomed world."
Publishers Weekly (Starred Review)

"A must-buy...breaks uncharted ground."
Library Journal (starred review)

"Jemisin might just be the best world builder out there right now.... [She] is a master at what she does."
RT Book Reviews (Top Pick!)

"The Fifth Season is a powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak.... It is a novel that demands much of its readers; it rewards them aplenty and is one of those novels that becomes more powerful after deep consideration and subsequent readings."―SFF World

"This is an intense, exciting novel, where survival is always on the line, set in a fascinating, original and dangerous world with an intriguing mystery at the heart of it. I can't wait to see what happens in the next book!"
Martha Wells

"Brilliant...gorgeous writing and unexpected plot twists."
Washington Post
