Review

The Stone Sky ... establishes [Jemisin] as arguably the most important speculative writer of her generation... It's that good. She's that good.--John Scalzi, Wall Street Journal

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

[N. K. Jemisin's] books have abstracted real-life race issues in a way that serves to magnify the truth.--
Washington Post

[N. K. Jemisin] has pretty well conquered [the epic fantasy scene] with the Broken Earth.--
The New York Times

A must-buy...breaks uncharted ground.--
Library Journal (Starred review) on The Fifth Season

A real tour de force . . . one of the best fantasy trilogies in recent memory.--
RT Book Reviews (five stars)

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 on The Fifth Season

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

Incredible, wildly original . . . [
The Stone Sky is] blowing me away.--The Verge

Intricate and extraordinary.--
New York Times on The Fifth Season

Jemisin deliberately refuses to provide easy answers: they're simply not available, in this world or ours. Painful and powerful.--
Kirkus (starred review)

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

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!) on The Fifth Season

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) on The Fifth Season

One of the most celebrated new voices in epic fantasy.--
Salon.com

Stunning and well constructed ... a book that imbues itself with deeper meaning the more it unfolds and reveals itself, and by the end, I saw everything in a new light. I knew Jemisin was talented, being a huge fan of her Inheritance and Dreamblood books, but here she employs heretofore unseen skills.--
Lightspeed on The Fifth Season

The depth and breadth of Jemisin's achievement with this trilogy is geologic. These books are a revolution in which I want to take part.--
NPR Books

The powerful conclusion to the Broken Earth trilogy will please the author's many fans with its fully developed world, detailed settings, and complex characters.--
Library Journal

Vivid characters, a tautly constructed plot, and outstanding worldbuilding meld into an impressive and timely story of abused, grieving survivors fighting to fix themselves and save the remnants of their shattered home.--
Publishers Weekly (starred review) --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
