I have never been so happy with a new author as I have been with N.K. Jemisin. Everything I’ve read from her has been absolutely phenomenal. I did not expect The Fifth Season to be so good, but I cannot begin to describe how great it was.
N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season is a story about the beginning of the end of an age. It is about surviving the destruction of civilization. However, in the midst of all this, this is a story about a woman searching for her child, a student doing what she needs to become a master, and a child forced to become something that others do not consider human. This is a story of transformation.
