Book Review: The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

Cover of The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin

This book.

This was amazing.

This is a feat of science fantasy and storytelling. To explain exactly :why: it is a feat would, fundamentally spoil major elements of this work. Plot, characterization, and worldbuilding work together here to just… make magic.

:speechless:

But this is completely, utterly in the “holy shit, this was good” category.

DAMN.
