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.


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