Product description

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 on The Stone Sky

[A] powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak. --SFF World on The Fifth Season

[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

[A]ngrily, beautifully apocalyptic.--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog

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

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

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) on The Stone Sky

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

Get this book. Get it now. Read it. Then read the whole trilogy over again.--Light speed Magazine on The Stone Sky

Heartbreaking, wholly unexpected, and technically virtuosic, The Fifth Season is a tour-de-force. I felt every shock--and the book is packed with them--in my marrow. It's no exaggeration to say that Jemisin expands the range of what great fantasy can be.--Brian Staveley, author of The Emperor's Blades

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

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

It's honestly difficult to describe just how good N. K. Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy is . . . if you don't read this trilogy, you'll regret it.--Syfy Wire on The Stone Sky

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

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

N. K. Jemisin's Broken Earth trilogy is the best new speculative fiction I've read in a long time . . . Intricate [and] captivating.--Literary Hub on The Stone Sky

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

Reshapes the face of epic fantasy.--B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on The Stone Sky

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 on The Stone Sky

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 on The Stone Sky

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) on The Stone Sky

Who knew a post-apocalyptic fanatsy could forge a new path over well-trodden ground while still packing an emotional punch?--Parade on The Stone Sky
