The City We Became
Five New Yorkers must band together to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and New York Timesbestselling author N. K. Jemisin. Every city has a soul. Some are as ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City? She’s got five. But every city also has a dark side. A roiling, ancient evil stirs beneath the earth, threatening to destroy the city and her five protectors unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.
The Fifth SeasonThis is the way the world ends…for the last time.A season of endings has begun.It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world’s sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.
