Editorial Reviews

Editorial Reviews

“Narrator Robin Miles keeps up the suspense throughout this dramatic conclusion to the Broken Earth Trilogy…Listeners will be captured by the tense story of Essun and her lost daughter, Nassun…Miles perfectly embodies the voices of the many characters…Listen and be transported to a meticulously built world that exhibits dire warnings about the dangers of prejudice and power. Winner of the AudioFile Earphones Award.” AudioFile
“Phenomenal. In a class by itself…The first two parts of the Broken Earth series were absolutely excellent, but in this conclusion she puts on a real tour de force…A thrilling story with real stakes and painfully real characters grappling with some of the biggest possible questions, against the backdrop of the end of the world.” RT Book Reviews (5 gold stars)
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
[A]ngrily, beautifully apocalyptic. B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
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
One of the most celebrated new voices in epic fantasy. Salon.com
“Jemisin continues to break the heart with her sensitive, clear-eyed depictions of a beyond-dysfunctional family and the extraordinarily destructive force that is prejudice. She wrestles with moral issues at an extreme level…[and] refuses to provide easy answers: they’re simply not available, in this world or ours. Painful and powerful.” Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
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)
Incredible, wildly original . . . [The Stone Sky is] blowing me away. The Verge
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
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
Get this book. Get it now. Read it. Then read the whole trilogy over again. Lightspeed Magazine
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
