Book cover
The Fifth Season
N.K. Jemisin

This book is every bit as good as you’ve probably heard. Original, engaging, and deeply moving in parts. It is full of longing in every form, and ultimately a thoughtful take on privilege and purpose.

You should have told Jija, before you ever married him, before you slept with him, before you even looked at him and thought maybe, which you had no right to ever think.

It will break your heart, which is a feat for a book set in such a foreign fantastic universe.
