Review: The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth, #1)The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

This is simply one of the most stunning and original works of speculative fiction I have read in a number of years, and a novel very much worthy of all the accolades it’s received. N.K. Jemisin has created a unique world, peopled with compelling and complex characters, who, although extraordinary, very much pull at the common threads of humanity. It is a novel rife with detail, yet carries a tension which rockets you along.

If you read no other work of speculative fiction this or next year, The Fifth Season should be on that list. Highly recommended.
