    Earth shattering and moving

    This book has been my most anticipated release of the year, and Jemisin does not disappoint. It was a pleasure to read, like a fine wine, or gourmet meal where you linger over every note and nuance, while at the same time offering good simple sustenance through her clever action and plot. Structurally, this book does risky things, but it pays off massively well. Overall, I would recommend this to anyone and everyone that enjoys great fiction.

    Brilliance and Passion, all in a Really Good Story

    Brilliant novel: intelligent, fresh concept executed with technical/structural brilliance. The Fifth Season did all the things I want from a great sci-fi novel--it engrossed me with story and plot; has brilliant world-building and good depth of character; it includes the raw and gritty and beautiful aspects of humanity--oppression, prejudice, love, loss, growth. Jemisin does a wonderful job of writing a sci-fi novel that goes FURTHER. A novel of intelligence and passion, and plain old good writing.
