Author(s): N.K. Jemisin

SF & Fantasy | Children/Teen

'The most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation... Jemisin seems able to do just about everything' - NEW YORK TIMES.

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 Times bestselling 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 most critically acclaimed author in contemporary science fiction and fantasy' - GQ.  

'N. K. Jemisin is a powerhouse of speculative fiction' - BUSTLE.

'Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold' - ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY.
