Book Review: The Fifth Season
Book 1 in the Broken Earth series
AUTHOR: N. K. Jemisin
PUBLISHED: August 4rth, 2015
PREMISE: Not sure how to describe this without spoiling everything. It's a fantasy with characters trying to survive in the world?
MY REVIEW: This book reminded me that I really need to finish up the Inheritance Trilogy and get to Jemisin's other stuff because man, she's a good author. This is a very hard to describe book, but if you are a fan of good well crafted fantasy then I suggest you pick this up.
For those used to her Inheritance Trilogy books, this is written a little differently. I know alternating points of views can be exasperating to some, but this is an author who knows how to use this style well. It's very effective and well done.
If you love stuff like Game of Thrones or just fantasy in general, pick this up. If you love N. K. Jemisin, pick this up. I promise, despite the somewhat slow start, it's worth the read.
WHO SHOULD READ: Game of Thrones fans, N. K. Jemisin fans, fans of dark fantasy
MY RATING: Four and a half out of Five epic fantasy worlds
