The Fifth Season

Unabridged Audiobook

Written By: N. K. Jemisin

Narrated By: Robin Miles

Date: August 2015

Duration: 15 hours 30 minutes


At the end of the world, a woman must hide her secret power and find her kidnapped daughter in this 'intricate and extraordinary' Hugo Award winning novel of power, oppression, and revolution. (The New York Times)

This is the way the world ends. . .for the last time.

It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

Read the first book in the critically acclaimed, three-time Hugo award-winning trilogy by NYT bestselling author N. K. Jemisin.

    convoluted and confusing. very difficult to get into the story and even harder to follow what the author was attempting to do.

    My favorite saying in this book is "rusting earth" This book is a story of humans with extra abilities and follows their experiences after a major earthquake shakes up how they live with regular humans. The book is complicated to follow if you aren't paying attention. I had to rewind a few times to really make sure I understood what was going on. (and sometimes still didn't) The narrator has a soothing voice which complimented the story especially during the emotional sections.

    Really well written... Had a hard time with the very beginning but once I started connecting the details it went smoother.

    Amazing book! Very many different threads - they weave together satisfyingly, but they definitely didn't completely tie up all the loose ends. I'm curious whether she'll eventually tie everything together over the course of the three books, or if some threads will just never re-emerge. The characters are wonderful, and the cultures and civilizations- and everything is so creative in its relevance to the world we live in. The narrator was easy to understand and reads with really convincing emotion. The voices and accents for some of the characters seemed a little forced and sometimes inconsistent, which was *occasionally* a little bit distracting. Overall she just does an excellent job bringing the story to me!

    A great book that makes you think about the state of our own world.
