Five New Yorkers must come together in order to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and NYT 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.
At this point I think I’ll pretty much read anything Jemisin puts out, she’s just that great of a writer. This one looks especially good though and I’m really looking forward to it! I love stories that take a city and sort of make them a character and that looks like what Jemisin has done here so I’m excited for this one. The City We Became comes out March 26th, 2020 from Orbit.
