Fiction Book Group with Alexis discusses The Fifth Season
Led (virtually!) by Greenlight general manager Alexis, our fiction book group discusses paperback fiction, reading broadly in contemporary fiction with the occasional diversion into classics. For July, the group discusses The Fifth Season, the first book in N. K. Jemisin’s three-time Hugo Award-winning Broken Earth trilogy. 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.
