Three terrible things happen in a single day. Essun, masquerading as an ordinary schoolteacher in a quiet small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Mighty Sanze, the empire whose innovations have been civilization's bedrock for a thousand years, collapses as its greatest city is destroyed by a madman's vengeance. And worst of all, across the heartland of the world's sole continent, a great red rift has been torn which spews ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries. But this is the Stillness, a land long familiar with struggle, and where orogenes -- those who wield the power of the earth as a weapon -- are feared far more than the long cold night. Essun has remembered herself, and she will have her daughter back. She does not care if the world falls apart around her. Essun will break it herself, if she must, to save her daughter.… (mais)

2020 reread: I recently re-'read' this as an audiobook. It's just as spectacular so far as world and character building go as I wrote last time and this time around I have both sequels to look forward to! I highly recommend it.

Original review:

The Fifth Season takes place in what could easily by (may intentionally be?) a far future Earth where volcanoes, earthquakes, and various other seismic disasters have an annoying tendency to kill off large portions of humanity every few centuries. Combine that with a few powerful individuals (orogenes) who have magical abilities associated with said earthquakes that they cannot always control... And you have quite the world.

It took me a while to realize that the various different sections of the book were following the story of a single character. She went by different names at different times and didn't always have the same powers, so it wasn't always easy to tell who you were dealing with. On top of that, there are jumps in the timeline from chapter to chapter, covering years (if not decades). Once you finally figure out who and when you're reading about, it's fascinating to see how everything fits together. Before that... it's confusing and a bit frustrating.

Overall, there are a few different plot threads, mostly following a core character and those she associates with in the different timelines. There are a few different disasters (both natural and manmade) to deal with and a kidnapping. For the most part though, the story doesn't really feel like it goes anywhere, instead opting to explore the world that Jemisin has created. It's a fascinating world and I do love enjoying it, but when we got to the end of the story there felt like there were any number of threads left hanging and questions left unanswered. I assume we'll pick up some of those at least in the upcoming sequel? It still left me with an unsatisfied feeling upon completing it.

Overall, excellent world building, interesting characters, engaging writing... and a plot / ending that could use a little more closure. Worth the read though. I always enjoy new and different feeling fantasy, which this certainly qualifies as. ( )

Her world building is stellar. Super unique and revealed at a great pace. I really enjoyed how she showed the power structures put in place to control certain types of citizens evolve over time.

I did however think that the book was a little long and could have been more tightly edited in the middle. In addition, I really struggled with a subplot of the death of a child (not a spoiler -- happens in the second chapter) the same age as my child just being too much for me to handle emotionally. ( )

An impressive feat of world building.

I am pretty damned impressed that a psych major has written a tour de force where the primary theme is based in ... geology! Jemisin's creations are: orogenes (societal pariahs gifted with the ability to control geological forces), stone-eaters (non-humans who move through solid rock), and the Broken Earth itself, where the land itself poses the greatest peril to its inhabitants. She masterfully weaves together three seemingly disparate stories: Essun seeking retribution because her husband has murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter, Syenite, a young orogene on an unwanted mission with the most powerful orogene alive, and Damaya, who is rescued by a Guardian from a family that fears/despises her so she can begin training. Everything comes in threes with Jemisin: this is the first installment of a strong, new fantasy trilogy.

Reread it June 2021, as text rather than audio, and it was still remarkable in every way. Originally read (listened to) July 2017 as I walked around campus during my first summer working for The Center, ( )

Dit is wat je moet onthouden: het einde van het ene verhaal
is alleen maar het begin van het volgende.
Dit is immers al eerder gebeurd. Mensen gaan door.
Oude ordes vergaan. Nieuwe samenlevingen worden geboren.
Als we zeggen dat 'de wereld is vergaan', is dat meestal een leugen, want de planeet maakt het prima.
Maar zo vergaat de wereld
Zo vergaat de wereld.
Zo vergaat de wereld.
Voor de laatste keer.
