Waiting on Wednesday ~ The Fifth Season

Waiting on Wednesday is hosted by Jill over at Breaking The Spine. It's a weekly event that spotlights upcoming releases we are eagerly anticipating.

The Fifth Season (The Broken Earth #1)

by N.K. Jemisin
published by Orbit
expected release date: 2015
genre: Fantasy

Summary (Goodreads): The Fifth Season is set in a world which has suffered frequent, repeated Extinction Level Events for millions of years, and all life (and magic) in this world has adapted to it. Hundreds of years might pass between these events—easy, plentiful years in which great cities rise, and people have the leisure for art and science and rapid advancement—but then, again and again, the cities fall. The world is littered with the detritus of these times of plenty, and this cover hints at them: past ages of decadence, now decaying; stone that endures beneath flaking gilt.

** Not much on this one yet, no date other than 2015. Still cannot wait to read this book, have read her other series and enjoyed them and ready for another.

  1. I'm looking forward to this too. I really liked The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms.
