This comes hot on the heels of THE OBELISK GATE (US | UK | AUS) winning the Hugo award for Best Novel, and a year after the first book in the trilogy, The Fifth Season, won the Hugo as well. Jemisin made history by being only the third author (and the first in 25 years) to win the Hugo award for Best Novel back-to-back.
And, there’s even more good news to share. THE FIFTH SEASON (US | UK | AUS) is now in production for a television series at TNT. The project is in development with Leigh Dana Jackson (24: Legacy, Sleepy Hollow) writing the adaptation.
The Fifth Season blew critics away with rave reviews, and The Stone Sky continues to impress readers. Here’s a sample of what they’re saying:
“The depth and breadth of Jemisin’s achievement with this trilogy is geologic. These books are a revolution in which I want to take part.” — NPR Books
“Incredible, wildly original . . . [The Stone Sky is] blowing me away.” — The Verge
“Jemisin deliberately refuses to provide easy answers: they’re simply not available, in this world our ours. Painful and powerful.”— Kirkus (starred review)
“Vivid characters, a tautly constructed plot, and outstanding worldbuilding meld into an impressive and timely story of abused, grieving survivors fighting to fix themselves and save the remnants of their shattered home.” — Publishers Weekly (starred review)
