'A glorious fantasy' Neil Gaiman



'The most celebrated science fiction and fantasy writer of her generation . . . Jemisin seems able to do just about everything' NEW YORK TIMES



'Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold' ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY

***Nominated for the Nebula Awards***



Five New Yorkers must band together to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by multi Hugo award-winning and New York Times 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.
