Jemisin, N.K. - The Fifth Season

This is the way the world ends.

Extraordinary worlds, extraordinary endings, witnessed by extraordinary characters. This is N.K. Jemisin’s The Fifth Season, the Hugo Award-winning, Nebula and World Fantasy Award-nominated tour de force of language, incident, and, most of all, of people. Three women in three times—youthful Damaya, skillful Syenite, and the older Essun—each face the challenges of the end times of their world. Their stories are inextricable, yet unique, lined in voices and tones specific and necessary to each character.

The world of The Fifth Season is the Broken Earth, a world clearly extrapolated from our own, but just as clearly and marvelously an invention of its author. The geographies and politics alike are contoured from the stuff of both life and imagination, combining into the rare fantastic setting that is as fascinating as the characters who inhabit it and the stories they find themselves in.

Death and betrayal haunt the women who live in these pages. Apocalypses both world-spanning and personal try them, and if there are escapes to be forged, they will not be those a reader expects.

This is the way world the ends… in Jemisin’s unforgettable novel, with tumult, and revelation, and hope.

Jemisin, N.K. - The Obelisk Gate

Among the last recorded words of Emperor Mutshatee, before his execution, were these: “Don’t be fooled.”

Here, in the The Obelisk Gate, the Hugo-award winning second volume of The Broken Earth from New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin, there is little chance of that for the reader, for you. Truth and clarity shine from these pages, except when darkness falls and even then a sure, strong voice always leads you on, leads you through, leads you up and out.

But will Essun—once Damaya, once Syenite, now avenger—be fooled? Will the request made of her by Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, seal the fate of the Stillness forever, or is something stranger and even more dangerous in the offing?

And will her daughter Nassun, coming into her full power as an orogene, ever find her mother? Will either of them discover the secret of why the catastrophic Fifth Seasons periodically savage the Stillness?

In this story of their separate journeys to find one another and to uncover the truth of their world’s terrible, cyclic wracking, Essun and Nassun face even greater challenges than they did in The Fifth Season. Greater mysteries, too, with answers offered from strange sources that compel and tantalize, if they can be trusted. If those offering the answers are not trying to play you the fool.

Jemisin, N.K. - The Stone Sky

This is the story of two celestial bodies, the Earth and the Moon, their orbits closing towards catastrophe and devastation. This is the story of two women, a mother and a daughter, their paths destined to cross in tumult and tragedy. This is The Stone Sky, the Nebula and Hugo award-winning  third volume of The Broken Earth series from New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin.

Essun awakens, possessed of the power of Alabaster Tenring, and learns that the Moon is approaching, bringing with it a tenuous opportunity to end the Fifth Seasons forever. But her daughter Nassun, possessed of a fratricide’s guilt, has her own plans for the great stone in the sky. The decisions and actions of these women have already wrought and wracked the world, but now one of them may change it permanently. And the other may end it.

Perilous journeys, heartbreaking endings, and extraordinary revelations about everything from the nature of magic to the nature of humanity speed this eloquent tale, a tale long in the making, exquisite in the telling, and generous in the sharing.

 How Long 'til Black Future Month? by N.K. Jemisin 

This first collection by multiple award-winning novelist N. K. Jemisin demonstrates the enormous reach of her shorter work, which is galaxy-wide and eons-deep. Opening with the audacious “The Ones Who Stay and Fight,” a story in direct conversation with Ursula K. Le Guin’s unforgettable “The Ones Who Walk Away from Omelas,” How Long ‘Til Black Future Month includes among other joys an adventure tale set in a steamfunky 19th-century New Orleans (“The Effluent Engine”); a strangely plausible, deeply moving depiction of the virtual survivors of a real-life apocalypse (“Too Many Yesterdays, Not Enough Tomorrows”); and an opulently sensual account of wealthy gourmets playing havoc with taste and time (“Cuisine des Mémoires”). Plus the appearances here of “Stone Hunger,” set in the world of her acclaimed Broken Earth trilogy, and “The Narcomancer,” set in the world of her Dreamblood duology, help us see all forms of Jemisin’s writing as part of a glorious whole.

The City We Became (Great Cities #1)

Five New Yorkers must come together in order to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and NYT 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.

N. K. Jemisin brings her reality-ripping storytelling skills to her own backyard of New York City in this vivid series starter. In 'The City We Became', few people realize that Earth’s grandest cities—London, Hong Kong, São Paolo, and others—are alive. When New York City tries to join that select group, five people in the city unexpectedly become the living embodiments of each of the city’s five boroughs. Unfortunately, the first thing they learn is that the newborn city is under attack from a very ancient enemy that has successfully killed cities before, and now the five New Yorkers are targets as well. More fortunately, the city’s avatars soon discover that with great responsibility comes great powers. Paranormal battles on top of cabs, hidden subway stations, New York City politics, and local artists’ galleries thread through each other in a live-wire love letter to the city and its diverse denizens. While Jemisin has won awards with her previous novels, this one may be the most likely to win readers’ hearts as well.

The Inheritance Trilogy:

The Subterranean Press Limited Editions:

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Dust jacket and interior illustrations by Reiko Murakami.

"There were three gods once.

Only three, I mean. Now there are dozens, perhaps hundreds. They breed like rabbits. But once there were only three, most powerful and glorious of all: the god of day, the god of night, and the goddess of twilight and dawn. Or light and darkness and the shades between. Or order, chaos, and balance. None of that is important because one of them died, the other might as well have, and the last is the only one who matters anymore.

The Arameri get their power from this remaining god. He is called the Skyfather, Bright Itempas, and the ancestors of the Arameri were His most devoted priests. He rewarded them by giving them a weapon so mighty that no army could stand against it. They used this weapon—weapons, really—to make themselves rulers of the world."

Yeine Darr is an outcast from the barbarian north. But when her mother dies under mysterious circumstances, she is summoned to the majestic city of Sky. There, to her shock, Yeine is named an heiress to the king. But the throne of the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms is not easily won, and Yeine is thrust into a vicious power struggle with a pair of cousins she never knew she had. As she fights for her life, she draws ever closer to the secrets of her mother's death and her family's bloody history. With the fate of the world hanging in the balance, Yeine will learn how perilous it can be when love and hate - and gods and mortals - are bound inseparably together.

The Dreamblood Duology by N.K. Jemisin 

The Dreamblood Duology includes the novels 'The Killing Moon' and 'The Shadowed Sun'.

The city burned beneath the Dreaming Moon.

In the ancient city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Upon its rooftops and amongst the shadows of its cobbled streets wait the Gatherers -- the keepers of this peace. Priests of the dream-goddess, their duty is to harvest the magic of the sleeping mind and use it to heal, soothe... and kill those judged corrupt.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru -- the most famous of the city's Gatherers -- must question everything he knows. Someone, or something, is murdering dreamers in the goddess' name, stalking its prey both in Gujaareh's alleys and the realm of dreams. Ehiru must now protect the woman he was sent to kill -- or watch the city be devoured by war and forbidden magic.

Both signed/limited editions published by Orbit for Anderida Books and limited to 300 copies only.
