Quite possibly the best book you’ll ever read.

Jemisin is such a great storyteller. I bought this back in January and it was sitting on the shelf for 3 months before I picked it up. I can’t believe I didn’t read it sooner. This is a book you will not want to put down. She pulls you in from the very beginning. I recommended this book to everyone I know. Get this book!! You won’t regret it.

this book and this series will change your life. enjoy
