When Essun discovers that her husband has killed their son because of his frightening power, she quests across a vast crumbling continent in search of him. Jemisin imagines a world in which the continued survival of civilization rests on the forced labor of "oregenes," humans with the power to control earthquakes. Dark, terrifying, brilliantly creative, THE FIFTH SEASON is an unsettling analogue of our own world.
