Publisher Description

Three-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts her most incredible novel yet, a "glorious" story of culture, identity, magic, and myths in contemporary New York City.

In Manhattan, a young grad student gets off the train and realizes he doesn't remember who he is, where he's from, or even his own name. But he can sense the beating heart of the city, see its history, and feel its power.

In the Bronx, a Lenape gallery director discovers strange graffiti scattered throughout the city, so beautiful and powerful it's as if the paint is literally calling to her.

In Brooklyn, a politician and mother finds she can hear the songs of her city, pulsing to the beat of her Louboutin heels.

And they're not the only ones.

Every great city has a soul. Some are ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York? She's got six.

Ppppppppppppppopttttt ,

Not really what I expected

I normally do not rate books however I feel I need to this time. The book is confusing and just can’t finish it. The theme is great but just long and I just wanted to scream. Sorry to the author for my review.

This book was such an exhilarating ride! Action packed and thought provoking, and the narrator is also phenomenal! I’ve never heard so many different accents come from one person and actually sound accurate.
