Publisher Description

"A glorious fantasy."--Neil Gaiman
Three-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts her most incredible novel yet, a 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.For more from N. K. Jemisin, check out:

Fantastic, I love her writing! Read everything by this amazing author.
I can’t wait for the next book and the next book, but I will.

So thrilling and so much fun

What an adventure. As a Jersey boy living on the Northern Left Coast, it was a delight to see so many of the tri-state metro area’s quirks hailed and glorified as heroic power. Goosebumps and edge of my seat reading were part of the reading.

PLEASE turn this into a graphic novel.

Couldn’t put it down

I love this author. So far I’ve only been fortunate enough to read the Broken Earth Trilogy (HIGHLY recommend btw) but hey books are expensive. It was just chance that I searched her name and found this new one. So exciting!! I’m from New York so it was especially exciting. I was surprised she wrote about a real city but I think she nailed it. I feel like this author is so talented. She writes soooo weeeeeell and different than anything else I’ve read. Just even the way she writes her sentences, it’s hard to explain, but it’s just really impressive. I don’t want to give anything away, but definitely read this author if you love a fascinating imagination and content that has meaning. It makes you think and feel a lot of stuff.
