Publisher Description

At the end of the world, a woman must hide her secret power and find her kidnapped daughter in this "intricate and extraordinary" Hugo Award winning novel of power, oppression, and revolution. (The New York Times)
This is the way the world ends...for the last time.
It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester.

This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

Read the first book in the critically acclaimed, three-time Hugo award-winning trilogy by NYT bestselling author N. K. Jemisin.

Great read, great beginning!

Loved the entire book. Really get into worlds made up in their entirety by the author. So much description, so much love, so much hate, so much adventure!

I will be reading the rest of this series when the rest of her books come out. For the record, I finished this book in one sitting. For me, it was that good. It was the perfect read when the power went out during a tropical storm that hit big island Hawaii.

Definitely getting the rest of the series, definitely !

Somewhat disappointed

I liked the world the author created, (not that I’d want to live in it), and unlike other reviewers I had no problems with the use of present tense or the writing style in general. I probably would have continued the series with the next book, if not for some gratuitous and in my opinion non-sensical events towards the end. I don’t want to spoil anything, but suffice it to say it were things one would expect in some edgy romance novel maybe, most likely there to satisfy some teen’s fantasies, but here it added nothing to the narrative, world, or characters, which I never ended up warming up to.

Personally I can’t follow the wild acclaim, and the book is definitely on the shorter side, too. I love Fantasy and have read many series, and while this started out promising - I guess it’s just not for me.
