The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin is the second most recent Hugo winning novel and one I've heard an awful lot about over the last two years. I'm eager to get to this one.

Use the appropriate spoiler code when talking about plot details and such.

Sophie (romeowyn) I hope you guys enjoy this book. I've read it a year ago and it was so striking. Best fantasy and best book I've read in a long while.

Oh, I'm so excited to see the conversation has started for this book. I thought it was terrible, but so many people really loved it, so I'm interested to see what everyone's opinions are!

I've read this one twice, once when it first came out and then I reread it when The Stone Sky was released. While I do have a few problems with certain elements of the story, overall I think the trilogy is excellent.
