  1. Unik värld med uppfriskande karaktärer
    Julia Fredriksson, 8 augusti 2017

    Styrkan är den helt unika världen i den här boken som bokhandlarna har svårt att välja om de ska placera i fantasy eller science fiction. Själv skulle jag säga att det är en fantasyberättelse i en värld med en underton av sci-fi. Berättarstilen är olik något jag tidigare läst, likaså karaktärerna, på ett uppfriskande och bra sätt.

Jemisin brilliantly illustrates the belief that, yes, imaginative world-building is a vital element of fantasy - but also that every character is a world unto herself * NPR * Fantasy novels often provide a degree of escapism: a good thing, for any reader who has something worth escaping. Too often, though, that escape comes through a fictional world that erases rather than solves the more complex problems of our own... In Jemisin's work, nature is not unchangeable or inevitable. The Fifth Season invites us to imagine a dismantling of the earth in both the literal and the metaphorical sense, and suggests the possibility of a richer and more fundamental escape * The New York Times * Heartbreaking, wholly unexpected, and technically virtuosic, THE FIFTH SEASON is a tour-de-force. I felt every shock--and the book is packed with them--in my marrow. It's no exaggeration to say that Jemisin expands the range of what great fantasy can be -- Brian Staveley
