Summary, etc.:
"Five New Yorkers must come together in order to save their city from destruction in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and NYT bestselling author N. K. Jemisin. 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. When a young man crosses the bridge into New York City, something changes. He doesn't remember who he is, where he's from, or even his own name. But he can feel the pulse of the city, can see its history, can access its magic. And he's not the only one. All across the boroughs, strange things are happening. Something is threatening to destroy the city and her six newborn avatars unless they can come together and stop it once and for all"-- Provided by publisher.
Reviews

  • Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2019 December #1
    *Starred Review* Jemisin's latest novel expands her short story The City Born Great (from How Long 'Til Black Future Month, 2018) about the birth of the avatar of New York City. As the primary avatar of the city lies in a coma, five people begin to experience mysterious new powers as they each become an avatar for one of the City's five boroughs. Each of the new avatars must deal with the attentions of the Enemy, a mysterious force determined to stop the birth of any new city. The Woman in White, a bizarre and alien creature disguised in human form, unleashes not only strange eldritch creatures from another reality but also uses the forces of racism and gentrification to try to frustrate the new boroughs at every turn. With all this and possible betrayal by one of their own, the newborn avatars of New York City have their work cut out for them. While a marked shift from Jemisin's usual creation of magical other worlds, this contemporary fantasy of living cities in a multiversal struggle demonstrates her accomplished storytelling and characterization. Highly recommended for anyone interested in some of the most exciting and powerful fantasy writing of today. [HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Triple-Hugo-winner (for the Broken Earth trilogy) Jemisin's latest will attract both media attention and curious readers, even those who don't typically read genre fiction.] Copyright 2019 Booklist Reviews.

Author Notes

N. K. Jemisin is the first author in history to win three consecutive Best Novel Hugo Awards, all for her Broken Earth trilogy. Her work has also won the Nebula, Locus, and Goodreads Choice Awards. She has been a reviewer for the New York Times Book Review, and an instructor for the Clarion and Clarion West writing workshops. In her spare time, she is a gamer and gardener, and she is also single-handedly responsible for saving the world from King Ozzymandias, her dangerously intelligent ginger cat, and his phenomenally destructive sidekick Magpie.
