The Fifth Season: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

At the end of the world, a woman must hide her secret power and find her kidnapped daughter in this "intricate and extraordinary" (The New York Times) Hugo Award-winning novel of power, oppression, and revolution.

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.

Listen to the first book in the critically acclaimed, three-time Hugo award-winning trilogy by NYT best-selling author N. K. Jemisin.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration, so listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

"With every new work, Jemisin's ability to build worlds and break hearts only grows." (Kirkus starred review)

"The Fifth Season is a powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak.... It is a novel that demands much of its readers; it rewards them aplenty and is one of those novels that becomes more powerful after deep consideration and subsequent readings." (SFF World)

"A must-buy...breaks uncharted ground." (Library Journal starred review)

A masterpiece!

The story is fantastic, the performer truly amazing and the special sounds really adds to it.
Yes, I found the style a bit peculiar in the beginning and my partner said "it sounds as if a robot had written it", but after 20-30 minutes the story had swallowed me whole. It is brilliant! I can't wait to finish work to continue listening to it and already looking for the next book in the series.

Absolutely incredible

A masterpiece of world building and storytelling. So many can get lost in world building and ignore characters or vice versa. This builds deep characters and a deep world at the same time.

I was excited to try this author, given the glowing reviews. Personally I found the writing to be too explanatory, bland, and with distracting asides. I found the narration to be monotonous and restricted in pace and rhythm. I thought the soundtrack was going to be distracting also, but it was okay. I know this is a terrible review. I should have listened to a sample first. It's my own fault. 15 minutes was all I could handle.
