Description

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.

Well Crafted Fantasy Worth Savoring

This is one of the best books that I've read in a long time. This is not your typical run-of-the-mill fantasy adventure story; the narrative is slow and character-driven with masterful worldbuilding slowly and meticulously unveiled. The fantasy world that the author has created is interesting and fiercely original.

This is not for everyone though; the author withholds a lot of important information up front and the story itself takes it's time. If you're the kind of reader that doesn't enjoy a lot of ambiguity, and hate not really knowing what's going on for chapters on end - you are going to find this book very frustrating. It is best when savored and read with trust that everything will make sense at the end and to just soak in the beautiful writing and masterful narration. Overall, if you're a Sci-Fi / Fantasy fan and having been looking for something new and unique, this book is going to be one you make all your friends read so you can talk about it.

Confusing narrative & horrific child scene

I made it a few chapters in, the constant point of view change between 1st 2nd and omnipotent is confusing, and frustrating. I thought if I pushed through it the story would eventually flow better as I knew the characters better. But the sudden, unexpected, graphic, explanation of finding a child who had been tortured and raped essentially to death was horrific.

I would give this less than one star if I could.

This was a joyless, nihilistic plod with patchy world building. The reader over enunciates or over emphasizes certain words in an off-putting way. I'm extremely disappointed because I'd heard great things about this book. More and more, I cannot trust professional reviewers.

Bad Narrator, mediocre book

This was so disappointing! There are lots of great ideas here, but no character development, just people being nasty to each other. The only emotion anyone has is anger, whether appropriate or not for the situation. For a supposedly talented and clever person, our heroine(s) is amazingly blind, not noticing the most obvious things about the "people" around her. Like, that one is made of stone. Duh.
The reader seems to be able to express anger and sarcasm, but nothing else. For the first hour or so I thought she was doing a pretty good job, but gradually became very tired of her limited range. Why can't Audible hire better readers?

Self indulgent and painful!

Jumping from third person to second person, and all in present tense, this book appears to have won accolades in the same way a modernist painting is considered "ground breaking art" by only the most "sophisticated". I guess I'm not that sophisticated... so I'll say it: the emperor has no clothes - this is a horrible book. You have been warned.

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.

Amazing story, well told.

This was NOT the book I expected. Not in the least. The characters are vibrant, and have wonderfully developed facets slowly draw forth in the telling of the story.

I highly recommend this book.

Something about it.

Just couldn’t really get into it the plot. Goes back and forth in time. Really didn’t like it but had to finish.

Slightly odd way of storytelling

The story was amazing with two odd twists, and leaves a great cliff hanger. I would be upset if there weren't already more books out.
I only noticed one mistake from the narrator, of the whole audiobook, a mispronunciation of one word.

Not really a story for kids in the slightest bit, and plenty of allusion within it. If you aren't paying any attention, you will miss a lot.

Meh, too melodramatic for me.

I thought the world was unique and interesting but I just didn't like any of the characters. It was ok just no emotional attachment to any of the characters. Live/die/get caught didn't really matter to me only unlocking the mysteries of the world. Over hyped in my opinion.
