I’m N.K. Jemisin. Explore any of my books below!

The Great Cities

Every great city has a soul. Some are as ancient as myths, and others are as new and destructive as children. New York City? She’s got six.

But every city also has a dark side. A roiling, ancient evil stirs in the halls of power, threatening to destroy the city and her six newborn avatars unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.

How Long ‘Til Black Future Month

The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms

Gods and mortals. Power and love. Death and revenge.

In the Hundred Thousand Kingdoms, gods dwell among mortals and one powerful, corrupt family rules the earth. Three extraordinary people may be the key to humanity’s salvation.

The Dreamblood

A tale of culture and empire, war and religion…and the realm of dreams.

In the desert city-state of Gujaareh, peace is the only law. Priests of the dream-goddess maintain order: harvesting the dreams of the citizens, healing the injured, and guiding the dreamers into the afterlife… whether they’re ready to die or not.

The Broken Earth

This is the way the world ends. Again. 

In this Hugo-Award-winning series, there will be war all across the Stillness: a battle royale of nations for the resources necessary to get through the long dark night. Essun does not care if the world falls apart around her. She’ll break it herself, if she must, to save her daughter.
