N. K. Jemisin - Shades ​in Shadow
From ​the shadows of the greater stories, away from the bright light of Sky and wending 'round the sagas of the Arameri, come three quieter tales.

And in a prequel to the Inheritance Trilogy, a newly-enslaved Nahadoth forges a dark alliance with a mortal, for survival... and revenge. Return to the world of The Hundred Thousand Kingdoms in these three interconnected short tales.

Meanwhile, mighty Sanze -- the world-spanning empire whose innovations have been civilization's bedrock for a thousand years -- collapses as most of its citizens are murdered to serve a madman's vengeance. And worst of all, across the heart of the vast continent known as the Stillness, a great red rift has been been torn into the heart of the earth, spewing ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries. Now Essun must pursue the wreckage of her family through a deadly, dying land. Without sunlight, clean water, or arable land, and with limited stockpiles of supplies, there will be war all across the Stillness: a battle royale of nations not for power or territory, but simply for the basic 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.

N. K. Jemisin - Az ​ötödik évszak
Három ​szörnyű dolog történik egyetlen nap leforgása alatt. A szürke kisvárosi életet élő Essun arra tér haza, hogy férje brutális módon végzett a kisfiukkal, majd elmenekült és erőszakkal magával vitte a lányukat. Eközben a hatalmas Sanza ― az egész világot befolyásoló birodalom, aminek találmányai évezredek óta a civilizáció alapjait képezik ― összedől, mert teljes lakossága egy őrült bosszújának áldozatául esik. S végül, a Rezdületlenként ismert kontinens szívében egy óriási, vöröslő repedés keletkezik, és az általa kiokádott hamu elsötétíti az eget. Egyesek szerint évekre. Mások szerint évszázadokra. Ebben a haldokló és halálos világban Essun mindent meg fog tenni, hogy megmentse a lányát, és bosszút álljon a férjén. Az utolsó tartalékaiból tengődő, napfény, ivóvíz és művelhető termőföld nélkül maradt Rezdületlenben pedig kitörni készül a háború. Egy végső, nagy leszámolás a nemzetek közt, amit nem a hatalomért vagy a földért vívnak majd, hanem a túléléshez szükséges alapvető forrásokért. Essunt viszont nem érdekli, hogy az ismert világ összeomlik körülötte: ő maga fogja puszta kézzel elpusztítani, ha ezt kell tennie a lánya megmentéséért. N. K. Jemisin az utóbbi években hívta fel magára a figyelmet az epikus fantasy olvasók körében különleges világaival és szereplőivel. Kegyelmet nem ismerő történetmesélésével pedig a műfaj rettenhetetlen férfi szerzőit is nem egyszer megszégyenítette. _Az ötödik évszak_ című regénye az eddigi legjobb műve: gyilkosság, árulás és feltépett sebek egy olyan lélegzetelállítóan idegen, de mégis ismerős világban, ahol fegyverként lehet használni a föld erejét, és ahol a halál mindenkit utolér.
