Book Count: 3 (The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, The Stone Sky)
What It's About: This trilogy, of which every single book won a Hugo Award, follows three interconnecting perspectives as an apocalyptic Season sweeps across the continent. Damaya is a young girl, recently discovered to be an oregene (people with the power to control energy, think the Force from Star Wars meets earthbending from Avatar: The Last Airbender). Her parents send for the Guardians to come collect her and bring her to the Fulcrum to train her so she might learn to control her power. Syenite, an orogene star in the Fulcrum, is sent on a business trip with the most powerful living orogene, Alabaster. Essun is on a quest to save her daughter from her husband, who murdered their son, as the world is ending around her. Jemisin is among the best living SFF writers, and if you haven't yet picked up one of her books, do so now.
