Five New Yorkers must band together to defend their city in the first book of a stunning new series by Hugo award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N. K. Jemisin Every 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 five. But every city also has a dark side.
A roiling, ancient evil stirs beneath the earth, threatening to destroy the city and her five protectors unless they can come together and stop it once and for all.
