Waterstones Says

A mesmerising novel from a giant of modern science fiction writing, The City We Became furnishes New York City with a quintet of souls before unleashing an ancient evil upon the futuristic metropolis. Brimming with Jemisin’s customary imaginative flair and luminous prose, this is a glorious slice of speculative fiction.

Signed Edition with exclusive sprayed edges

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.
