Reading this book soon after its publication in March of 2020, I couldn't help but feel that N.K. Jemisin has some kind of gift for telling the future. As real-life news reports describe the horrors of a novel virus attacking cities like New York, Jemisin's The City We Became positions five individuals - avatars for each of New York's five boroughs - as the lone defenders against a mysteriouis force that threatens to destroy the whole city. An epic superhero story, and so much more.— Sally
“I love N.K. Jemisin’s books, I love New York City, and I love this book about the soul and personification of New York. The City We Became might just be my favorite book to be published in 2020. This story is filled with tension, humor, and great characters, with a guest appearance near and dear to me. While this book is the beginning of a trilogy, it is completely satisfying as a stand-alone novel. Read it and be happy.”

Five New Yorkers must come together in order to defend their city from an ancient evil in the first book of a stunning new novel by Hugo Award-winning and NYT bestselling author N. K. Jemisin.
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.
