Four-time Hugo Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author N.K. Jemisin crafts a glorious tale of identity, resistance, magic and myth.

All is not well in the city that never sleeps. Even though the avatars of New York City have temporarily managed to stop the Woman in White from invading—and destroying the entire universe in the process—the mysterious capital "E" Enemy has more subtle powers at her disposal. A new candidate for mayor wielding the populist rhetoric of gentrification, xenophobia, and "law and order" may have what it takes to change the very nature of New York itself and take it down from the inside. 

In order to defeat him, and the Enemy who holds his purse strings, the avatars will have to join together with the other Great Cities of the world in order to bring her down for good and protect their world from complete destruction.

N.K. Jemisin’s Great Cities Duology, which began with The City We Became and concludes with The World We Make, is a masterpiece of speculative fiction from one of the most important writers of her generation.

Not the ending I would have expected, but still such a great sequel.

I like the sequel better than the first book. This was a great read, though not the best book I've ever read, for which I reserve for five stars. The narrator was great, and did a wide variety of accents well, but her British accent repertoire was a little limited. I really enjoyed listening to this book while commuting around New York city. And now that I finished it, my New York City Life is a little less rich.

This story was made whole and fuller by this sequel. Like so many of Jemisin’s works, the fractal nature of the being experience is profoundly captured. That what we experience on the individual is amplified to the relational, collective, systemic, and inter-dimensional. It feels like a very timely tale to use to process the current moment of late capitalism we find ourselves in.
