N.K. Jemisin’s latest novel, The City We Became, hit shelves yesterday.

NPR had already shared an early excerpt of the novel, which depicts a world in which cities literally come alive, and the human avatars that represent them must face an evil from beyond.

Now it’s Literary Hub’s turn to share (with permission) a segment of the book.

If you’re waiting for your print copy to arrive or your library hold on it, tide yourself over with this excerpt of The City We Became; and if you're on the fence about starting it, check out NPR's review of the novel.

Jemisin, who writes science fiction and fantasy, became the first author to win three straight Hugo Awards for best novel; her work has also received the Nebula and Locus awards, among other honors.
