The Fifth Season
The first book in N.K. Jemisin's trilogy, The Fifth Season takes place on a planet undergoing a phase of catastrophic climate change that happens every few centuries. In a society sharply divided along class and caste lines, three women struggle to cope with the oncoming storm. They all are "orogenes," or people who have the ability to manipulate energy and temperature, and they discover a dangerous plan to end the cycle of "fifth seasons" once and for all.
