The Fifth Season

The Fifth Season by N. K. Jemisin (Orbit, 2015) Fantasy as it should be: immersive and original, with bonus marks for pitching diversity (of age, race, gender) as the default. The world-building is complex; yet, amidst all the soaring layers of imagination, Jemisin avoids pandering to or pointlessly bamboozling the reader.
