"Intricate and extraordinary." - New York Times on The Fifth Season (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015)

Continuing the trilogy that began with the multi-award-nominated The Fifth Season
  • Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Audie, and Locus Awards
  • The inaugural Wired.com book club book

This is the way the world ends, for the last time.

The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night.

Essun -- once Damaya, once Syenite, now avenger -- has found shelter, but not her daughter. Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request. But if Essun does what he asks, it would seal the fate of the Stillness forever.

Far away, her daughter Nassun is growing in power - and her choices will break the world.
