Winner of the 2016 Hugo Award for Best Novel Shortlisted for the World Fantasy, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards Book 1 in the record-breaking triple Hugo-Award-winning trilogy, The Broken Earth. This is the way the world ends… for the last time. It starts with a great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal, and long dormant wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy. Breathtakingly ambitious, blisteringly brilliant and peopled with a cast of unforgettable characters, The Broken Earth trilogy - beginning with The Fifth Season, continuing in The Obelisk Gate and concluding with The Stone Sky – is the first series to win the Hugo best novel award three years in a row. A ground-breaking masterwork of contemporary fantasy fiction, this is a series not to be missed.
