«Intricate and extraordinary.» – New York Times on The Fifth Season (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015)
The second novel in a new fantasy trilogy by Hugo, Nebula & World Fantasy Award nominated author N.K. Jemisin.


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.

    I will make certain of that, for you.

    (But not for you.)

    What is that supposed to mean?

    How ironic. This is the first time you’ve ever seen a stone eater made of alabaster.

    And then you are gone.

    Wait what ?

    “He left you a message,” she says. Her inflectionless voice is no different, and yet. Somehow. Is that pity? “‘The onyx is the key. First a network, then the Gate. Don’t rust it up, Essun. Innon and I didn’t love you for nothing.’”

    I fricking loved him, and still do.
