Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel. Sequel to the multi-award nominated The Fifth Season. The season of endings grows darker, as civilisation fades into the long cold night. Essun has found shelter, but not her missing daughter. Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request only Essun can grant. The Broken Earth trilogy begins with The Fifth Season, continues in The Obelisk Gate and concludes with The Stone Sky.

Still one of the best fantasy triologoies I have ever read. Well-written, three-dimensional and diverse characters in a carefully constructed world. The intricate plot from the first novel continues, though easier to follow.

Great choice of reading voice, too!

This is the way the world ends...for the last time. It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world, 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.

Amazing story, very well written. Fantastic world building and characterisation. Complex world and nuanced discussions of oppression. Jemisin deserves all the praise she's been getting and more. Reading voice is well chosen and easy to listen to.
