Summary
"Intricate and extraordinary." - New York Times on The Fifth Season

Continuing the trilogy that began with the award-winning The Fifth Season Winner of the Hugo Award
Shortlisted for the Nebula, Audie, and Locus Awards The inaugural Wired.com book club book New York Times Notable Book of 2015

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.

Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Jemisin's follow-up to The Fifth Season (2015) explores the connections between orogenes (individuals able to manipulate kinetic and seismic energy), the mysterious obelisks floating all over the Stillness, and the secretive race of subterranean beings known as the stone eaters. This time the novel follows Essun, former imperial orogene as well as her daughter, Nassun, abducted at the start of the previous novel by Essun's panicked, orogene-hating husband. Both characters begin to explore their own connections to plans to recover the moon, the loss of which precipitated a war between the sentient Father Earth himself and ancient orogenes, as well as the involvement of divergent factions within the stone eaters. Jemisin builds off of the strong foundation laid in the previous novel, further exploring the cosmology and history of her engaging setting, all the while maintaining the strong characterization and plotting that grounds the at times expansive scope of the series' action. This novel should be of interest to general fantasy readers looking for an interesting new series as well as already avid Jemisin fans.--Keep, Alan Copyright 2016 Booklist"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In this compelling, challenging, and utterly gripping work that combines elements of fantasy, science fiction, and horror, Jemisin draws readers deeper into the extraordinary setting and characters she introduced in The Fifth Season. In the world called the Stillness-which the first book hints may actually be our world, thousands of years in the future-orogenes are hated and feared for their ability to control the geological forces that shape the land. Powerful orogene Essun desperately searches for her eight-year-old daughter, Nassun, who was stolen away by her father. He hopes to find someone to "fix" the girl and excise her burgeoning orogene talent. But Essun's search is interrupted by her old mentor, Alabaster. Alabaster is dying, and he hopes to use Essun's powers to end the current "season," a disastrous change in global climate that could destroy all life, by recapturing the planet's long-lost moon, whose absence is the cause of the ironically named Stillness's geological instability. While Essun and Alabaster struggle to save the world, an ancient entity with very different goals begins gathering its own crew of young orogenes-and it has Nassun, who in this volume becomes a character as troubled, complex, and fascinating as her mother. The Stillness and those who dwell there are vividly drawn, and the threats they face are both timely and tangible. Once again Jemisin immerses readers in a complex and intricate world of warring powers, tangled morals, and twisting motivations. (Aug.) © Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved."
