The Fifth SeasoneBook - 2015
"Intricate and extraordinary." - New York Times on The Fifth Season (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015)
WINNER OF THE HUGO AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL 2016
This is the way the world ends...for the last time.

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.
