Broken Earth Trilogy, Fiction, Modern & contemporary fiction (post c 1945), Fantasy

Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel. In The Obelisk Gate N. K. Jemisin continues the highly acclaimed trilogy that began with The Fifth Season

THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS . . . FOR THE LAST TIME.

The season of endings grows darker, as civilisation 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.
