Publisher's Summary

Continuing the trilogy that began with the multiaward-nominated The Fifth Season.

Short-listed for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards.
A New York Times Notable Book of 2015.
The inaugural Wired.com book club pick.

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.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying reference material will be available in your My Library section along with the audio.

    "I Can't Even"

    Seriously, if you are looking for the crack cocaine of speculative sci-fi/fantasy, this is it. The author is the queen of tantalising her listener/reader with titbits of information before jerking away on another tangent, such that it's half an hour later when you realise the Very Important Question hadn't been answered. Devious. I CANNOT wait for book 3.
