Publisher's Summary

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 civilization 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 - out now.

    "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.

    "Keeps getting better!"

    Enjoyed this as much as the first one if not more! Moves at a good pace and love all the twists and changes. Struggled following the voices once or twice but otherwise great.

    Starting the next one immediately.

    "Slow but hard-hitting"

    I love this series! It's one of the great modern sci-fi books, in my opinion. It's not about action but the development of characters in a dystopian world. Very strong female characters.
