The Fifth Season

Audiobook (Includes supplementary content)

"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.

A season of endings has begun.

It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun.

It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter.

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.
