Broken Earth #1: The Fifth Season
A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great rift across the world's sole continent, from which spews enough ash to darken the sky for years, or centuries. It starts with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal. And it ends with you: the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where orogenes wield the power of the earth as a weapon and are feared far more than the long cold night. And you will have no mercy.

Liaden: Dragon in Exile
Signed by both authors on the half-title page. Relocated to Surebleak, the Dragon - the banished star-trading Clan Korval - is under contract to keep the Port Road open to all traffic, and to back the New Bosses in imposing law and order on a society originally based on larceny and assassination. This is going surprisingly well, until Korval discovers that the enemy they'd sought to destroy wasn't quite destroyed, and is more determined than ever to eradicate Korval. Not to mention that some of Surebleak's native population liked the Old Ways just fine, and are conspiring to take down the New Bosses and the Dragon.
