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.
