Fifth Season: The Broken Earth, Book 1

 

The first in a multi-postapocalyptic Fantasy trilogy, The Fifth Season is a triumphant, layered novel of broken worlds, ever changing geology, shifting power and people’s evolution (and revolution) and of revenge. The ending of one story is just the beginning of another. It was awarded the Hugo Award for Best Novel at the 74th World Science Fiction Convention in August 2016.
