This is the way the world ends. Again. Three terrible things happen in a single day. Essun, masquerading as an ordinary schoolteacher in a quiet, small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Mighty Sanze, the empire whose innovations have been civilisation's bedrock for a thousand years, collapses as its greatest city is destroyed by a madman's vengeance.

Continuing the trilogy that began with the multiaward-nominated The Fifth Season. Short-listed for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards. A New York Times Notable Book of 2015. The inaugural Wired.com book club pick. The season of endings grows darker, as civilisation 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.
