Summary
In this sequel to the Hugo Award-winning novel The Fifth Season, the world known as Stillness is on the verge of collapse. Essun, who can harness geological forces to physically reshape her surroundings, may be able to prevent the apocalype. However, Essun's priority is searching for her lost daughter, Nassun, who travels with her father -- Essun's ex-husband who murdered their son and attempted to kill Essun for possessing an orogene's abilities. Complex characters, detailed world-building, and thought-provoking meditations on identity and human nature make this book a must-read. -- Description by Gillian Speace
