Description

Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

Book two in the record-breaking triple Hugo Award-winning trilogy.

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.

The Broken Earth trilogy begins with The Fifth Season, continues in The Obelisk Gate and concludes with The Stone Sky - out now.

Slow but hard-hitting

I love this series! It's one of the great modern sci-fi books, in my opinion. It's not about action but the development of characters in a dystopian world. Very strong female characters.

it just gets better

I loved the book. I am rather new to audible and I struggle to focus when listening to a book. The narrator, as well as the contents of the book of course, made it very easy to focus.

The second book is as good as the first!

The story keeps evolving and expanding without losing focus. A rare trilogy where the second book is at least as good as the first.

Best Books I've Read in Years

This entire trilogy was such a joy to read, even if it was quite dark in theme. Was so refreshing to have a true adult, fantasy/scfi storyline that didn't shy away from heavier topics. I was completely emersed until the very end. Best books I've picked up in many years

Brilliant Conclusion

Brilliant conclusion to the series that once again does not just continue the story, but expands it and builds something else on top of the foundation.

Beautiful storytelling, fantastic reading voice

Still one of the best fantasy triologoies I have ever read. Well-written, three-dimensional and diverse characters in a carefully constructed world. The intricate plot from the first novel continues, though easier to follow. Great choice of reading voice, too!

Robin Miles is just a genius. the story is amazing

The story is amazing enough but I would give Miles 6 or 7 stars to Miles if possible. Her way of storytelling is just so intriguing

Excellent

The story continues and is obviously planned from the start to span more than one book. Not the kind of "extruded phantasy" one often encounters which just build on a past success trying to squeeze out some more. Solid storytelling instead with a good mixture of mystery and explorative success to the reader/listener. Robin Miles is easily the best storyteller I encountered so far. A delight.

Worthy Sequel

Let's keep this review short: have you read / listened to the first book? This is the direct continuation of the story and you want to listen to it. Story, worldbuilding and performance are still as good as in the firsr one. If you don't know the first book - don't buy this one, I fear you'll not understand much.

Wenig Handlung, viele Längen. Ansonsten gute Ideen

Interessante Ideen, gute Sprecherin. War allerdings froh als ich durch war. Die Geschichte hat einige Längen und wird langatmig. Das dritte Buch habe ich auch, weiß aber nicht ob ich es lesen werde
