N. K. Jemisin's outstanding BROKEN EARTH trilogy has broken records and boundaries, making her the only novelist to have won three Hugo awards in three consecutive years.

This beautifully presented box set collects all three books for the the first time.

Set in a world of volcanoes and earthquakes, where the power of the earth can be wielded and won, these remarkable novels of warring factions, twisted morals, an Earth shattered and a family torn apart, weave into a narrative both 'intricate and extraordinary' (New York Times).

This box set is the perfect gift for fans of game-changing fantasy fiction.

Book 1: THE FIFTH SEASON
This is the way the world ends . . . for the last time. It starts with the great red rift across the heart of the world's only continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. It starts with death, with a murdered son and a missing daughter. It starts with betrayal and long festering wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth can be used as a weapon . . . and where there is no mercy.

Book 2: THE OBELISK GATE
The Season of endings grows darker, as civilization 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.

Book 3: THE STONE SKY
The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women. Essun has inherited the phenomenal power of Alabaster Tenring. With it, she hopes to find her daughter, Nassun, and forge a world in which every outcast child can grow up in safety. For Nassun, her mother's mastery of the Obelisk Gate comes too late. She has seen the evil of the world and accepted what her mother will not admit: that sometimes the corrupt cannot be cleansed, only destroyed. The fate of the world is balanced between a mother and her daughter.

MEDIA REVIEWS
Brilliant . . . gorgeous writing and unexpected plot twists

Astounding . . . Jemisin maintains a gripping voice and an emotional core that not only carries the story through its complicated setting, but sets things up for even more staggering revelations to come

Exceptional . . . those who anxiously awaited this sequel will find the only problem is that the wait must begin again once the last page is turned

Vivid characters, a tautly constructed plot, and outstanding worldbuilding meld into an impressive and timely story
