    This is the way the world ends. For the last time. A season of endings has begun. It starts with the great, red rift across the heart of the world's sole 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-dormant wounds rising up to fester. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the Earth is wielded as a weapon. And where there is no mercy.

    This is the way the world ends, for the last time. The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night. Essun - once Damaya, once Syenite, now avenger - has found shelter, but not her daughter. Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request. But if Essun does what he asks, it would seal the fate of the Stillness forever. Far away, her daughter Nassun is growing in power - and her choices will break the world.

    The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women. Essun has inherited the power of Alabaster Tenring. With it, she hopes to find her daughter, Nassun, and forge a world in which every orogene child can grow up safe. 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 what is corrupt cannot be cleansed, only destroyed.

But when a conspiracy blooms within Gujaareh's great temple, Ehiru - the most famous of the city's Gatherers - must question everything he knows.

    Die Welt steht am Abgrund. Mitten im Herzen des größten Kontinents (genannt "The Stillness") hat sich ein flammender Spalt aufgetan, der genug Asche spuckt, um den Himmel auf Jahre hinaus zu verdunkeln. Dadurch bricht das mächtige Sanze - das weltumspannende Reich, dessen Errungenschaften seit tausend Jahren die Zivilisation bestimmen - zusammen, als der Herrscher Sanzes dem Wahnsinn verfällt, und die meisten Bürger des Reiches ermordet werden, um seiner Rache zu dienen.
