This collectable boxed set edition includes all three books in N. K. Jemisin’s incredible NYT bestselling and three-time Hugo award-winning Broken Earth Trilogy.

This complete collection would be a great gift for any occasion and includes The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and The Stone Sky.

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.


  • "Who knew a post-apocalyptic fanatsy could forge a new path over well-trodden ground while still packing an emotional punch?"
    Parade on The Stone Sky
  • "The Stone Sky ... establishes [Jemisin] as arguably the most important speculative writer of her generation... It's that good. She's that good."
    John Scalzi, Wall Street Journal on The Stone Sky
  • "[N. K. Jemisin] has pretty well conquered [the epic fantasy scene] with the Broken Earth."
    The New York Times on The Stone Sky
  • "Jemisin deliberately refuses to provide easy answers: they're simply not available, in this world or ours. Painful and powerful."
    Kirkus (starred review) on The Stone Sky
  • "Vivid characters, a tautly constructed plot, and outstanding worldbuilding meld into an impressive and timely story of abused, grieving survivors fighting to fix themselves and save the remnants of their shattered home."
    Publishers Weekly (starred review) on The Stone Sky
  • "The depth and breadth of Jemisin's achievement with this trilogy is geologic. These books are a revolution in which I want to take part."
    NPR Books on The Stone Sky
  • "Incredible, wildly original . . . [The Stone Sky is] blowing me away."
    The Verge on The Stone Sky

    Washington Post on The Stone Sky

    Light speed Magazine on The Stone Sky

    Syfy Wire on The Stone Sky
  • "Reshapes the face of epic fantasy."
    B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog on The Stone Sky
  • "Intricate and extraordinary."
    New York Times on The Fifth Season
  • "[A]n ambitious book, with a shifting point of view, and a protagonist whose full complexity doesn't become apparent till toward the end... Jemisin's work itself is part of a slow but definite change in sci-fi and fantasy."
    Guardian on The Fifth Season
  • "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."
    NPR Books on The Fifth Season

  • "[A] powerful, epic novel of discovery, pain, and heartbreak."
    SFF World on The Fifth Season
  • "Stunning and well constructed ... a book that imbues itself with deeper meaning the more it unfolds and reveals itself, and by the end, I saw everything in a new light. I knew Jemisin was talented, being a huge fan of her Inheritance and Dreamblood books, but here she employs heretofore unseen skills."
    Lightspeed on The Fifth Season
  • "Brilliant...gorgeous writing and unexpected plot twists."
    Washington Post
  • "[A]ngrily, beautifully apocalyptic."
    B&N Sci-Fi & Fantasy Blog
  • "One of the most celebrated new voices in epic fantasy."
  • "Heartbreaking, wholly unexpected, and technically virtuosic, The Fifth Season is a tour-de-force. I felt every shock--and the book is packed with them--in my marrow. It's no exaggeration to say that Jemisin expands the range of what great fantasy can be."
