On this fifth day of the 12 Days of Christmas Ebook Giveaway Extravaganza, my gift to you is... The Fifth Season by N.K. Jemisin, book one in The Broken Earth trilogy.
This apocalyptic fantasy is just so good, the first two books both won the Hugo Award for Best Novel two years in a row (and I don't want to jinx the final book since it only came out a few months ago, but if you consulted a Magic 8-Ball about its three-peat chances, the outlook would probably be good. I'm just saying). The Fifth Season is also now being adapted for TV, so you should totally get in on this one — especially since it's free to enter!
ICYMI, the 12 Days of Christmas Ebook Giveaway extravaganza type thing is me giving away one ebook from an awesome sci-fi or fantasy author every day for twelve days! The giveaway ends on December 23 and all the winners will receive their gifts via email on Christmas Eve. So go forth and enter, you SFF book loving fool... and happy holidays!

"Intricate and extraordinary." - New York Times on The Fifth Season (A New York Times Notable Book of 2015)
WINNER OF THE HUGO AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL 2016
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.
