Great deal on a well-reviewed book from nationwide fridge stuffers The Works. The novel's described as "science fantasy", and is the first book in a consistently highly commended three-part trilogy.

If instead you'd rather help a business that, going by the tax it pays, must by really struggling to make ends meet, you can also get it from Amazon for £2 (Prime, or non-Prime if you spend >£10 on books in total): amazon.co.uk/Fif…196.


Praise and a brief description from the back cover:

A New York Times Notable Book of 2015
Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
The inaugural Wired.com book club pick

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 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.
