Sci-Fi Book Group: The Fifth Season, by N.K. Jemisin

In this Hugo Award winning tale, the end of the world starts with a great red rift across the heart of the world's sole continent, spewing ash that blots out the sun. This is the Stillness, a land long familiar with catastrophe, where the power of the earth is wielded as a weapon by an oppressed minority called orogenes.
