Humanity will finally be saved or destroyed in the shattering conclusion to the post-apocalyptic and highly acclaimed NYT bestselling trilogy that won the Hugo Award three years in a row.
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.
This is the way the world ends... for the last time.

  2. a good trilogy that could have been better While I overall enjoyed the trilogy, the 1st book was definitely the best. I feel the 2nd introduced extra elements that only muddied the waters, and having read the 3rd, I think they were either unneccessary, or underdeveloped. In particular the motivations of the various factions (orogenes, Guardian factions, stone eater factions, the Earth) didn't always make sense.Also this book suffers from a problem common to Fantasy books that keeps me from reading more of the genre.

  3. A Logical Conclusion Nora Jemisin puts an end to her award-winning trilogy without much fanfare, yet still to the reader's enormous satisfaction. The Stone Sky delivers exactly what it is supposed to, but in a denser and much more straightforward style than the first two books. Some reviewers have criticised this and therefore the book as ‘rushed’ as ‘anticlimatic’, but I couldn‘t agree less.
