A conclusion, an ending, and a powerful-POWERFUL story. The kind of book that, once you finish it, you just need to take a few minutes to sit. Read it, and take all the time you need.

Oh my god these books! We get to hear from Hoa (which was amazing - the whole thing is from him but you know what I mean!), Essun and Nassun. Everything just seems to come a bit more together and I finally felt like I knew who was on what…

I really think this series should be read as a whole- not as individual sections. They go together so well and so naturally that when I began this one, it was as if I had just finished and placed down Obelisk Gate. I get the feeling that…

I really wanted to love this third instalment as much as I loved the first two books in the trilogy. But it fell short. I found it harder to be interested in the characters and relationships across multiple story lines, and the writing was…

Minor SPOILERS below. * * * As a series, the Broken Earth Trilogy is very strong. As a single book concluding the trilogy, I must say that The Stone Sky is the weakest of the three books. While still incredibly imaginative, gripping, and…

4.5 🌟 The Stone Sky begins with Essun and her daughter Nassun both aware of the moon's approach to its perigee. Each knows that she can use her power to grab the moon but each wants to do so for a different purpose. They each take…

3rd book of trilogy

There is a reason why Jemisin won the Hugo award three years in a row for the three books she wrote in this, the Broken Earth trilogy. The only other occasion that comes to mind where an author has delivered fantasy with such deft and…

The third and concluding volume of what I think is one of the very best fantasy-science fiction series ever written. Each of the volumes won the Hugo Award for Best Novel. The conclusion is exciting and satisfying, answering most of the…

Fantastic ending to the trilogy, but a word of warning to hard core science fiction fans: this final installment relies even more heavily than the first two on devices of pure fantasy and magic, the utter absurdity of which occasionally…

The third book in a truly excellent series. Jemisin does some amazing world building, with deep history and metaphysics that follow well, and believable characters. There's great depth here, and an awe-inspiring story. I'll also add…

Such an amazing trilogy. Fantasy fans: start with The Fifth Season.

Yes, yes, yes. I would clearly rank Jemisin in the group with Tolkien, Lewis and Martin. Her storytelling is powerful and relatable. She has created a fantasy world, I can see and feel every entity in it, without being there. She never…

A must read for fans of fantasy or sci-fi. It’s so good!
Sep 18, 2018OPL_DavidD rated this title 5 out of 5 stars
A satisfying ending to an excellent series. I love the way Jemisin is able to draw from themes, such as generational conflict and how our experiences change us, that she was able to set up in the first book. It's rare to get such a fresh…

As a conclusion to the trilogy, The Stone Sky did everything it needed to. There was resolution that didn't seem Deus Ex Machinaed and we got to see the characters we'd grown to know deal with bigger and bigger challenges. While I enjoyed…

I'm a little late in reviewing this book, considering I flew through it. So. Rusting. Well. Done. It is the climatic ending to the trilogy that took my breath away. And at its core was a mother-daughter story that just captured my heart.…

The only ending that makes sense but still manages to take you by surprise and not totally destroy you in every way. This series was fantastic and this was a perfect send off for it. I am very close to picking up the Fifth Season and…

This completion of the Stone Earth trilogy builds to the expected showdown between mother and daughter to determine the future of the volcanically riven Earth and the last of humanity clinging to life on its surface. The backstory of how…

Best ending to a fantasy trilogy since Return of the King
