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.

This greatly anticipated ending (by me, anyways) was exactly what I wanted it to be. Exciting, heart wrenching and raw.
I wish I could give this book six stars. N.K. Jemisin's writing is brilliant. The story has left me both heartbroken and inspired. I think this might be one of the most important fantasy series in decades. It says so much about our "broken Earth," not simply the shattered, fictional world in this novel. I've been a fan of Jemisin for many years now, and she continues to amaze me. The Stone Sky reveals just how brilliant her writing is, because this book brings added meaning to little details in the previous two books. The ending is perfect, and I was shedding tears during the last few pages. Some books can scar a reader, and I'll gladly wear my scar from The Stone Sky for the rest of my life.
This series has a wonderfully original take on fantasy. It's refreshing and captivating all the way through.
Exciting and moving conclusion to an incredible trilogy. Highly recommend for newbies to the genre as well as to long time aficionados.
I am speechless.
She looks at the car running her hand on the dash "this is a pretty car "
N.K. Jemisin is a gift to readers that keeps on giving. This book is simply tremendous. A marvelous conclusion to a truly outstanding series. The world-building is astonishing and brilliant in its depth and breadth. The characters are fully realized and the emotions deep and raw. I don't keep every book I read but these will always have a place on my shelf (next to her other work!). Cannot recommend highly enough.
