Can love survive such training? Jemisin deliberately refuses to provide easy answers: they’re simply not available, in this world or ours. Painful and powerful.
-Kirkus

Synopsis

The shattering conclusion to the post-apocalyptic and highly acclaimed New York Times bestselling trilogy that began with The Fifth Season, winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2016, and The Obelisk Gate, winner of the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2017.

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.

From a storytelling perspective, The Stone Sky satisfied me completely. With the same fiercely compelling voice and character work that made the first two volumes so eminently devourable...

Indeed it feels like only one conceivable future, and not the worst imaginable: It’s a better organized, more utopian and also more totalitarian society than any we have yet created.
