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.

The remarkable conclusion to the post-apocalyptic and highly acclaimed trilogy that began with the multi-award-nominated The Fifth Season.

Review of 'The Stone Sky' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is the first series (a trilogy) I finish in a very long time. Leverang a longer than usual time off, also away from computers and TVs, I enjoyed reading The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and finally back at home, The Stone Sky. This a story about motherhood mostly, and love. I like how well rounded the story is concluded, only at the last paragraphs fully understanding the way the full story is displayed.

Y así termina el mundo por última vez

4 stars

Una conclusión muy buena para esta excelente trilogía. En lo personal me harté de un par de personajes por sus decisiones y su forma de comportarse, y aunque me puso muy triste la forma en que la historia de Essun termina, me pareció apropiada. En general, una increíble historia con un potente mensaje, excelentemente escrita. Jemisin se ha convertido en una de mis autoras contemporáneas favoritas.
