The Stone Sky


The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin is the 2017 third book in the Broken Sky trilogy. Each of these won a Hugo Award. I can recommend this entire series. I tend to prefer science fiction and this is more Fantasy than I usually read, but the series is impressive -deep with character development and immersive world-building.

from the back of the book:
THE FINAL SEASON FALLS

Essun has mastered the Obelisk Gate. But halfway across the Stillness a pretender rises: Nassun. As the icy white eye of the Moon opens above the world, ancient battle lines are redrawn between mother and daughter, stone eater and orogene, slave and rebel. The destruction of humankind -or something worse- looms nigh.
The New York Times has a positive review, as does NPR, The Verge, Kirkus Reviews, and Publishers Weekly.

I have also read the first two:
  1. The Fifth Season
  2. The Obelisk Gate

  1. I have started to read a bit of fantasy to shake up my reading tastes, and I just added these to my Amazon wish list, which is my reading and movie list when I am looking for something. It's good to read something a bit out of the ordinary book, I think. Thanks for sharing. Hugs-Erika

    1. I only read the series because it won that award lol, but I'm glad I gave it a shot.

      I love that blog posts just sit here, and commenting can happen any time. That's one reason I like texts more than phone calls.
