Oh dear. I was really hoping that this volume would be as good as, or better than, the previous two. As I said in my reviews of those volumes, the story itself is very good, and the delivery, in some ways, quite excellent ( if you like being dragged by the hair through a virtual reality scenario!) That element is still there in The Stone Sky, which doesn't make for a relaxing read, but I'm not complaining about that, nor am I complaining about the three story lines, because that works well here, unlike in the first book. My real moan about this one is that it is simply too long-winded. It just didn't need to be so long, and I actually got bored with it to the extent that I wondered if I would ever finish it, and I even broke off for a couple of days to re-read another fantasy novel. I'm a fast reader, and when I get immersed in a good book, I can easily manage 100+ pages a day; I struggled to get past 20 with this one, but I wanted to do it justice by seeing how it all ended, though at times I didn't really care. In fact, it does end quite well, so another credit there; quite a few epics tend to lose it at the end, and for a while I thought that might be the case here, but it wasn't, I'm pleased to say.

I absolutely loved the first two books in this series. This was still a great book, but for me at least, it felt like more of an effort to read and lost some of what made the first books special. A lot of the plot was seriously depressing (yes, even by comparison to what's gone before) and some of it felt like it wasn't really going anywhere. On the plus side, I liked the insights into the origins of the the Seasons, told from the perspective of someone who was there, as well as the notes between each chapter giving extra hints of the world through time, and there were some intriguing and memorable scenes. It's a must read to finish off the series and an enjoyable enough read in its own right, it just didn't quite live up to what had gone before.

I've seen a few readers say they were disappointed in this finale, but for me this final installment was superb. The themes of oppression and motherhood are explored so beautifully in this book, and the relationship between Essun and Nassun gained even more meaning for me when I read in Jemisin's Acknowledgements that she was losing her own mother at the time she was writing this book. I could feel that loss so keenly on every page, and Essun in particular (though I did also love Nassun) continues to be one of the very best heroines I have ever read in SFF. I can't recommend this series enough, it's a wonder and Jemisin deserve every award she receives.

NK Jemison completes the 'Broken Earth' trilogy in very fine style, giving the story of Essun, Nessun and the Stillness to a fitting and satisfying conclusion.

The story is told in three strands. That of Essun, and the remnants of the comm of Castrima as they make a difficult forced march across the wracked continent of The Stillness to find refuge of a sort in the abandoned city of Renmanis. Concurrently, the flight of Nessun and the Guardian Schaffa from Jekitty comm, where Nessun has killed her father Jija in self defence, to Corepoint reveals the bones of the the Earth, in all its magesty and magic. These contemporary acounts are interwoven with the story of the origins of the Stillness, many thousands of years past. The reasons for the Seasons, the arrogance and hubris of the civilization of Syl Anagist is laid bare. We learn how the Guardians were made, and how the Stone Eaters came to be.

In the final confrontation, Essun and Nesun face a terrible choice. Must the Earth be ended to end the suffering, or might great sacrifice be able to mend the world.

The previous two volumes in the series have set a high bar, each being awarded a Hugo Award for best novel. The concluding volume is if anything better still. These are characters that one can feel for and care for. Even the monsters can be redeemed, and no one is free of fault or tragedy.

Gripped from book one to the end of book three. I actually started with book 2, brought in Waterstones as the staff review of the book was full of superlatives! As it proved to be part of a Trilogy, I found the second book really hard to get into, but kept at it as the writing was so good. I moved back to Book 1 on Kindle and book 3 quickly followed! Suffice to say I was HOOKED.

The Fifth Season (book 1, Hugo Award winner 2016), The Obelisk Gate (book 2, Hugo Award winner 2017) and now The Stone Sky (book 3 and last; also next year's Hugo Award winner).

I thought her earlier books were good. This trilogy is....extrodinary. I expected it to be good, but this is so far better than that. The plot is great; the world is very believable (although it shouldn't be, it is); and the way the story is told is just wonderful.

This is a new writer to me, so was a bit tentative when started book 1. However I was quickly engaged in both parts 1 and 2. The Stone Sky is part 3 of The Broken Earth Trilogy and I was desperate to read it. It did not disappoint, I read it over 2 days. If you enjoy Myth and Fantasy books, this writer is one to read.

Devoured the last part of this brilliant, moving trilogy. Part Ursula Le Guin, part Cormac McCarthy in its compassion, characterisation, and depth of vision, Jemisin nonetheless has a voice and style uniquely her own in creating an apocalypse with hope at its heart

Wow!! Where to start.... if you are lucky enough to start reading now rather than have to wait for the next book then you will probably just read them back to back. Intelligent beautiful writing. A world created similar to our own awaits with clear messages about the one we currently inhabit. I have enjoyed reading this story so much and have deeply loved all of the characters. I will miss them now the journey is complete!

this might seriously be the best book series i've ever read. it's a fantastic exploration of oppression and womanhood and a really cool mix of sci-fi and fantasy and dystopian themes, and the narration is crazy good. each chapter just gets better and better, and it starts out bloody good. i HIIIIGHLY recommend it. n.k. jemisin is very possibly an actual goddess of literature.
