    The Stone Sky By N.K. Jemisin

    The Stone Sky The Broken Earth Jemisin, N K Instead, The Stone Sky is a surprisingly quiet novel The principle action unfolds through conversations between the characters and through lengthy flashback sequences revealing how the Earth lost the Moon in the first place and how the highly advanced civilisation which caused the Shattering fell from grace. The Stone Sky The Broken Earth, by N.K Jemisin The Stone Sky, contrary to my expectation, has somehow become one of the best conclusions to a trilogy I ve ever read, it s simply extraordinary My experience reading this trilogy can be summed up as if I m on a see saw I loved the first book, dislike and disappointed with the second book, and then this one, I absolutely loved it. The Stone Sky The Broken Earth Book Kindle edition Yet The Stone Sky is tremendous both in its own right, as a separate book, and as a way to cap the series Extraordinarily ambitious writing, unrivalled structural originality, breathtaking world building and unbelievably enticing plot, this is all The Broken Earth has to offer and then some.

      ARC provided by Hachette in exchange for an honest review.1 The Fifth Season 2 The Obelisk Gate Some worlds are built on a fault line of pain, held up by nightmares Don t lament when those worlds fall Rage that they were built doomed in the first place You guys, I m speechless I m not sure if I ve ever read as perfect of a conclusion as The Stone Sky The Stone Sky easily makes my best of 2017 list, and is also without a doubt one of the most powerful masterpieces I ve ever read in my entire life [...]

      There s really no easy way to put this, so I ll come right out and say it.This is one of the very best stories I ve ever read All together now, all three books in this trilogy, together, make up one hell of a great story.I am amazed I cried I was blown away by the sheer immensity of what was going on, of the implications and the revelations and the final action.Sure, we knew that one of two things must happen by the end of the second book, but I hadn t quite realized just how invested I d have g [...]

      I don t know what the hell just happened I m going to have to re read the whole trilogy again next year I m leaving this as being my mood because I enjoyed the first two books Damn it Mel

    5. Mary ~Ravager of Tomes~ on said:

      Oh well gee, golly, gosh, let me just to review this masterpiece, no problem, easy peasy The further I get into a series, the harder it is for me to review each individual book because so much of my opinion relies on understanding everything that happened in the preceding books More than usual, I find it so difficult to express what this series has made me feel Just saying it was amazing or it was mind blowing starts to feel repetitive those common compliments don t really do the novel justice T [...]

      5ish stars This is an incredible series and a huge accomplishment for its author, N.K Jemisin It has every element of high quality fiction and, particularly, everything great about SFF It s decidedly new age, but in a way that I don t doubt will stand the test of time It s innovative in the way that Ursula K Le Guin s work was innovative in the 60s and 70s and continues to be influential today and, maybe I m foolish for saying this too soon, but I think it has the same potential to reach classic [...]

      And this is how you end a trilogy This book was quite possibly definitely my most anticipated book of the year N K Jemisin has yet to dissappoint me and I just love love love her brand of fantasy I love how intricate and well thought out her worlds are and how political they are at their core while she still never ever sacrifices her story to make a point The final installment made me appreciate the overall brilliant work she has done in creating this cruel, wonderful, amazing world even This w [...]

      If you had the power to end the world, would you do it Looking around, seeing the structural injustice, the corrupted power, contentment of the few and misery of the millions, would you just decide to erase or would you devote your life and try to fix it Is humanity worth saving or is it beyond redemption As we conclude our journey through the Broken Earth, this is the main question N.K Jemisin invites us to ponder over Would you side with Essun, who warped and broken, reborn under different nam [...]

    10. Thomas Wagner on said:

      Now this is how you end a trilogy.N.K Jemisin s Broken Earth trilogy has been about so many things But I suppose the only way to talk about how brilliantly it climaxes, without robbing you of the pleasure of experiencing it yourself, is to say simply that Jemisin not only delivers but overdelivers on reader expectations And she does it in a way that might make you appreciate how rarely series fiction manages to satisfy so well when it comes time for the final curtain While I don t believe that s [...]

    11. Bibi on said:

      Spoilers You know there s something wrong when a major character dies yet it leaves you unmoved Having cruised through the preceding serials, I was underwhelmed by this conclusion Not helping was the Info dumping, likewise the glaring plot hole of the Onyx and Garnet Obelisk read book one again to sess the inconsistency Additionally, the author s attempts at bringing some social issues to the fore was heavy handed, which is a shame really since the reader already caught on to these nuances right [...]

    12. Gary on said:

      In my review for The Obelisk Gate, I wrote that it felt like the first half of a novel, so I am not surprised that The Stone Sky feels like the second half of that novel I think I might have preferred if Jemisin had simply released these last to books as a single volume, so I didn t feel so much like I had to wait a year to read the rest of a book Some of The Stone Sky feels padded, and in particular the chapters that deal with the origin of the stone eaters could have been saved for a companio [...]

      1 Malazan Book of the Fallen2 Stormlight Archives 3 Manifest Delusions4 Long Price Quartet 5 Broken Earth Needless to say cracking my top 5 series of all time list every book in this series was a full five stars The top two are set in stone but the next three are all pretty close and yet so distinctly different in concept This story hit home for me on so many levels First it s an epic story transitioning over 40,000 years The back story given to us in a trickle is brilliantly dispatched both in [...]

      Wow I m not sure of my final rating yet, but let me tell you, this series is an experience RTC

      Not so much change, all things considered, but then now is nothing ago, tectonically speaking When we say that the world has ended , remember it is usually a lie The planet is just fine.What do we call this lost world, this now , if not the Stillness Tectonically speaking, this is the most grandiose epic to hit fantasy shelves in a very long time But calling this exceptional series epic fantasy is selling it cheap this is one of the best stories about the human condition I have read in any genre [...]

      A pretty solid 4 star finish to the series that ties up most of the loose ends.Less than a week after publication and I see there are already quite a few 5 star, favourite book status reviews out there While I definitely liked this book, and thought it was well written and creative, I didn t think it quite matched the brilliant storytelling impact of the first book, The Fifth Season.What makes Jemisin s books such a joy to read are the combination of unique voice and imaginative worldbuilding th [...]

      This book opens at the peak of edgy grimdark with this little gem And I will tell you everything of how, later, as the quiet of death descended, I whispered Right now.Right now.And the Earth whispered back Burn.Which is so melodramatic that I could only imagine Hoa dressed as a teenage goth girl and I laughed out loud.The Broken Earth is hateful trilogy of hating so it s appropriate that book 3 emphasised that the Earth was alive and conscious and really really hated humanity Like every other ch [...]

      I m still fumbling with my mind to produce some words to describe this brilliance, and I simply cannot This series is too precious and too important for me to describe in words It s so difficult to tell y all how many emotions this book is making me feel because rusting earth, there are so many I think this book is perfect on every level be it the world buiding, the characters, the relationships, mixing of magic and science, everything is done down to the perfection I am still speechless in fron [...]

      Last book, as any last book in the series that means something to you, goes slower since you re trying to prolong the inevitable.End.And after couple of days doing just that, sadly, I had to finish it.Truly satisfying conclusion to one of the most innovative trilogy I had pleasure to read Where there is pain in this book, it is real pain where there is anger, it is real anger where there is love, it is real love More so because it indeed felt intimate and real.Thank you, Nora.

    21. Aristea on said:

      The absolutely best part of this book and series is how powerful the feelings are Described in a masterful way, the relationships are described with a raw power in a way that makes the feeling associated with the person come to life It is also an interestingly complicated world, worth reading and take in

    22. Katie on said:

      Such a great ending but how am I supposed to go on now this series is over

    23. Ashley on said:

      I give up on writing an intelligent, thoughtful review of this book It has defeated me for almost two months, and I now take this opportunity to concede Perhaps eventually I will be able to write coherently and comprehensively about this series, but for now, I will say that she stuck the landing, she stuck it good, and I will most certainly be revisiting the series as a whole in the future.I will also say that I was happy with the ending because it did what I like my endings to do It didn t wrap [...]

      Now that The Broken Earth trilogy has come to an end, it is time for me to reflect a bit on this book and the series as a whole There s no secret that this series was one of my favorite ongoing fantasy series and with The Stone Sky marking the conclusion of the series, I can now elevate this to my favorite completed fantasy series ever It might be the recency bias, but I honestly can find no flaw with this series at least nothing to affect my enjoyment of it All the burning questions that I had [...]

    25. Monica **can't read fast enough** on said:

      The Stone Sky is the ending of one of the best series that I have ever read As a matter of fact, it is the best concluding book that I can remember reading Jemisin draws her readers in immediately into what happens after the climactic events in The Obelisk Gate She wastes no time in showing the desperation and urgency that everyone is facing Essun has been forced to a destiny and fate that she did not want to choose She is now physically paying the cost of her choices, while facing the scrutiny [...]

    26. Emily (BellaGrace) on said:

      Out of the trilogy this one was my least favorite I found Nasuun to be really annoying and I never liked any of the Castrima people the way I like Alabaster and the people on the island from the first book I also thought there were some overly long descriptions of buildings and machines from the pre shattering world that made parts drag on for me I did like getting the rest of Hoa s story The stone eaters were my favorite part of book 3 Overall it was a great series, I would recommend it, I thin [...]
