Humanity will finally be saved or destroyed in the shattering conclusion to the post-apocalyptic and highly acclaimed NYT bestselling trilogy that won the Hugo Award three years in a row.

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.


  • A satisfying end to a great trilogy

    By Lazersmat
    My only beef with The Stone Sky is that it is the end. I would gladly follow Essen and Nassun around the stillness with their cadre of stone eaters, orígenes, and stills. Unfortunately all good things must come to an end, and The Broken Earth is no exception. The Stone Sky is a satisfying 5-star end to Essun’s journey. The bleak world of the Stillness during a season is told through excellent prose that brings the world to life. This book ties the story up nicely while leaving you wanting more.
  • Wonderfully done! Creative,thoughtful and intuitive.

  • Still very good

    The third and final installment of the N.K Jemisin’s Broken Earth trilogy, ‘The Stone Sky’ shows the sacrifices that must be made in the end, to preserve the lives of others and save the world from an apocalypse.
  • Broken Earth Trilogy

    By Geoff 446
    When you cry at the pain the characters...who become your good friends over the course of nearly 1800 pages with the three books...feel, and find yourself rooting for their survival, it is because you have fallen into the hands of a master writer. Thank you Ms. Jemisin.
  • Bravo!

    By SDWill
    A truly profound finale to the series: BRAVO! Ms. Jemisin is one of my new favorite authors.
  • Great conclusion

    By Bmcclosk
    This final book brings this amazing trilogy to a close. Just as exciting as the first two books.
  • Satisfying conclusion to a unique series

    By MFago
    If you have read the first two then buy this book. Perhaps not quite at the level of the first book, but sequels always loose the shine of a new unique world.
  • A beautiful ending to a beautiful story

    By Anisha Chawla
    I finished this book in one day. Jemisen brings everything back in the final chapter of this trilogy. All questions are answered and you're left with a feeling of utter satisfaction.
