Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Best Book of the Year, 2017
The incredible conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Hugo Award-winning The Fifth Season


Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
A New York Times Notable Book
The inaugural Wired.com book club pick

The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women.
Essun has inherited the phenomenal power of Alabaster Tenring. With it, she hopes to find her daughter Nassun and forge a world in which every outcast 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.

Great Series!

Listened to nine hours of this book over two days. Fascinated about how it was going to end! Really enjoyed the series! Found this book slightly slower than the first two.

Perfect narration

Fantastic conclusion to a great series, though a bit slow and complicated in parts. Definitely worth pushing through those parts to get to the ending though. Satisfying.

Brilliant Trilogy

Achingly brilliant post-apocalyptic sci fi fantasy. I am overawed by the depth and complexity of this trilogy. The destructive force of the planet matched only by the destructive force of prejudice directed at those who could actually save the planet.
If your young daughter has the magical ability to cause earthquakes how do you ensure that she controls and doesn't use that gift, because you are in hiding and the consequences of being found out are dire. In book 3 the fate of the planet pivots on the dysfunctional mother/daughter relationship created by this circumstance. The climax of this book more than equals the often harrowing journey. Flawed characters and the reason for their flaws. Listening to these books was a fabulous experience. Such warmth and depth and originality and heartache.
N.K. Jemisin you rock (no pun intended)! I predict you get the Hugo for this book - that's a well deserved 3 for 3.
Excellent narration by Robin Miles.
