Publisher's Summary

This is the way the world ends...for the last time.
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.
The remarkable conclusion to the postapocalyptic and highly acclaimed trilogy that began with the multiaward-nominated The Fifth Season.

Ends weakly

Generally a good trilogy, though the story seems to run out if gas in book 3. I was confused most of the way through this meandering wrap up. I was left unsatisfied.

An incredible imagination. Totally original.

Don't think I've ever read a set of books with such a unique "world" view. The resolution of the narratives is awe inspiring. I think we can all agree that making a better world is a universal necessity and desire. The framework in which she makes this simple point is complex and challenging and worth every minute.
