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.
This is the way the world ends... for the last time.

APPLE BOOKS REVIEW
The final installment in N.K. Jemisin’s epic fantasy trilogy reads like a wild, dark, and chillingly lucid dream. The Stone Sky takes place in the Stillness, a supercontinent where cataclysmic earthquakes threaten human extinction. The only people who can prevent this are the enslaved orogenes who have energy-controlling superpowers; Essun, the last hope for the Stillness' inhabitants, finds herself in a deeply personal race to save them. In not-so-subtle ways, The Stone Sky's themes of environmental sabotage, oppression, and family tension contain messages that are relevant and foreboding.

Broken Earth Trilogy
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.
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.
A truly profound finale to the series: BRAVO! Ms. Jemisin is one of my new favorite authors.
