ABOUT
THE BOOK

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.

The Broken Earth trilogy begins with The Fifth Season, continues in The Obelisk Gate and concludes with The Stone Sky. Praise for this trilogy: ‘Amazing’ Ann Leckie ‘Breaks uncharted ground’ Library Journal ‘Beautiful’ Nnedi Okorafor ‘Astounding’ NPR ‘Brilliant’ Washington Post.

NOMINATING LIBRARY COMMENTS

The concluding volume of Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy goes out with a bang! This book is extraordinary – imaginative, heartbreaking and very satisfying. It’s easy to start a fantasy series and much harder to end one; Jemisin does it with style and heart.
