The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin

Stone SKy

Amazon | Goodreads

Fantasy Trilogy (Book 3)

5/5 Stone Eaters

This is book 3 in the Broken Earth trilogy:

  1. The Fifth Season – 5/5 Earthquakes
  2. The Obelisk Gate – 5/5 Crystals
  3. The Stone Sky – 5/5 Stone Eaters

This trilogy is delightful and haunting, beautiful and scary. What does it mean to be a human and how can we make the world and its inhabitants agree with us? What do we do when the world does not want to change?

What is it about?

At the beginning of book 1, a cataclysmic event causes a rifting in the earth destroying most of its surface and causing the remaining inhabitants to fight for their life against ever increasing odds. By the time you get to book 3 you might see a light at the end of the tunnel, a way to possibly make peace with Father Earth. It won’t be easy and you need to decide if all the sacrifices along the way are worth it.

Was it good?

I’m not sure I have the right words to tell you how brilliant this trilogy is. It was a real pleasure to read. I especially love the second person story telling, “you did this/felt that” and the reason for it is finally explained. I actually can’t believe it took me that long to figure out why the story was told this way.

Honestly, this story deserves a read from anyone with a slight interest in earth magic, earth being alive, fantasy, post-apocalyptic, found family versus blood family versus forced situation family.

Seriously, stop reading this and go pick up these books!
