Review: The Stone Sky

The Stone Sky (The Broken Earth) - N.K. Jemisin

The concluding volume in a trilogy whose first 2 entries both won a Hugo, this will be on my ballot next year. This series is great. This conclusion is brilliant and has pay off for so many world building hooks I'm surprised it isn't 1000 pages long. 

 

My favorite minor reveal is the origin of Safe, a drink mentioned only a few times that has endlessly practical applications in a world periodically ravaged by apocalypses. 

 

Jemisin is brilliant and I look forward to seeing what she does next.
