Publisher's Summary

The remarkable conclusion to the record-breaking triple Hugo Award-winning fantasy trilogy that began with The Fifth Season.

Winner of the Hugo Award 2018

Winner of the Nebula Award 2018

Winner of the Locus Award for Best Fantasy 2018

An Amazon Best Book of the Year

The incredible conclusion to the record-breaking triple Hugo award-winning trilogy that began with the The Fifth Season.

The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women.

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.

Great trilogy. Awesome story. Voice performance variable

This trilogy was so cool
Voice performance confusing at times and had to repeat some sections to figure out who was talking. Variations in accents from each character.

Story had me hooked!

Good story, sometimes hard to follow

I really enjoyed concluding the story started with The Fifth Season. I especially liked how all the pieces came together in this book.
At times, however, the story was hard to follow, partly because of the language used and the writing style.
I pushed through and continued listening and was glad to have finished it but felt like I really had to concentrate a lot of the time.
Narration was good.

Beautiful and moving series, I highly reccomend!

Beautiful and moving series, so much pain and humanity on display in amazing and horrific scenarios. The world has so much thought and love in it with a very inventive ans capivating way of telling a story. I would highly reccomend!

Worst of a good series.

If you were to judge this book by it's predecessors you would probably walk away like I did a little disappointed and unresolved.
Is it a good book in its' own right? probably.
Did I enjoy the final chapters of this amazing saga? not as much as I'd hoped...

Worthwhile

Not as perfect as the first two but still beautifully written and narrated.. The story did not hold my attention in parts but it was all necessary to deliver the wonderful and heartbreaking conclusion to the series. A terrific writer and wonderful series.
