Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Best Book of the Year, 2017

The incredible conclusion to the trilogy that began with the Hugo Award-winning The Fifth Season

  • Shortlisted for the Hugo, Nebula, Kitschies, Audie and Locus Awards
  • A New York Times Notable Book
  • The inaugural Wired.com book club pick

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 Series!"

    Listened to nine hours of this book over two days. Fascinated about how it was going to end! Really enjoyed the series! Found this book slightly slower than the first two.

    "Fabulous story, fabulous narration"

    I just listened to all three books of the trilogy back-to-back and it was a wonderful time. I’m sad it’s over.

    "Very good and not what I expected"

    I think this is the best written of the trilogy. I wasn't expecting much from the plot when I started listening but there's lots of interesting plot going on. The writing is a little slow and the narration, whilst excellent, is also a little slow but other than that I really enjoyed the book.

    "a good ending"

    I think the second was the strongest in the trilogy, but this is still intriguing. Not as fully satisfying a conclusion as I would have liked, but still a powerful tale.

    A bit confusing at times as the change in character's "voice", which is easily visible on the page, is not formally signalled to the listener.
