The Moon will soon return. Whether this heralds the destruction of humankind or something worse will depend on two women.
Essun has inherited the power of Alabaster Tenring. With it, she hopes to find her daughter Nassun and forge a world in which every orogene 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.

  • Bravo!

    By SDWill
    A truly profound finale to the series: BRAVO! Ms. Jemisin is one of my new favorite authors.
  • Great conclusion

    By Bmcclosk
    This final book brings this amazing trilogy to a close. Just as exciting as the first two books.
  • Satisfying conclusion to a unique series

    By MFago
    If you have read the first two then buy this book. Perhaps not quite at the level of the first book, but sequels always loose the shine of a new unique world.
  • A beautiful ending to a beautiful story

    By Anisha Chawla
    I finished this book in one day. Jemisen brings everything back in the final chapter of this trilogy. All questions are answered and you're left with a feeling of utter satisfaction.
