Book Club: The Stone Sky/Broken Earth Conclusion
Greetings True Believers, Before we move on to a totally new book in November, let's wrap up NK Jemisin's incredible Broken Earth trilogy with the final book in the series, the Hugo and Nebula award-winning, The Stone Sky. Reviews -- "The Stone Sky ... establishes [Jemisin] as arguably the most important speculative writer of her generation... It's that good. She's that good."―John Scalzi, Wall Street Journal "Jemisin is now a pillar of speculative fiction, breathtakingly imaginative and narratively bold."―Entertainment Weekly "[N. K. Jemisin] has pretty well conquered [the epic fantasy scene] with the Broken Earth."―The New York Times "Jemisin deliberately refuses to provide easy answers: they're simply not available, in this world or ours. Painful and powerful."―Kirkus (starred review) "Vivid characters, a tautly constructed plot, and outstanding worldbuilding meld into an impressive and timely story of abused, grieving survivors fighting to fix themselves and save the remnants of their shattered home."―Publishers Weekly (starred review) "The depth and breadth of Jemisin's achievement with this trilogy is geologic. These books are a revolution in which I want to take part."―NPR Books "Incredible, wildly original . . . [The Stone Sky is] blowing me away."―The Verge "A real tour de force . . . one of the best fantasy trilogies in recent memory."―RT Book Reviews (five stars) "The powerful conclusion to the "Broken Earth" trilogy will please the author's many fans with its fully developed world, detailed settings, and complex characters."―Library Journal "[N. K. Jemisin's] books have abstracted real-life race issues in a way that serves to magnify the truth."―Washington Post We'll meet at the Brazen Head this time. See you there!
