The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin

My book for October was The Stone Sky by N.K. Jemisin. This is the third book in her Broken Earth trilogy. It won the 2018 Hugo Award for best novel.

I read the second book--The Obelisk Gate--in February. It won the Hugo Award for best novel in 2017. I read the Fifth Season--the first book in the trilogy--last fall. The first book won the Hugo Award for Best Novel in 2016.

The book continues the story of a mother and daughter who are magically talented. They find themselves on opposite sides of an eons long battle over the future of the planet.

As I said when I read the first two books in the trilogy, this is not a genre that I typically read. I read the books because they remarkably won the Hugo award three years in a row. After not enjoying the second book as much as the first, I found this book much more to my liking. I would rate it a strong "B."
