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."
