The Stone Sky


A fitting conclusion to the trilogy. The story started brutally, and ended the same - keeping the emotions high until the end. All the storylines got resolved, all the misteries from the previous books were addressed, and Father Earth got his daughter back.

The final reunion / confrontation between the mother and daughter is one of the best parts of the book, and the story of Schaffa, even told by bits and pieces, was very emotionally charged.

While, IMHO, the second part of the trilogy suffered a bit from the middle-volume effect, the conclusion is worthy of all the praise.
