Hey y’all! Today I wanted to talk about The Broken Earth trilogy. The books being: The Fifth Season, The Obelisk Gate, and The Stone Sky written by N.K. Jemisin. In this post-apocalyptic world there is a fifth season that essentially ends the world. And these seasons can last a long time and each separate community just prepares for it. We follow three characters Essun, Syenite and Damaya as they navigate different places and time periods of the world.
You are thrown right into this world and you gradually learn about it. I, admittedly, was confused for a good portion of the book. As things progressed I slowly started to understand the people and the politics of the world. Jemisin’s writing style is very unique and it takes a minute to get into it. Also, I can totally see how people wouldn’t like it.
The reveals had me shook! There were a couple that I totally didn’t see coming but made sense to the overall story. Plus the ending was downright explosive! I had a few false starts with this book, but once I got started I couldn’t stop.
Sooo…..Will I continue?
Uh yeah! I have to know where this story goes and I need to get to them ASAP. Thank goodness this is a finished series!
