COMMUNITY REVIEWS

Rock Solid Conclusion submitted by brielle on July 11, 2018, 7:24pm This was a satisfying conclusion to an excellent trilogy. While not as engrossing as the first novel, I really enjoyed the multiple perspectives and appreciated how loose ends were tied up.

Glad I read it... compelling story submitted by sueij on July 27, 2019, 5:03pm 3/5 stars. Meh. I'm glad I read the conclusion of the trilogy, but I enjoyed each book less than the first. In the end, I think for this series it's that Jemisin excelled at the world-building and relationship-building that encompassed the whole of the first book, and once these were set, the story itself didn't have as much to offer (which is weird, because obviously the story is compelling). I think I just found the first book a more compelling story-telling than the second or the third, despite my interest in what would happen. I'm still glad I read the whole thing.

Excellent second book submitted by Princess Cimorene on July 21, 2020, 12:49am This whole series is so unique. Each book lingered in my mind for a long time. I like that how this book deepened the story from the first book, and raised more and more questions, revealed more about how the world works, and got me continually more invested in what happened to the characters.
