Recommendation: Must Read
The Stone Sky, the final book in the The Broken Earth trilogy is a satisfying conclusion to the series, but not a feel good one. The underlying feeling of despair and fatalism remains.

We are such stuff as dreams are made on; and our little life is rounded with a sleep.
The events of the last few weeks have been trying to most of us with a conscience. Everywhere I look online is discord. People are fighting every where–Twitter, Facebook, the streets, the Capitol. The US is in a state of a disarray that’s been decades in the making. We won’t come through unscathed. We are a divide nation, at war with itself more than anything else.
