Three terrible things happen in a single day. Essun, masquerading as an ordinary schoolteacher in a quiet small town, comes home to find that her husband has brutally murdered their son and kidnapped their daughter. Mighty Sanze, the empire whose innovations have been civilization's bedrock for a thousand years, collapses as its greatest city is destroyed by a madman's vengeance. And worst of all, across the heartland of the world's sole continent, a great red rift has been torn which spews ash enough to darken the sky for years. Or centuries. But this is the Stillness, a land long familiar with struggle, and where orogenes -- those who wield the power of the earth as a weapon -- are feared far more than the long cold night. Essun has remembered herself, and she will have her daughter back. She does not care if the world falls apart around her. Essun will break it herself, if she must, to save her daughter.… (més)

It took a little bit for me to get into the narrative and it's certainly not my typical go to, but I enjoyed the storylines and world building. ( )

5/5

I went into this book with reasonable expectations. I had heard a lot of good things about it, a lot of people praising it as some of the best fantasy books they've read in a long time, but those were also references I got about books I hated, so it was good to keep some reservation about it. I ended up loving this book.

The writing in second person for a long part of the book kinda irked me, I'm really not sure it was necessary at all, honestly. Maybe it's better explained in the sequels? But nonetheless, I enjoyed even those parts just fine, specially because the main character was very interesting to me. The other parts were even better, I kinda loved Alabaster for the small and sorta angry incredibly powerful monster that he is.

I figured out pretty quickly that Dama and Scienite were the same person, way before the actual "reveal", honestly, I'm not even sure if it was supposed to be a plot twist at that point. After that it was a quick conclusion to see that Essun was also the same person, all pretty easy. I found it pretty odd that she finished the book with no idea about her daughter, but I guess it will all be solved in the next books as well.

As I mentioned, I really liked Alabaster and the way he viewed the world. Where Scienite found him annoying, I found him extremely fun and delightful. I honestly never even managed to guess that he was the man that jumpstarted the whole apocalypse thing. It's a shame he'll probably die even before the next book starts, but it doesn't take away my excitment for the story


A truly amazing book, even if I can't explain it properly. I would recommend it to anyone that enjoys fantasy and I will probably devour the next entries. ( )

This is the way it happens. You tried once, a few years ago, to read a book by N.K. Jemisin. It didn't go well. But you decide to try again. Why not, am I right?

You try. It's rusting hard. You wonder whether you will ever understand what is happening. Eventually you get into the pace of the book and start to figure out what it means for these characters to live in this world. But then -

Oh.

Oh rust.

You realize this book just isn't that good. You can't stand the style, sadly. You find elements of the concept fascinating, but there are so many things that don't make sense.

You draw all your powers together to avoid icing this thing and you exert enough control to finish it. And then, you look on wikipedia to find out what happens in the next two books so you don't have to read them. This is the way it ends. ( )

This is the first book of an epic fantasy trilogy that has won a lot of awards, and I can see why. It's very good. Quite well-written, with an interesting setting and premise... Just high quality throughout.

Do not read it when you need cheering up, though. The post-apocalyptic setting is bleak and hopeless, torture and murder are commonplace, often including children as victims. The characters are correspondingly bleak and hopeless... Highly recommended, in spite of that. ( )

I didn’t love this book, but I also didn’t stop reading it. A lot of people have said that they didn’t empathize with the characters, and I totally get it. They were almost entirely unpleasant. But the premise is great, and so was the story. ( )

Dit is wat je moet onthouden: het einde van het ene verhaal
is alleen maar het begin van het volgende.
Dit is immers al eerder gebeurd. Mensen gaan door.
Oude ordes vergaan. Nieuwe samenlevingen worden geboren.
Als we zeggen dat 'de wereld is vergaan', is dat meestal een leugen, want de planeet maakt het prima.
Maar zo vergaat de wereld
Zo vergaat de wereld.
Zo vergaat de wereld.
Voor de laatste keer.
