The central theme is the relationship between Essun and her daughter who are so different from each other and who want different things which will ultimately make them opponents. Jemisin set aside all the conventions of typical fantasy and created something truly unique here.
The world is described in such detail that at times you feel lost while reading. There are a lot of information about the past peppered throughout which give you hints without revealing anything. These are not easy to read but they are worth reading. You have to accept the fact that you might need to reread passages or you can just keep on reading as pieces of the puzzle will fall into place eventually.
I might reread these as I feel I have missed some details, and as with every piece of great art, if you want to understand it in full, you need to go back to it multiple times. And going back to this world and its characters is worth it. The concluding novel to one of the most unique fantasy series I have ever read! One of the best, most unique fantasy series I ever read!
