Summary

Final novel in the chilling and epic new fantasy series from the best-selling and critically acclaimed author of Prince of Thorns and Red Sister.  

The green world overwhelms all of Yaz’s expectations. Everything seems different, but some things remain the same: her old enemies are still bent on her destruction. 

The Corridor abounds with plenty and unsuspected danger. To stand a chance against the eyeless priest, Eular, and the god-like city-mind, Seus, Yaz will need to learn fast and make new friends.

The Convent of Sweet Mercy, like the Corridor itself, is packed with peril and opportunity. Yaz needs the nuns’ help—but first they want to execute her.

The fate of everyone squeezed between the Corridor’s vast walls, and ultimately the fate of those labouring to survive out on ice itself, hangs from the moon, and the battle to save the moon centres on the Ark of the Missing, buried beneath the emperor’s palace. Everyone wants Yaz to be the key that will open the Ark—the one the wise have sought for generations. But sometimes wanting isn’t enough.

The Girl and the Moon is the third and final volume in the Book of Ice trilogy.

Critic reviews

"Mark Lawrence gets better with every book. It has a drive to it, a pulse, a gearshift that kicks higher and higher." (Fantasy Book Review)

"Dark, passionate, tense, with a female hero anyone could relate to—I was utterly fascinated! This is no pretty, flowery tale, but one of vastly different people struggling to survive when a hostile government comes to power." (New York Times best-selling author Tamora Pierce)

"If you like dark, you will love Mark Lawrence. And when the light breaks through and it all makes sense, the contrast is gorgeous." (New York Times best-selling author Robin Hobb)

Ho hum

There’s an interesting story to be told in this world, it’s origins, history and connection to our own, but this isn’t it. To think I was disappointed at the end of the last trilogy, this one is just people running around on the ice, the entire trilogy barely advances anything we know.

the last one done

the story has so much to do in concluding a six part tale. it does it, but to some extent at the expense of the telling. don't get me wrong it's good. for me, the world of Abeth is somewhere that will always be with me. I can't thank Mr Lawrence enough. Hellen Duff is as she has been all the way through an excellent performer.

A great ending for the Ancestor

Wow this book not only details the closing of our journey with Yaz and her friends, but also see's many call backs to the time of Nona Grey. Not to spoil to much but those gates lead to more than just places.

Brilliant Brilliant and Better

Few trilogies build the story line as well as these. The world Mark Lawrence created In the “Sisters”trilogy was hard to leave behind. The “Girl” trilogy was far more complex but with such depth of
Characterisation. Superb.
Take a holiday Mr Lawrence, and then return to Abeth.

A good ending

This is how to perfectly end a series of books without getting moppish or drowning the reader in tears

A great finale

Thoroughly enjoyed this final episode. Great narration and great story, interesting how it brings in some aspects of the other series of books that refer to sweet mercy
