theobeliskgateAs promised, I’ve returned fairly quickly to read the second book in N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth Trilogy: The Obelisk Gate. As sequels go, it was perfect. It takes the narrative in new directions, but also connects back to and addresses some of the lingering questions from the previous book, The Fifth Season. I’m finding myself struggling for things to say about it beyond what I already wrote about for The Fifth Season because I have very similar thoughts on it. I considered skipping this post entirely as redundant, but decided it was worth noting that this  trilogy continues to be excellent, and if you’re a fan of world-building fantasy, this is a series you shouldn’t miss.
