Review: The Obelisk Gate, by N.K. Jemisin

The Obelisk Gate (The Broken Earth, #2)The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

The second novel in N.K. Jemisin’s The Broken Earth series, The Obelisk Gate expands upon the broken society, world, and characters of her unique and stunningly realized creation. The concepts she deals with by way of unique species and abilities, and the hardships they endure because of those extraordinary characteristics, expand in this second novel, with expertly crafted details which flow seamlessly through a tense plot and brilliant writing.

I am certain Jemisin’s trilogy, and Jemisin herself, will be read and catalogued beside greats like Le Guin, Atwood and Clarke.
