Ian Sudderth reviewed The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin Aug 16 Public 4 stars The season of endings grows darker as civilization fades into the long cold night. Alabaster … So good. 5 stars To quote a friend “the amount of escalation in this series is breathtaking”. I couldn’t agree more. The layers of metaphor mix with action and intrigue and the world building immense. Loved it.
