[ Books ] The Obelisk Gate by J K Jemisin

The Obelisk Gate (The Broken Earth, #2)The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin

My rating: 5 of 5 stars


I liked this one even more than the first one. Now I'm half-way through the third instalment. Bit grim at times but a very good story and the characters are credible -if a lot of what they do break a lot of laws of physics! and the geological setting is a bit improbable. But it is a very good story, very well told.
