Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request. But if Essun does what he asks, it would seal the fate of the Stillness forever.

Geen tijd om recensies te schrijven. Dringend aan deel drie beginnen. Zegt genoeg. Niet? ( )

The Season sets in. Essun tries to adapt to life not on-the-run in Castrima. She learns surprising facts about the Obelisks and the Stone Eaters. Her daughter Nassun faces her own challenges in the far south.

This is quite a page-turner and follows on directly from the events of The Fifth Season -- so much so that I was a bit confused, since it's been a while since I read the first one in the trilogy. This one also shifts perspectives, but not quite as daringly as the first. Other favourable comparisons with this trilogy are 'Dune' for the complex glossary and the Stone Lore hypographs; Dan Simmons 'Olympos' for the sense of post-posthuman wreckage ('deadcivs') and Octavia Butler for the rage against racism and the merciless workings of the world.

This review is also featured as a guest post on Ity Reads Books: The Obelisk gate

The season sets its jagged teeth into the land. Civilization has become nothing more than a ruin. The comm and the commless band together to survive. Bandits loot and kill, animals once peaceful become hungry beasts and the land dies. Essun continues to work among her new community, trying to keep the peace between orogenes and humans. But a history of hatred and racism lies rooted in their hearts. A guardian awakens and fights against the orders he was forced to condone. And a child learns how quickly love can become twisted and cruel.

The Obelisk Gate continues to follow three separate characters, though two of these perspectives are different from the first book. The balance is not as precise in this second novel. Essun does dominate most of the story. But this didn’t take away from my enjoyment, because the other two characters accented Essun’s discoveries.

The Obelisk Gate enthralls readers with its dark and emotional tones. N. K. Jemisin is a master at world-building. She peels back the layers of history with each chapter propelling readers forward with a thirst for knowledge and understanding. As the pieces begin to fall into place, you’ll find yourself immersed in the broken world that may just yet have a chance at survival. But it will take those subjected to centuries of discrimination and bigotry to rise up and fight. Nothing is ever as it seems, and some of the revelations in this second book will be jaw dropping.

N. K. Jemisin also continues the reveal of who the stone eaters are and how they came to be. While this is a minor subplot to the story, the stone eaters fascinate me. Since book one, Hoa’s been such a presence within the story. When he isn’t by Essun’s side, you can feel the weight of him not being there and how it affects Essun’s character. And the stone eaters are written in a way that doesn’t require much dialogue. Their body language and reactions to certain situations are so artfully written.

I need more of this world. This is by far my favorite fantasy series of 2021. ( )

Fantastic. Not a hint of this being just a sequel. On to the next. ( )

I loved this book so much! I’m glad I decided to continue The Broken Earth trilogy after The Fifth Season. In this book, I got to learn more about Nassun and Jija and what they were doing during Essun’s adventure in the last book. ( )
