Review ê The Obelisk Gate õ PDF, eBook or Kindle ePUB ✓ The second novel in a new fantasy trilogy by Hugo Nebula World Fantasy Award nominated author NK JemisinTHIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS FOR THE LAST TIME The season of endings grows darker as civilization fades into the long cold night Alabaster Tenring madman wS with the obelisks and an ancient mystery converging on answers at lastThe Stillness is the wall which stands against the flow of tradition the spark of hope long buried under the thickening ashfall And it will not be broke. “The way of the world isn’t the strong devouring the weak but the weak deceiving and poisoning and whispering in the ears of the strong until they become weak too” So that was good That was really really goodI think I talked about what makes this series special thematically a lot in my review for The Fifth Season But I genuinely think the core of this series the thing that makes it so impactful is how it talks about oppression I was really looking at orogeny in book one as a metaphor for racism which it is but I think it also functions as a metaphor for homophobia There are several scenes here with Nassun Gija that are basically word for word homophobia “It's not hate that you're seeing Hate reuires emotion What this woman has simply done is realize that you are a rogga and decide that you aren't a person just like that” In this book we get povs from three characters; Essun Nassun and Schaffa ➽Essun Listen Essun is my wife I love how mentally strong she is I love her drily sarcastic inner monologue I love that she’s written in second person and it somehow works for me Oh and I love that we know who the first person narrator of this part of her story is➽Nassun Essun’s daughter who we didn’t get much of in book one but who I absolutely love Her character development is so great; I love how she’s forced to learn to be manipulative to play the emotions of her father and so many others➽Schaffa a villain from the first book who is weirdly sympathetic here I actually think there’s a lot of talent in creating a villain here who is still the villain decidedly not an antihero but gains some of your sympathy God I like despised this character in book one and now I’m out here being kind of emo but still hating him and it’s really great One thing that really shocked me here is how invested I got in like every side character I sort of jokingly described this book on my twitter as Essun And Her Gay Friends Try To Survive The Apocalypse They Caused and I was kidding but also am I wrong There’s Tonkee a trans lesbian icon and one of the funniest and most endearing characters in this book There’s Hoa who is probably not even human and I kind of love him He’s so sweet There’s Alabaster who I’ve talked about a lot and I love to cry Ykka a literal icon Antimony who I can’t decide how to feel about So many Something I really like about this is that the worldbuilding is super well thought out like it holds up to really intricate analysis but still not boring or convoluted I think sometimes authors can be too fascinated by their own magic systems and not fascinated enough by the characters and plot but guys I don’t care about magic systems and I was still not bored by a single moment of this book NK Jemisin is talented at building a compelling world the only flaw is perhaps the cringeworthily bare map but focuses on the compelling parts of the narrative The problem I really had with this book was that it really feels like a middle book And this is really concerning because as the #1 middle book defender It is my belief that a meh middle book will usually lead to a terrible final book This is true for every goddamn example of a bad middle book that you will come up with Divergent The Fifth Wave The Maze Runner If it doesn’t follow this pattern it’s probably because the middle book didn’t suck So basically FeargifBut you know I'm 75% through The Stone Sky and I figured I might as well post this Wish me luckBlog | Goodreads | Twitter | Youtube

The Obelisk GateThe second novel in a new fantasy trilogy by Hugo Nebula World Fantasy Award nominated author NK JemisinTHIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS FOR THE LAST TIME The season of endings grows darker as civilization fades into the long. So I listened to this the first time on audio instead of reading my paperback As most of you know I only like doing re reads on audio because I miss too much on first time reads but it's all good Once again even though I didn't understand all that was going on same thing happened when I read the first book by paperback some of the time I still loved it I'm so weird that way 😳Nassun is off with her horrible father and some peeps and her mother Essun is off doing her thing These books are so bizarre to me but still so good So and so wants to set the Earth straight by getting the moon back It was flung out yonder somewhere when something happened There is some kind of rift and other cray stuff I thought they wanted Essun to grab the moon on the way back around but then Nassun was talking about doing it at the end They really shouldn't have named them so close because I kept getting confused at who was who for a minute Anyway they have to snag the moon and you know what Just read the books 😄 I love them so far The last one is out in August and we shall see what will become of this world and the people I hope it something good
