How does one properly follow-up a Hugo Award award winning book?
Title: The Obelisk Gate
Author: N.K. Jemisin
Series: The Broken Earth #2
The Fifth Season (Broken Earth Book #1) set a very high bar for this new series. Does the sequel keep the pace?
Here’s our analogy:
Would you describe a Ferrari as slow? Probably not. What if you compared a Ferrari to a fighter jet? Does the Ferrari seem slow now? Probably so.
The same is true here. While The Obelisk Gate is without question an outstanding book…..it falls a little short when being compared to Book #1.
So the question is this: would you turn down a Ferarri because it was too slow? Of course not, and by the same comparison you should absolutely read The Obelisk Gate!
