Best Fantasy Book for September 2016

How does one properly follow-up a Hugo Award award winning book?

Title: The Obelisk Gate

The Obelisk Gate Cover - LargeAuthor: 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… 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!

From the Publisher: This is the way the world ends, for the last time.

 The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night.
 Essun — once Damaya, once Syenite, now avenger — has found shelter, but not her daughter. 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.

Far away, her daughter Nassun is growing in power – and her choices will break the world.
