New review at Girls in Capes: The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin

Jemisin_ObeliskGate_TPCheck out my review of The Obelisk Gate by N.K. Jemisin at Girls in Capes!

The Obelisk Gate is the second book in N.K. Jemisin’s Broken Earth series, and it was one of my most anticipated books out this summer as well as one of my most anticipated books of 2016. The bar was set pretty high, and when I started reading it, I was a little worried that my expectations would result in disappointment.

They didn’t.

The Obelisk Gate was my second 5-star review in two weeks. Learn more about this amazing book and what precisely I loved so much about it. (Spoiler alert: Jemisin’s writing voice is flawless.)

Read my review of K.B. Wagers’ BEHIND THE THRONE on Girls in Capes

B-T-7-darkerCheck out my review of BEHIND THE THRONE in Girls in Capes!

I also love the way that the book addresses not only who she is as a gunrunner (basically a glorified space pirate), but who she is as the heiress to the empire and as a woman. Her heart is broken over her loved ones who have been killed; she’ll never live up to her mother’s expectations or her sister’s legacy; she worries about fulfilling her duties not just to the throne, but her people.

Behind the Throne is a debut adult science fiction set in the heart of space. 5 out of 5 stars!
