Book Review: The Obelisk Gate by N K Jemisin (2016).

On the Cover: The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night. Essun has found shelter, but not her missing daughter. Instead there is Alabaster Tenring, destroyer of the world, with a request only Essun can grant. Review: The second book of N K Jemisin series does not disappoint in any way. It delves further along the storyline of Essun and her current life in Castrima (since all characters merged into the present Damaya, Syenite, Essun!).

The novel begins with Trisha, the heroine of the tale being viciously attacked by … Continue reading Book Review: Love’s Prey, by Francesca Quarto (2018).
