When I picked up The Fifth Season I didn’t realize it was the first in a trilogy, so I was shocked and delighted when I got to the cliff-hanger on the last page. Jemisin introduced a gloriously imagined, complex world in which some are born with the power to shape the earth but have no power over their own lives. Amidst the upheaval that produces a massive earthquake and threatens the existence of the world, exist a slate of characters that are solidly compelling and deeply nuanced. In The Obelisk Gate Jemisin delivered an incredible sequel, showing us the forces warring beneath the surface, and I cannot wait for the conclusion.
