Wednesday Words: The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin

 

It is time for Wednesday Words! On the 2nd Wednesday of the month, I share with you all a piece of what I'm reading.


This week I am reading N.K. Jemisin's The Obelisk Gate, the sequel to The Fifth Season. The latter won the Hugo, and this one is nominated for one this year. I'm only 80 pages in and can see why. It's already so good. Visit my thoughts about The Fifth Season in my posts below.

Wednesday Words: A Final Look into The Fifth Season


Long story short, the world is still ending, but let's see what else I can show you and hopefully not spoil anything too major for myself. There are 391 pages of the story (I see why Goodreads says that, even though there are 434. There's an appendix and extras), and Random.org has chosen page 245. Let me brace myself for a spoiler.


"No one touch me," you say softly. "No one speak to me." Without waiting to see if they understand, you plunge into the obelisk.


Not too spoiled, and now I can't wait to see why I (Essun) am doing this again! When Syenite did it in TFS, my soul's jaw dropped.

I am on vacation next week, but I will most likely schedule Tuesday Tales early. I have an idea of what I want to share with you all. Hint: It's the opening to my next book in The Broken Chronicles (series name still pending because of this, The Broken Earth series).

What are you reading this week?
