The Obelisk Gate

The Obelisk Gate - N.K. Jemisin I thought The Fifth Season was a masterclass in world-building, but N K Jemisin picks up her world by its ears and just keeps going in this excellent sequel. I am utterly entranced by the details here (honestly, world-building is catnip for me), and here it is more than matched by excellent character work and social context.

Easily one of the best fantasies I've ever read, both for its creative scope and its emotional depth. I can't wait to read The Stone Sky.
