    Description

    Winner of the 2017 Hugo Award for Best Novel.

    Book two in the record-breaking triple Hugo Award-winning trilogy.

    The season of endings grows darker, as civilisation 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.

    The Broken Earth trilogy begins with The Fifth Season, continues in The Obelisk Gate and concludes with The Stone Sky - out now.

    Disappointed

    I really like the first book (The fifth Season) it felt fresh in it's setting and the caracterisation was great. the prose was also really good and second tense narrator was original.
    But unfortunately, The obelisk Gate kinda indoes all that. Without going into spoilers : The main caracter Essun change drastically and it could have been well done but is never really adressed. The story becomes a drag in the middle and there arent enough fascinating reveals to carry the story. Too many sloppy info dumps and a pretty underwhelming ending.
    A real shame, I really loved the first book and now am not even sure about reading the third one...

    The narrator Robin Miles is still top notch, nice voice and good intonations/accents.

    Slow but hard-hitting

    I love this series! It's one of the great modern sci-fi books, in my opinion. It's not about action but the development of characters in a dystopian world. Very strong female characters.

    it just gets better

    I loved the book. I am rather new to audible and I struggle to focus when listening to a book. The narrator, as well as the contents of the book of course, made it very easy to focus.

    The second book is as good as the first!

    The story keeps evolving and expanding without losing focus. A rare trilogy where the second book is at least as good as the first.

    Even better than the first one

    If you read The fifth season, you already know.
    If not, stay assured, it is still great.

    I've consumed this one so fast it feel shorter. A lot happens and the plot thickens. You must remember what happened in the first book because this is a direct continuation, so be prepared.

    All I said about the first one is still true. But I have to emphasize, the narrator work is even more flawless that last time. She does an amazing job voicing every character and in one moment in particular goes beyond simply voicing and gives the audiobook a very special thing that the book never could acomplished alone. Kudos to her, brilliant performance.

    Now if you excuse me, I'm going to start the third one.

    Best Books I've Read in Years

    This entire trilogy was such a joy to read, even if it was quite dark in theme. Was so refreshing to have a true adult, fantasy/scfi storyline that didn't shy away from heavier topics. I was completely emersed until the very end. Best books I've picked up in many years

    Brilliant Conclusion

    Brilliant conclusion to the series that once again does not just continue the story, but expands it and builds something else on top of the foundation.

    incredible story

    a great extension on the original story
    almost all players are revealed and as always a great cliffhanger

    Beautiful storytelling, fantastic reading voice

    Still one of the best fantasy triologoies I have ever read. Well-written, three-dimensional and diverse characters in a carefully constructed world. The intricate plot from the first novel continues, though easier to follow.

    Great choice of reading voice, too!

    Exciting

    If this was a physical book, I would call it a page turner. Fantastic story, great voice acting.

    Robin Miles is just a genius. the story is amazing

    The story is amazing enough but I would give Miles 6 or 7 stars to Miles if possible. Her way of storytelling is just so intriguing

    Excellent

    The story continues and is obviously planned from the start to span more than one book. Not the kind of "extruded phantasy" one often encounters which just build on a past success trying to squeeze out some more. Solid storytelling instead with a good mixture of mystery and explorative success to the reader/listener.
    Robin Miles is easily the best storyteller I encountered so far.
    A delight.

    Worthy Sequel

    Let's keep this review short: have you read / listened to the first book? This is the direct continuation of the story and you want to listen to it. Story, worldbuilding and performance are still as good as in the firsr one.
    If you don't know the first book - don't buy this one, I fear you'll not understand much.

    Wenig Handlung, viele Längen. Ansonsten gute Ideen

    Interessante Ideen, gute Sprecherin. War allerdings froh als ich durch war. Die Geschichte hat einige Längen und wird langatmig. Das dritte Buch habe ich auch, weiß aber nicht ob ich es lesen werde
