The Obelisk Gate

A sequel! Raised the stakes and broadened the world like a good second book should, got bogged down a bit here and there but I was pretty much all in after the Fifth Season.

Noted on November 9, 2019

Alabaster was never mad; he’s just learned so much that would have driven a lesser soul to gibbering, that sometimes it shows. Letting out some of that accumulated horror by occasionally sounding like a frothing maniac is how he copes. It’s also how he warns you, you know now, that he’s about to destroy some additional measure of your naivete. Nothing is ever as simple as you want it to be.
