THIS IS THE WAY THE WORLD ENDS ... FOR THE LAST TIME. The season of endings grows darker, as civilization fades into the long cold night.

Mientras que no tiene la frenética energía del primer libro, "The Obelisk Gate" es una maravilla. Se revelan secretos, se crean relaciones, se rompen corazones, y la historia de Essun y su familia en su intento por sobrevivir a esta temporada continúa siendo una de las mejores cosas que he leído en 2021.
