The Mary Sue Exclusive Cover Reveal: N.K. Jemisin’s The Obelisk Gate

Jemisin_ObeliskGate_TP watermarked

Way, way back in 2013, we had an exclusive cover reveal for N.K. Jemisin’s hit novel The Fifth Season. Now, we’ve got a brand new reveal for the next book in Jemisin’s series: The Obelisk Gate.

New York Times called The Fifth Season “intricate and extraordinary,” and our dear founder Susana Polo raved about Jemisin, saying, “I read N.K. Jemisin‘s Inheritance trilogy last year and found myself devouring a high fantasy series that refused to take the Eurocentric, gender normative, heteronormative default setting of high fantasy as granted.”

Definitely check this book out next year, and the first one as well if you haven’t yet jumped on this series.
