Dune Messiah * (Book 2) Frank Herbert

Having recently finished Dune by Frank Herbert, I decided to jump right in and read the second book in the series, following the immediate outcome from Paul of the House Atreides marrying princess Irulan alongside his concubine Chani.

Dune by Frank Herbert

Though Dune won the Nebula and Hugo awards, the two most prestigious science fiction prizes, it was not an overnight commercial success.

Annihilation (Southern Reach #1) by Jeff VanderMeer

I’ve seen the movie first and ’cause I’ve had issue with the structure of it, I postponed reading the book (which I already had!) for nearly a year.

By end of the novel, it becomes clear that all three protagonists are the same person, Essun, at different stages in her life. The Obelisk Gate largely abandons flashbacks, instead carrying the storyContinue reading “The Obelisk Gate by N. K. Jemisin (Hugo Fantasy Award Winner 2017)”
