Again, N.K. Jemisin has surprised me and surpassed my expectations in this continued urban fantasy of the Great City series. Her take on multiverse theory is like nothing I’ve ever read before. A bit complex and mathematical in some aspects, I followed along smoothly throughout the entire story, became attached to certain characters, and even felt sorry for the antagonists. Best of all, Jemisin has a certain way of describing each multiverse and each character in great depth without rambling on for pages. I found it very easy to envision every scene and conflict with clarity. I especially appreciated the nod and reference to Schrödinger’s Cat theory. I recommend this book to anyone who loves urban fantasy, set in current times, complete with current references to our recent political climate by using a “tongue-in-cheek” method of deliverance.
