Noch ist es Essun nicht gelungen, ihr letztes lebendes Kind zu finden – und den Mann, den sie einst geliebt hat, bevor er zum Mörder ihres Sohnes und Entführer ihrer Tochter wurde. Stattdessen wurde Essun gefunden: von ihrem ehemaligen Mentor, Alabaster Tenring, dem Zerstörer der Welt. Und er hat eine Bitte, die nur sie erfüllen kann. Doch wenn Essun tut, wonach der Mächtige verlangt, könnte dies das Schicksal der Menschheit endgültig besiegeln.

A cool page turner (but I'm getting slightly tired of it)

Still binge reading this series. Read this one in two sittings... I like the characters, I like the psychology, I like way trauma is described, the way parenting is a topic, including bad parenting and abuse and their effects, etc. all this being said I'm growing kind of tired : the main impetus in the first volume, to me at least, was to understand. In this second volume it very much has to do with the main charater becoming more and more incredibly super powerfull. Very much specisesist is my main criticism I guess. In one page the author goes on about how communities go mad if they lack meat vs beans. (Granted B12). And precisely it could have been a way of imagining how to do without accessible B12 or imagine something of the sort. But then again this is a minor point : this is a good book.
