To summarize, it seems even the best authors can fall victim to Middle Book Syndrome.

I still adore N.K. Jemisin, I still think she’s a goddess. The Obelisk Gate just didn’t do it for me. The first book in this series, The Fifth Season, was just so exciting. It was filled with incredible world-building and a well-paced journey with a complex and likable heroine.

Review: Dark Matter by Blake Crouch

The one we chose, moment to moment. It makes sense if you think about it. We couldn’t possibly contend with simultaneously observing all possible realities at once.
So how do we access the 5-D probability space?
And if we could, where would it take us?”
