City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett comes out May 2nd, and if you’re not reading it by May 3rd I’m going to scowl at you SO HARD.
This book is a kind of James Bond fantasy but with emotionally impactful action and a whole lot of depth. Nothing wrong with pure escapism, of course, but this isn’t it.
You know what? Fine. Just read it for the outstanding action sequences. It works on that level better than pretty much anything else out there.
City of Miracles is the final book in The Divine Cities trilogy, and closes things out very nicely. It departs in tone from the previous two books, but not in a bad way. In fact, the change is very welcome and we get a nice endcap to Shara and Mulagesh’s stories. It’s a better end to the trilogy than we probably deserve. Every book in The Divine Cities series is fantastic and that’s pretty damn impressive.
Plus, I mean, it’s Sigrud. This is a book all about Sigrud, and it’s a book worthy of him.
