City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett *Review*

*I received a free eCopy of this for my honest review*

Years ago, the city of Bulikov wielded the powers of the Gods to conquer the world. But after its divine protectors were mysteriously killed, the conqueror has become the conquered; the city's proud history has been erased and censored, progress has left it behind, and it is just another colonial outpost of the world's new geopolitical power. Into this musty, backward city steps Shara Divani. Officially, the quiet mousy woman is just another lowly diplomat sent by Bulikov's oppressors. Unofficially, Shara is one of her country's most accomplished spymasters-dispatched to investigate the brutal murder of a seemingly harmless historian. As Shara pursues the mystery through the ever-shifting physical and political geography of the city, she begins to suspect that the beings who once protected Bulikov may not be as dead as they seem-and that her own abilities might be touched by the divine as well.


When I read the description of this I wasn't sure it would be a book I would like but I gave it a shot. I am so glad I did because boy was it good. Well more than good...It was fantastic. Very well written and I have to say I couldn't put it down.

I highly recommend City of Stairs.

I give this 5 out of 5 .

You can purchace this online or in stores near you.
