Product Details


“Astonishingly good… a deep, powerful novel that’s worth reading and rereading.”—Publishers Weekly (starred)
“Building beautifully upon the richly detailed world introduced in the first book of the series, Bennett serves a stew of fantasy and adventure with a healthy dose of humor and a ladle full of violence.”–Library Journal (starred) 

“Richly detailed and expertly plotted. A grand entertainment.”—Kirkus
“Like the very best speculative fiction, City of Blades immerses readers in a made-up world, only to force us to take a harder look at the real one.”–Booklist

Praise for City of Stairs:

“Readers seeking a truly refreshing fantasy milieu should travel to Bulikov, and welcome its conquest.”–New York Times Book Review
“A delightful urban fantasy that travels through a city full of Escher-like staircases and alternate realities.” —Washington Post
“[An] incredible journey through a wondrously weird and surprising world… Awesome.” –
“Bennett has built a great world, original and unique, with a scent and a texture, a sense of deep, bloody history, and a naturally blended magic living in the stones.” –
