In the Nebula-nominated Metropolitan, Aiah and Constantine won the war for their world-city, Caraqui, by overthrowing the corrupt Keremaths. Their ace-in-the-hole was an unlimited supply of plasm, the geomantic substance that gives the world its power. Now Constantine has paired Aiah with their dangerous "ally," the hanged man Taikoen who lives in the plasm. For Constantine needs help to defeat the Silver Hand and protect his New Regime, no matter how much it will cost Aiah. In the process Aiah may finally reach beyond the Shield, an impenetrable barrier created by the Ascended Ones that seals Caraqui from the stars.

From the Publisher:

A bold, imaginative sequel to the Nebula Award-nominee, Metropolitan

Constantine has achieved all of his dreams-power, wealth, and control over a segment of the vast world-city that covers the globe. Aiah, his disciple and sometimes lover, continues to support the man she helped bring to power. But what she discovers is a man who cannot help himself, a man who needs her more than ever, even as she wonders if he is worth helping, yet again.

A fascinating journey into another world whose people are fed by a "plasm" that is created by high-rises of brick, stone, and steel, City on Fire reveals the trials of rebuilding a society torn from within by the contrary impulses of ambition and fate.
