Críticas:

"Robert Jackson Bennett deserves a huge audience. This is the book that will earn it for him. A story that draws you in, brilliant world building, and oh my God, Sigrud. You guys are going to love Sigrud."
--Brent Weeks, "New York Times" bestselling author of "The Way of Shadows
"
A rich, layered, thoughtful story, full of gods and magic and characters that feel unflinchingly "true"...every once in a while I read a book that's so well done, I find myself wanting to punch the author in the face out of pure envy. Congratulations, Mr. Bennett - you just made the face-punching list!
--Jim C. Hines, Hugo Award winning author of "Libriomancer"

"Alien and human at the same time, Bennett's world is engrossing and fascinating. The pacing kept me reading far later than was healthy."
--Mur Lafferty, Campbell Award winning author of "Playing for Keeps
"

"Suddenly, the pages are whipping by, 50 at a clip as mysteries are uncovered, miracles happen and assassins begin scaling the walls. ... Bennett is plainly a writer in love with the world he has built -- and with good cause. It's 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."

Reseña del editor:

You've got to be careful when you're chasing a murderer through Bulikov, for the world is not as it should be in that city. When the gods were destroyed and all worship of them banned by the Polis, reality folded; now stairs lead to nowhere, alleyways have become portals to the past, and criminals disappear into thin air. The murder of Dr Efrem Pangyui, the Polis diplomat researching the Continent's past, has begun something and now whispers of an uprising flutter out from invisible corners. Only one woman may be willing to pursue the truth - but it is likely to cost her everything.

Descripción BROADWAY BOOKS, United States, 2014. Paperback. Estado de conservación: New. 198 x 132 mm. Language: English . Brand New Book. An atmospheric and intrigue-filled novel of dead gods, buried histories, and a mysterious, protean city--from one of America s most acclaimed young SF writers. The city of Bulikov once wielded the powers of the gods to conquer the world, enslaving and brutalizing millions--until its divine protectors were killed. Now Bulikov has become just another colonial outpost of the world s new geopolitical power, but the surreal landscape of the city itself--first shaped, now shattered, by the thousands of miracles its guardians once worked upon it--stands as a constant, haunting reminder of its former supremacy. Into this broken city steps Shara Thivani. Officially, the unassuming young woman is just another junior diplomat sent by Bulikov s oppressors. Unofficially, she is one of her country s most accomplished spies, dispatched to catch a murderer. But as Shara pursues the killer, she starts to suspect that the beings who ruled this terrible place may not be as dead as they seem--and that Bulikov s cruel reign may not yet be over.
