City Of Sta irs

SFX - - Rated / Books -

Re­lease Date: 2 April Au­thor: Robert Jack­son Bennett Pub­lisher: Jo Fletcher Books This swords- and- sorcery novel is set a cou­ple of gen­er­a­tions af­ter an en­slaved peo­ple over­threw their masters’ gods. Un­for­tu­nately that caused a desta­bil­i­sa­tion of re­al­ity in which land­scapes have been rewrit­ten; the tit­u­lar city is full of half- build­ings and stair­cases that lead nowhere. We said: “The book’s me­chan­ics don’t al­ways keep pace with its imag­i­na­tion but this is an ab­sorb­ing and ma­ture work.”
