City of Blades

City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett digital book - Fable

Publisher Description

A triumphant return to the world of City of Stairs.
 
A generation ago, the city of Voortyashtan was the stronghold of the god of war and death, the birthplace of fearsome supernatural sentinels who killed and subjugated millions. 
 
Now, the city’s god is dead. The city itself lies in ruins. And to its new military occupiers, the once-powerful capital is a wasteland of sectarian violence and bloody uprisings.
 
So it makes perfect sense that General Turyin Mulaghesh— foul-mouthed hero of the battle of Bulikov, rumored war criminal, ally of an embattled Prime Minister—has been exiled there to count down the days until she can draw her pension and be forgotten.  
 
At least, it makes the perfect cover story. 
 
The truth is that the general has been pressed into service one last time, dispatched to investigate a discovery with the potential to change the world--or destroy it. 
 
The trouble is that this old soldier isn't sure she's still got what it takes to be the hero.

Thumbs Up“As we switched to a different POV from the first book in th installation, Mulagesh offer a fresh air as the main character. The worldbuilding and the imagery of divinity are remarkable, but I found the antagonist as forgettable and I couldn't find myself to care about the new characters introduced.”

“City of blades by Robert Jackson Bennett 4⭐ Book 2 in this series and I wasn't quite as impressed with it as the first one. It was still a high ranking read for me. Read this if you like military, strategic based books. The first was the element of a coup and spy work while this second book brought us a military investigation. I enjoy fantasy or sci Fi that explore colonialism. This series fits the bill perfectly. And he doesn't mind killing off beloved people. This book explores military PTSD so be aware. The character development of the overarching story lines was intriguing. However, element of murder mystery should have more red herrings. It was waay too obvious even if it isn't the main point. Looking forward to City of Miracles!”
