After leaving reviews on Goodreads for some time, I have decided to do a monthly round-up on this blog. So here’s me trying to keep up with my reading goals, life in the way and all.
City of Stairs (by Robert Jackson Bennett, 2014)
“The Divine may have created many hells, but I think they pale beside what men create for themselves.”
Old Gods return to the ravaged lands of Man in the epic fantasy, City of Stairs. Robert Jackson Bennett presents a rich introduction to a divine universe, built on the charm of ancient magic and thrill of conspiracies. Exposition works to its full advantage. Readers are able to immerse entirely in the fascinating knowledge of its rules, politics, and theology.
