City of Miracles

I have been a fan of this author and series since the first book, City of Stairs.  I enjoy how each book can be a stand alone novel, but they all tie together. I also have enjoyed the characters and the entire concept of old almost forgotten gods coming back. I find it reminiscent of the “American Gods” book by Neil Gaiman (now a television series).  So very timely, regardless of what the author intended.

Despite the book being in a similar vein, they are very different. I think in terms of the series, the first book is the strongest and this novel is second. The second book in the series was a little weaker and more confusing. However, on to this book.

This novel is about the tale of revenge and discovery of Sigrud. He is on a mission to avenge the death of his friend, only the mission will take him further than he thought possible and require him to question everything he thought he knew.  I really enjoyed it and can’t wait to see more from this author.

 

I received this book from Blogging for Books for this review.
