city of stairs by robert jackson bennett

Sword & Laser pick from June.

After a group of gods were destroyed, the city of Bulikov has gone back to some kind of a dark age. The new diplomat, Shara Divani, is sent to the city to investigate the murder of a historian. She soon learns the gods might still be around causing havoc.

I enjoyed this book. I liked the world created and the fact that Shara was a strong female character. There was a lot of humor and action and Sigrud was like Hodor but with a brain that works. Very well-written and I’m glad to hear that a sequel will be coming out because I want more of Shara!
