EPIC GIVEAWAY: Ten Copies of CITY OF BLADES by Robert Jackson Bennett

Today, courtesy of the publisher, we are hosting an awesome giveaway for Robert Jackson Bennett’s City of Blades, sequel to the excellent City of Stairs.


City of Blades jacket

A new novel from Robert Jackson Bennett, set in the same world as his much acclaimed CITY OF STAIRS – finalist for 2015 World Fantasy, Locus and British Fantasy awards.

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.

    Oh, I simply adored City of Stairs. It was the first book I’d read of Robert Jackson Bennett’s, but I knew it wasn’t going to be the last. Really looking forward to City of Blades.

    I’m in the middle of City of Stairs right now. The language requires careful reading, which slows progress, but it’s worth the effort. City of Blades can’t come too soon.

    I read this last month and it was SO enthralling. I can’t wait for City of Blades because let’s be honest, Mulaghesh was one of the best parts of City of Stairs. Thanks for doing this giveaway! Not sure what I’ll do if I have to wait until January to read it!

    I admit it – it’s still sitting on my monumentally high (in a virtual way, mostly) “To Be Read” pile. But it’s on the “Don’t lose track of this, it should be good” pile, as opposed to the “Why did I get this?” pile.

    I loved City of Stairs and was so excited to find out there was a sequel since so much of what was amazing about the first book could be found in the world building.

    CITY OF STAIRS made my Top Ten list last year, and I read a *lot* of books. And Mulaghesh was my favorite character!
