Product description


Astonishingly good . . . a deep, powerful novel that's worth reading and rereading (Publishers Weekly, starred review)

One of the smartest second world fantasies out there and has some of the most memorable characters in recent memory (Wes Chu, The Chicago Review of Books)

Magnificent . . . City of Blades does everything a really good sequel should. If anything, it's a better book than its predecessor (

Surpasses its predecessor in almost all aspects . . . loud, bold and uncompromisingly ambitious and I wholeheartedly recommend it even if you haven't read City of Stairs (

Does [City of Blades] live up to the Locus, World Fantasy, British Fantasy and GoodReads Choice Awards-nominated City of Stairs? Allow me to answer with an emphatic yes . . . Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the most talented authors writing in SFF today and this is his finest work to date' (Fantasy-Faction)

Robert Jackson Bennett deserves a huge audience. This is the book that will earn it for him. A story that draws you in, brilliant world building, and oh my God, Sigrud. You guys are going to love Sigrud. (Brent Weeks, New York Times Bestselling Author of The Black Prism on City of Stairs)

Building beautifully upon the richly detailed world introduced in the first book of the series, Bennett serves a stew of fantasy and adventure with a healthy dose of humor and a ladle full of violence (Library Journal, starred review)

Like the very best speculative fiction, City of Blades immerses readers in a made-up world, only to force us to take a harder look at the real one (Booklist)

Richly detailed and expertly plotted. A grand entertainment (Kirkus)

City of Blades is bolder and harder hitting in almost every aspect . . . perfection. This one gets a full five stars and my hearty recommendation (Bibliosanctum)

Book Description

Do the dead sleep soundly in the land of death - or do they have plans of their own? A triumphant return to the world of A City of Stairs.
