A masterpiece of writing that I will reread for years . . . The book is simply beautiful . . . It is a book that broke my heart, then pieced it back together stronger than it was before, and it is one of the best books I have ever read. (The Quill to Live, 'The Best of 2017' 2017-11-30)
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)
As fitting a farewell to The Divine Cities as any I can imagine (Tor.com 2017-05-05)
A stunning and heartbreaking tale of sacrifice amid magic and spycraft . . . The bittersweet ending, which elegantly and definitively caps off the novel and the trilogy, will have readers reaching for the tissues (Publishers Weekly, starred review)
As a whole The Divine Cities is simply that, Divine. (SFFWorld 2017-05-02)
Dark and violent but a tale well spun and with a most satisfying conclusion. Just stay out of the way of the flying fickle Finger of Kolkan... (Kirkus)
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 on City of Blades)
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)
City of Miracles is perfect from start to finish and will be one of the best books to come out in recent memory . . . The Divine Cities is the first series I have ever read to get perfect tens straight through, with no areas that I think could have been improved. If you haven't picked up these books yet, I implore you to correct that mistake (Quill to Live)
The awesome climax to the fantasy thrillers City of Stairs and City of Blades: Sigrud je Harkvaldsson is back, and this time he's out for vengeance.See all Product description

This is a fast paced, moving, unpredictable, well-plotted, final volume of the Divine Cities trilogy and immensely satisfying. Although the publishers claim that each book of the trilogy can be read as a stand alone volume and the author carefully resolves all the questions that he has raised in each book and sets them in a discrete age, I disagree.
I think that knowing the history of the place and characters adds to the enjoyment and tension of reading each book and the fascination of seeing the society and technology develop in this brilliantly realised world. So not only do I unhesitatingly recommend reading this book but also ,if you haven't come across this trilogy, believe that you should buy all three, start at the beginning and give yourself a real treat.
Wished I could have savoured it a lot more and and am sad that this story is finished, but look forward to more from a guy who knows how to tell a story.
Incidentally, it’s very telling of the world building and great story telling he’s done that, within a chapter or two of picking up the new book, all previous events come instantly back to mind. Like visiting old friends.
City of Miracles (and the trilogy as a whole) stands out for its great world-building and believable characters who you actually care about. The writer (Robert Bennett) also has a great ear for dialogue, and captures perfectly the exasperation between, say, General Mulgaresh and Sigrud, or the angst of Shara's daughter Taty as she experiences loss for the first time. If you don't cry at Sigrud's ending then you have no heart ~
One of the best fantasy series I have read in a long time, strongly recommended!
Cannot recommend this trilogy highly enough.
