Waiting on Wednesday - Vecka 32

Waiting on Wednesday påbörjades hos Breaking the Spine i syfte för att man ska lyfta fram de kommande böcker som man ser fram emot väldigt mycket.

City of Stairs av Robert Jackson Bennett
9:e september 2014

Beskrivning från Goodreads: Years ago, the city of Bulikov wielded the powers of the Gods to conquer the world. But after its divine protectors were mysteriously killed, the conqueror has become the conquered; the city's proud history has been erased and censored, progress has left it behind, and it is just another colonial outpost of the world's new geopolitical power. Into this musty, backward city steps Shara Divani. Officially, the quiet mousy woman is just another lowly diplomat sent by Bulikov's oppressors. Unofficially, Shara is one of her country's most accomplished spymasters - dispatched to investigate the brutal murder of a seemingly harmless historian. As Shara pursues the mystery through the ever-shifting physical and political geography of the city, she begins to suspect that the beings who once protected Bulikov may not be as dead as they seem-and that her own abilities might be touched by the divine as well.

Kommentar: Fantasy, politiska intriger och en mordgåta i en enda bok? September känns över huvudtaget som en månad med många starka releaser och den här boken verkar vara en av dem.
