Review: City of Miracles

31522139 City of Miracles by Robert Jackson Bennett
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

Revenge. It's something Sigrud je Harkvaldsson is very, very good at. Maybe the only thing.

So when he learns that his oldest friend and ally, former Prime Minister Shara Komayd, has been assassinated, he knows exactly what to do and that no mortal force can stop him from meting out the suffering Shara's killers deserve.

Yet as Sigrud pursues his quarry with his customary terrifying efficiency, he begins to fear that this battle is an unwinnable one. Because discovering the truth behind Shara's death will require him to take up arms in a secret, decades-long war, face down an angry young god, and unravel the last mysteries of Bulikov, the city of miracles itself. And perhaps most daunting of all finally face the truth about his own cursed existence.


*I received a copy from Blogging for Books for my honest, unbiased review*

A refreshing urban fantasy/alternate history that is well written and entertaining! Intriguing characters, beautiful world-building, and fast paced action, knitted together by strong writing! I only with that I hadn't started at the end, but I guess I'll have to read this again when I get to it, because it's one of those that I won't get over anytime soon! I really enjoyed this conclusion, and can't wait to read the other two books in this trilogy! The cover is interesting, and the blurb is what drew me in. The story lived up to my expectations, and often surpassed them!
