I'm currently behind on reviews, so don't be surprised if the recent reviews are a bit sparse.

City of Stairs

Cover of City of Stairs.

Extremely strong, vivid story. I’m left with a lot of impressions โ€“ because the worldbuilding was good, because the characters were strong, because the story was better than decent. A couple of minor points like a predictable staple plot twist or sudden relationship building dialogues while in a dangerous situation didn’t detract from my enjoyment. The first book in a long time that led to me just devouring it.
