Description

Max Gladstone returns with The Ruin of Angels, the sixth novel in the Hugo-nominated Craft Sequence, which The Washington Post calls "the best kind of urban fantasy" and NPR calls "sharp, original, and passionate"
The God Wars destroyed the city of Alikand. Now, a century and a half and a great many construction contracts later, Agdel Lex rises in its place. Dead deities litter the surrounding desert, streets shift when people aren't looking, a squidlike tower dominates the skyline, and the foreign Iskari Rectification Authority keeps strict order in this once-independent city—while treasure seekers, criminals, combat librarians, nightmare artists, angels, demons, dispossessed knights, grad students, and other fools gather in its ever-changing alleys, hungry for the next big score.
Priestess/investment banker Kai Pohala (last seen in Full Fathom Five) hits town to corner Agdel Lex's burgeoning nightmare startup scene, and to visit her estranged sister Ley. But Kai finds Ley desperate at the center of a shadowy, and rapidly unravelling, business deal. When Ley ends up on the run, wanted for a crime she most definitely committed, Kai races to track her sister down before the Authority finds her first. But Ley has her own plans, involving her ex-girlfriend, a daring heist into the god-haunted desert, and, perhaps, freedom for an occupied city. Because Alikand might not be completely dead—and some people want to finish the job.

        The city of Alikand was destroyed during the God Wars, but 150 years later a town of sorts has arisen. Kai Pohala arrives to find her estranged sister Ley caught in the middle of a bad business deal and accused of murder. This sixth "Craft Sequence" novel (after Four Roads Cross) brings back beloved characters from previous books.--KC

        August 1, 2017
        In the latest installment in the Craft Sequence series, Kai Pohala, the priest and builder of custom gods who busted a major conspiracy in 2014's Full Fathom Five, is shocked to learn that her estranged sister, Lei, may be involved in murder. Lei is on the run, and Kai is desperate to find her, but is there any possible way Kai can salvage something good out of this seemingly impossible situation? The Craft Sequence series is hugely imaginative (it's set in the aftermath of the God Wars, in a world where magic is real, though the author has said these are metaphors for the world of big business) and epic in scale, so readers entering the series with this book, the sixth in the series, might feel a bit disconcerted. For readers familiar with the series, though, this is another full-throttle fantasy adventure.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2017, American Library Association.)
