Publisher's Summary

Django Wexler's City of Stone and Silence is the second book in the cinematic fantasy Wells of Sorcery Trilogy featuring a fierce young woman skilled in the art of combat magic on an epic mission to steal a ghost ship.

After surviving the Vile Rot, Isoka, Meroe, and the rest of Soliton’s crew finally arrive at Soliton's mysterious destination, the Harbor - a city of great stone ziggurats, enshrouded in a ghostly veil of Eddica magic. And they're not alone. 

Royalty, monks, and madmen live in a precarious balance, and by night take shelter from monstrous living corpses. None know how to leave the Harbor, but if Isoka can't find a way to capture Soliton and return it to the Emperor's spymaster before a year is up, her sister Tori's life will be forfeit. 

But there's more to Tori's life back in Kahnzoka than the comfortable luxury Isoka intended for her. By night, she visits the lower wards, risking danger to help run a sanctuary for mage-bloods fleeing the Emperor's iron fist. When she discovers that Isoka is missing, her search takes her deep in the mires of intrigue and revolution. And she has her own secret - the power of Kindre, the Well of Mind, which can bend others to its will. Though she's spent her life denying this brutal magic, Tori will use whatever means she has to with Isoka's fate on the line...

Not as good as first book.

After the first book in the The Wells of Sorcery Trilogy, I was looking forward to City of Stone and Silence. Unfortunately, this book starts off right at the beginning with a new POV character in Isoka's sister Tori, and a new narrator for this character Nancy Wu. The book alternates chapters with Tori and Isoka and I found myself dreading Tori's parts. I really didn't care for Ms. Wu's narration, and didn't find myself all that interested in Tori's part of the story. Perhaps it will all come together in the next book, but I had a hard time getting through this one.

Isoka's story, and the narration of Catherine Ho, were as interesting as the first book. Overall, Disappointing.

Loved Catherine Ho, now love Nancy Wu, too!

I’m hooked on Django Wexler’s storytelling. That said, I’m not certain that I’d heard of Catherine Ho before “ Ship of Smoke & Steel”, but really grew to love her. The addition of Nancy Wu to this second book in the series threw me at first...for about 30 seconds. But the perspective of Tori being spoken by an additional voice makes sense, and Ms Wu’s talent is every bit as extraordinary as that of Ms Ho. Two unique talents to share the tale of Mr Wexler just made this twice as enjoyable.
