Publisher's Summary

"Where your shadow falls, there shall be night everlasting. And all shall dwell within the night, and the night shall swallow all."

Sigrud je Harkvaldsson has nothing left to live for. He is a fugitive and an exile, wanted for murder throughout the empire of Saypur. His entire existence has seemed only to visit suffering and death upon those he wants most to protect - while he himself has emerged from each battle cruelly unscathed, inexplicably immune to forces both natural and divine.

Then his closest friend and ally, former prime minister Shara Komayd, is assassinated. Suddenly Sigrud's life has a purpose: to find Shara's killers and make them suffer for what they've done. And Sigrud has much experience in matters of suffering. Yet as he pursues his quarry with his customary terrifying efficiency, Sigrud learns that far more than revenge is at stake. Because Shara's assassin is no mere mortal, and her murder was just the beginning. Using death after death to fuel his powers, the killer plans to bring down a night of eternal darkness and rule within it. Only Sigrud - and the strange curse that has destroyed his life - can stop him.

    "I Just Didn't Want it to End"
    Any additional comments?

    I am so very sad that this trilogy is now over. It is easily my favorite series of the past few years, even beating out the stuff Brandon Sanderson has been releasing.

    This time the book follows Sigrud, Shara's old partner, as he goes through several major cities of the world where gods once ruled before they were murdered. Sigrud says he does only one thing well, cause violence. Without the help of the Cerebral Shara, Sigrud must fall back on his old spy-craft and his tried and true skill to combat an ever darkening enemy. Alone so much, he meets up with two young girls and the reclusive richest woman on the continent. These meetings means he has to come to terms with all the misfortune around him and that he can apply his one talent to the benefit of others.

    There are some old faces that show up like General Mulagesh, but they are all getting older and older as a decade or more has gone by since City of Blades. This is one of the things that makes this series so amazing. It doesn't fall back on the familiar characters who have already had their growth. It introduces new ones that fit so well.

    This book is a touching and exhilarating end to the series that I enjoyed so much. I still recommend it to anyone who wants a breath of fresh air in the sea of steerotypical fantasy or convoluted history books that GRRM made popular.

    "How is Bennett not getting more attention?"
    What did you love best about City of Miracles?

    Bennett brings his own voice and vision to a fantasy world entering the late Modern Age. His originality and humor are always his greatest attributes and here, he does it again (and perhaps best).


    What other book might you compare City of Miracles to and why?

    Honestly, his books are very original, only presently matched by N.K. Jemisin and Max Gladstone, though I personally feel his works are superior.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Not going to throw any spoilers in.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes and I nearly did.


    Any additional comments?

    It's such an injustice that Bennett's books don't receive more attention. American Elsewhere is phenomenal. Mr. Shivers is chilling. The Troupe is amazing. The Company Man, my least favorite of his works, is better than most books you'll pick up. And...and, the Divine Cities? This series is easily one of the best in present times.
