Publisher's Summary

Once he was a hero of the Great War, and then a member of the dreaded Black House. Now he is the criminal linchpin of Low Town. His name is Warden. He thought he had left the war behind him, but a summons from up above brings the past sharply, uncomfortably, back into focus. 

General Montgomery's daughter is missing somewhere in Low Town, searching for clues about her brother's murder. The General wants her found, before the stinking streets can lay claim to her, too.

Dark, violent, and shot through with corruption, this book is a fantastic successor to a much-heralded fantasy debut.

Strong story, weak narrator

I liked this volume as much as the first, but the narrator was a disappointment. The Warden sounded like Casey Kasem, which didn't really have the gravitas the previous narrator gave him. All the other characters except Adolphus had high voices, which was kind of weird, and some were basically indistinguishable from one another. The women's voices were worst of all. You'd think someone who mostly does high voices could do women's voices, but he couldn't. I got over my disappointment, and still enjoyed the story, but i hope the next volume has a better narrator.

GREAT novel, the narrator though...

The narrator of book one, Mr. Shapiro, is so unbelievably good for this part, that it defies logic as to why a switch was made for book two.

The author, Mr. Polansky, is also very skilled. I love his books. If you haven’t read/listened to “A City Dreaming”, as yet, it is also highly recommended. The narrator for THAT novel (Mr. Meyers) is likewise perfect.

However. This guy, Mat Godfrey. I have no idea what happened here, but man, swing and a miss. I get he had some rather large shoes to fill, but seriously, I’ve literally been waiting years for books two and three in this series to make it to Audible, and this is pretty disappointing.

Wish there were more like it!

I love the mix of gangster stories in fantasy worlds. This series is quite good and reminds me of the Jhereg Cycle.

Enjoyed it even more than the first novel.

Is Daniel Polansky the best writer I've ever seen? No, but he has created a fun but grounded fantasy world for his books to take place in as well as entertaining characters to fill it. The second book in the lowtown series was better than the first and had an even more hardboiled noir detective story that was almost like Kurosawa in its setup. I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that the next will also come to Audible.

As a side note, I disagree with the hate on the narrator. He pulls a good monotone and uncaring kind of attitude with his representation of the warden, which fits him well. Some characters sound similar or maybe a little too old, but overall, I think Matt Godfrey did a good job.
