Summary
  • An atmospheric and intrigue-filled novel of dead gods, buried histories, and a mysterious, protean city--from one of America's most acclaimed young fantasy writers. The city of Bulikov once wielded the powers of the gods to conquer the world, enslaving and brutalizing millions'until its divine protectors were killed. Now Bulikov has become just another colonial outpost of the world's new geopolitical power, but the surreal landscape of the city itself'first shaped, now shattered, by the thousands of miracles its guardians once worked upon it'stands as a constant, haunting reminder of its former supremacy. Into this broken city steps Shara Thivani. Officially, the unassuming young woman is just another junior diplomat sent by Bulikov's oppressors. Unofficially, she is one of her country's most accomplished spies, dispatched to catch a murderer. But as Shara pursues the killer, she starts to suspect that the beings who ruled this terrible place may not be as dead as they seem'and that Bulikov's cruel reign may not yet be over
  • Sent to a backwater colony that was once a god-supported conquering power, spymaster Shara Divani investigates the brutal murder of an historian and uncovers evidence that the city's divine protectors may still be alive
