City of Blades (The Divine Cities #2) - Robert Jackson Bennett 8.76   4

A densely atmospheric and intrigue-filled fantasy novel, set in the same world as the author’s City of Stairs

A few months ago, General Turyin Mulaghesh was one of the most powerful people in all the Saypur empire.

Then, for reasons known to nobody but herself, Mulaghesh abruptly turned her back on a position most people could only dream of.

Now? Now she’s about to be shuffled off to one of those backwater postings where lame-duck senior officers like her are put out to pasture, left to count down the days before she draws her military pension and heads off into a long, lonely retirement.

At least, that’s the cover story.

The truth is that the general has been pressed into service one last time, dispatched to investigate a discovery only she’s qualified to make sense of, one with the potential to change the world — or destroy it.

The trouble is that this old soldier isn’t at all sure she’s still got what it takes to play the hero.
