The God Wars destroyed the city of Alikand. Now, a century and a half and a great many construction contracts later, Agdel Lex rises in its place. Dead deities litter the surrounding desert, streets shift when people aren't looking, a squidlike tower dominates the skyline, and the foreign Iskari Rectification Authority keeps strict order in this once-independent city-while treasure seekers, criminals, combat librarians, nightmare artists, angels, demons, dispossessed knights, grad students, and other fools gather in its ever-changing alleys, hungry for the next big score.

Priestess/investment banker Kai Pohala hits town to corner Agdel Lex's burgeoning nightmare startup scene, and to visit her estranged sister Lei. But Kai finds Lei desperate at the center of a shadowy, and rapidly unravelling, business deal. When Lei ends up on the run, wanted for a crime she most definitely committed, Kai races to track her sister down before the Authority finds her first. But Lei has her own plans, involving her ex-girlfriend, a daring heist into the god-haunted desert, and, perhaps, freedom for an occupied city. Because Alikand might not be completely dead-and some people want to finish the job.

Sharp, original, passionate. --NPR, on the Craft Sequence Balances rich details and a beautifully descriptive narrative with wit, humor, and plenty of sass for a winning series installment. --RT Book Reviews, 4 1/2 starts, Top Pick!, for Four Roads Cross Elegant and ferocious. --Daniel Jose Older, author of Half Resurrection Blues, on Last First Snow This is the best kind of urban fantasy, filled with diverse characters and thought-provoking philosophies. --The Washington Post, on Full Fathom Five If you've been looking for a different kind of fantasy--part urban, part epic, maybe something in between...you'll thoroughly enjoy this novel. --Carrie Vaughn, author of The Kitty Norville series, on Two Serpents Rise Suspenseful and fast-paced throughout, and the diverse, female-led cast is a joy to follow through the fascinating and unusual landscape. --Publishers Weekly Starred Review, on Three Parts Dead
