3.5 out of 5 (1 rating)


The Drowning City: home to exiles and expatriates, pirates and smugglers. And violent revolutionaries who will stop at nothing to overthrow the corrupt Imperial government.For Isyllt Iskaldur, necromancer and spy, the brewing revolution is a chance to prove herself to her crown.

All she has to do is find and finance the revolutionaries, and help topple the palaces of Symir.

But she is torn between her new friends and her duties, and the longer she stays in this monsoon-drenched city, the more intrigue she uncovers - even the dead are plotting.

As the waters rise and the dams crack, Isyllt must choose between her mission and the city she came to save.

Review by

This was an interesting and involved read, maybe a little too involved occasionally and not enough difference between some of the characters that I really felt like I was looking through a different person's head occasionally but still readable and a well realised alternative world.Isyllt Iskaldur is a necromancer and spy and is trying to assist the revolution so her empire can use it for their own goals. She finds friends and isn't sure what she's going to do next or how she's going to do what she plans.It's not a bad book and I do look forward to reading more but I think the author needs a little more polish.
