I didn’t realize how much I needed dragons in my life.  Man, this book was so much fun.  It was everything I was hoping to find in the first book, and then some.

Sometimes, it doesn’t pay to be nice.  But it’s always the right decision.  Even if you’re a dragon.

City of Stairs (The Divine Cities, #1)
04, Apr

Rating: 4.5/5 Stars

City of Stairs is, at its heart, a murder mystery, with a hull of geopolitical strife & fueled by a peculiar magic that isn't totally understood even by the story's main characters. The perfect recipe for a story that had me up past my bed time many nights in a row.

Rachel Aaron's debut fantasy series is so addictively entertaining and fun that I blasted through all three books in the first omnibus in four days.
