  1. Well shit I really didn t want to cry today Thank you book, thank you Robert Bennett First off I wish I would have went back and read the first and second book so I could have been totally immersed in the world But, it s okay it was perfect just the way it was and it ripped my heart out It started with some crying in the beginning when Sigrud found out that Shara had been killed it s not a spoiler, read the summary.Dead Dead.He shakes himself, trying to compartmentalize it He feels tears on his [...]

  2. Actual rating 30 stars At least.This is one of the most amazing books I have ever read in the entirety of my entire life I don t think I will ever recover from it I cried I bloody shrimping cried This is outrageous This is scandalous This is disgraceful Ergo, this is most absolutely, completely, overwhelmingly, beautifully scrumpalicious Robert Jackson Bennett, thank thee kindly You killed me dead several times over, and I loved every bloody shrimping second of it Sort of.Bye now I shall return [...]

  3. 4.75ish stars An appropriately perfect or at least near perfect conclusion to a spectacular trilogy, one that I m sad to say goodbye to This has a little bit of everything Mystery, character building, some insanely cool set pieces the aerotram , and all of the emotion one could expect from the climax and eventual denouement Bennett has such a talent for getting to the heart of his characters I never cared much for Mulaghesh until she took the spotlight in City of Blades and I thought Sigrud was [...]

  4. Thanks to Netgalley for the ARC It s getting really hard for me to have content less gushing in certain books Like this one I mean, sure, I can say that Shara has been killed and Sigurd is out to avenge solve her murder, but beyond that, I really can t be as specific as I want to be.The fact is SO MUCH AWESOME happens in this book And I mean crazy awesome Or absolutely Divine Awesome Lordy, some of these reveals came right on top of each other s heels and rather than having you expect a simple m [...]

  5. 5 A buddy read with my comrades BBB Because some books you can only read while your friends hold your hand I cannot say a word about the content of this book Everything would be a spoiler, and if you have read the previous two books, you have an idea of the world If not, don t start with this book you have to read the previous two in order, they are not to be read as stand alones, despite every story being separated from the previous by many years in time The time only serves as giving us perspe [...]

  6. Book 1 3.5 Book 2 3.25 Book 3 4.25 By far my favorite book of the series and not simply because it was the climax The writer developed a much better sense of pacing in this book and it flowed from start to finish Even when it wasn t an action scene there was tension and or a very empathetic reason for that scene One of the better urban fantasy series I ve read The series starts in a quasi steampunk era and flows into a modern era I liked the uniqueness of the transition both of the world and the [...]

  7. Some authors always manage to surprise me Bennett is one of them, with each book I ve read a very different flavor from the other Characterized by complex characters, his stories tend to have vivid world building and plots that explore the relationship between mundane and divine City of Miracles is the third book set in the Divine Cities, and although one could read and enjoy it perfectly well as a stand alone, part of the richness in the story comes from the history of both the world building a [...]

  8. In the Divine days it was the purpose of the gods to shape the reality of the world s citizens.The gods are gone But this need remains.Now it is the task of governments to tell their citizens what reality is, to define it for them For citizens are, by and large, wholly incapable of doing this for themselves City of Stairs elevated me onto the cloud number 9 I loved the city of Bulikov, I loved Shara, the MC and the focal point of the tale, I loved all the story arcs and their total disregard for [...]

  9. Thirteen long years Sigrud je Harkvaldsson has waited He has waited to hear from his friend Shara Komayd that it is finally ok for him to come home Sigrud s hopes are snuffed out like a candle when he learns Shara has been assassinated Sigrud decides to find and make those responsible for her murder pay does not matter if they are man or divine.City of Miracles was an excellent conclusion to The Divine Cities trilogy I have to admit I wasn t sure if I was really interested in reading it as I was [...]

  10. Quite a few people have said in their reviews and I totally agree that this book makes them want to go back and read the whole series through again It is really that good How could I ever have guessed that Sigrud would make such a splendid hero After all he is an old man now and past his prime, but the author plays a clever trick You have to read it to find out what The other characters are all excellent too, some of them from previous books and some of them new I especially enjoyed the Divine C [...]

  11. This was absolutely bloody fantastic Robert Jackson Bennet managed to somehow add even layers to an already layered series, enough so that I contemplated re reading the first two books just to able to appreciate them even It is an impressively wonderful trilogy and a world I am very sad to have to leave.This third and last book of this marvelous trilogy follows Sigrud after the events of the previous book he has lived off the grid when the news of view spoiler Shara s hide spoiler death reach [...]

  12. 5 stars for all 3 entries into this trilogy Really, this story is just so good Complex, believable characters that the reader really cares about, great plotting, and a wonderful balance between small yet heartbreaking details and dramatic, world shattering events in a consistently interesting, surprising world Everything I want from my fantasy adventure This story begins 20 years after the events of City of Blades The Viking berserker esque Sigrud has been in hiding for all those years, staying [...]

  13. Come into the night, and I will show you greatness Robert Jackson Bennett is writing one of the greatest ongoing fantasy series today, and I somehow wish I didn t read this third installment right after the even amazing and emotionally wrenching Stone Sky by Jemisin What is at first glance a superhero action romp with a badass killer machine Sigrud going on a quest to avenge the assassination of his former master and only friend, Ashara Komayd, slyly morphs into a challenge of the way we look a [...]

  14. The last decade or so brought us very few truly remarkable fantasy books, and even fewer that have helped to move the genre in the new directions Science fiction has seen its decline as well, but that s another story Of course, although fantasy is paradoxically younger genre than science fiction, it relies far on the tropes established by fairy tales and mythology, so it s quite difficult to find some new and unexplored waters to sail through on this tired old sea To make things difficult, the [...]

  15. 4 of 5 stars at The BiblioSanctum bibliosanctum 2017 05 03 Robert Jackson Bennett is back with the third installment of his Divine Cities sequence, and so ends one of the most brilliant and extraordinary fantasy series in recent times First, we were introduced to this incredible world of Divinities and miracles in City of Stairs, joining protagonist Shara Komayd as she fearlessly stood against a god That was soon followed by the even impressive City of Blades, a thrilling mystery starring the i [...]

  16. Fantasy Review BarnA boy chases laughter through the city Followed by a presence he can t see the boy keys in on laughter, any laughter, and throws himself desperately toward it looking for shelter or a way out In a land once ruled by miracles the unnamed boy uses the only one he has at hand hoping for it to prove useful just one time And when finally hitting a laughter that rings a bit falseWell that is where City of Miracles really begins One of the finest fantasy series of the decade is gett [...]

  17. While I liked a lot about City of Miracles, I m disappointed to say I didn t necessarily like the third book of The Divine Cities It s imaginative and well written, and bears all the hallmarks of Robert Jackson Bennett s other novels, but the contemporary and civilized the series gets, the less compelling I find it.Despite the magic, the swords, and the gods, this instalment is less epic fantasy and action thriller It s set in a city so advanced, it s almost recognizable as a contemporary seco [...]

  18. Four stars, because this is the least brilliant book of the series, by my standards It s still a great book and honestly a fantasy that many authors would pay to be able to write imho , but I found book 1 and 2 definitely a step ahead in terms of plot I do think the main concept was quite brilliant and touched some rather difficult topics, but I m not completely satisfied with how everything played out, or rather, with how the events came to an end The resolution felt rather convenient and, cons [...]

  19. Sigrud bold, fierce and merciless as always has been living last decade in exile, waiting for Shara to once again call him,ask him to join her Instead he hears she is assasinated He decides it s his last mission, to find Shara s killers and punish them In doing so, he finds out he has yet another operation Another reason to live, not to give up That s protecting Shara s adopted daughter Tattana against a new young god He knows he only should think about things he knows, it s the rule never worry [...]

  20. This third and last of this series begins with a shocker and a heartbreak.Sigrud je Harkvaldsson, after thirteen years of waiting for contact from Shara Komayd, his former partner, sets out alone to solve a crime that strikes very close to home after a lifetime of hard strikes.We get to meet Shara s adopted daughter Taty, and meet the great Mulagesh again, as Sigrid battles assassins and the Divine in order to get justice The stakes accelerate, and there are some terrific action scenes, vividly [...]

  21. At least until I will finish The Broken Earth trilogy by N.K Jemisin, The Divine Cities is the best fantasy series that I ve read in the last 5 years Even if the explored themes are different, this trilogy is at least as fun and inovative as was the Bas Lag series by China Mieville and with a group o characters that are simply exceptional This kind of fiction makes it impossible for me to read the majority of fantasy series out there.

  22. Always hard saying goodbye to a wonderful series And yet it is inevitable After five days of consideration, I finally decided to give this book five stars Why It gave me a satisfying conclusion to a wonderful series.I was really annoyed when the synopsis came out Like, seriously, it announced that a main character died In the synopsis What the hell Nevertheless, I patiently waited for the release It was not in vain The story flowed effortlessly from when Sigrud who we all know is a certified bad [...]

  23. A brilliant end to an amazing series.It s many years after the events of City of Blades Sigrud is living in hiding in a logging settlement and Shara has been Prime Minister of Saypur and was living an active retirement until she is assassinated, apparently with Divine help With Shara s death Sigrud descends on the perpetrators like an avenging angel only to discover the extent of Shara s activity in recent years and her adopted daughter Sigrud finds himself up to the eyeballs in unresolved matte [...]

  24. Close your eyes I ll be here in the morning E, o tome je ovaj roman O tom ose aju da e, bez obzira na o tri svet i lo e ljude i mra ne dane, neko biti tu, pored Ne mogu da zamislim lep u, jednostavniju re enicu koja to ovako savr eno do arava.Takva je i knjiga Sada ve tradicionalne Benetove mane su tu nije ba siguran kako da dodje od takodje tradicionalno briljijantne ideje do realizacije, te podle e pritisku odredjenih ustaljenih obrazaca Dodu e, ipak uspeva da se izvu e od potpune bajatosti, k [...]

  25. Executive Summary When I say this is the weakest book of the series, that s less of a knock on this book as it is on the strength of the previous two It s still quite good, just not quite as good as the others.Full ReviewSigrud was one of the highlights of City of Stairs When I heard he d be the main character of this book, I was really excited It was definitely fun to follow him around again, but at it s core this is a revenge plot, and not quite as interesting as the mystery plots of the last [...]

  26. My least favorite book of the trilogy that was lacking in almost every area compared to the previous two Everything cool was there but it was like the lite versions of them and a Sigrud lite don t cut it The last twenty pages were great but did not make up for the averageness of the rest.

  27. While it is common for ratings in a series to drift higher because there are fewer readers and those that continue reading do so because they like the writer, Bennett has really done a truly excellent job wrapping up the Divine Cities trilogy While all three books are action packed and political, this one seems to delve into deeper themes, including power, love, family, personal purpose, and godhood Sigrud je Harkvaldsson is adrift, having lost the things that mean the most to him, when he decid [...]

  28. I just loved it The peak of all the the books before, it is an amazing conclusion for the series and hopefully the start for a new and amazing adventure , full of tears, full of action, mystery, adventure and drama.
