city-of-stairs-bennettCity of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennet

 

The city of Bulikov once wielded the powers of the gods to conquer the world, enslaving and brutalizing millions–until its divine protectors were killed. Now Bulikov has become just another colonial outpost of the world’s new geopolitical power, but the surreal landscape of the city itself–first shaped, now shattered, by the thousands of miracles its guardians once worked upon it–stands as a constant, haunting reminder of its former supremacy.
