As a magical revolution remakes a city, an ancient evil is awakened in a brilliant new novel from the Hugo-nominated author of Foundryside and the Divine Cities trilogy.
Having narrowly saved the metropolis of Tevanne from destruction, Sancia Grado and her allies have turned to their next task: sowing the seeds of a full-on magical- industrial revolution. If they succeed, the secrets behind scriving-the art of imbuing everyday objects with sentience-will be accessible to all of Tevanne's citizens, much to the displeasure of the robber-barons who've hoarded this knowledge for themselves.
But one of Sancia's enemies has embarked on a desperate gambit, an attempt to resurrect a figure straight out of legend-an immortal being known as a heirophant. Long ago, the heirophant was an ordinary man, but he's used scriving to transform himself into something closer to a god. Once awakened, he'll stop at nothing to remake the world in his horrifying image.
And if Sancia can't stop this ancient power from returning? Well, the only way to fight a god...is with another god. Hachette Fall 19/Winter 20 Omnibus
