BOOKLIST (starred review)

Once, Sancia Grado was just a thief with a grudge and a rare talent. Then she learned how to use that talent, and beat the great merchant houses of Tevanne at their own game. With Clef and Berenice, she even saw off an immortal hierophant - but the war they're fighting now is one they know they can't win.

'Absolutely riveting . . . A magnificent, mind-blowing start to a series I'm hungry for' - Amal El-Mohtar, co-author of This is How You Lose the Time War, in the New York Times on Foundryside

This time, they're not facing robber-baron elites or an immortal hierophant, but an entity whose intelligence is spread over half the globe: a ghost in the machine using the magic of scriving to possess and control not just objects, but human minds.

Despite all their efforts their enemy marches on, implacable, unstoppable - and it's closing in on its true prize: an ancient doorway that leads to the centre of creation itself.

'One of the best fantasy writers on the scene today' says Kirkus Reviews

Sancia and her friends glimpse a last desperate opportunity to stop this unbeatable foe - but to do so, they'll have to unlock the centuries-old mystery of scriving's origins and pull off the most daring heist they've ever attempted.

And as if that weren't enough, their adversary might just have a spy in their ranks - and a last trick up its sleeve . . .

BOOKLIST (starred review)

«Foundryside blew me away, and this is a perfect sequel . . . the book I've most thoroughly and uncomplicatedly enjoyed this year so far. It shocked and delighted and upset me from page to page, managing to thread humour and pathos and intrigue together with the speed and precision of a loom. I'm so excited to see what happens next»

AMAL EL-MOHTAR in THE NEW YORK TIMES

«The exciting beginning of a promising new epic fantasy series. Prepare for ancient mysteries, innovative magic, and heart-pounding heists»

«

Inventive, immersive and thrilling. Do yourself a favour and pick this up

KEVIN HEARNE, New York Times bestselling author of The Iron Druid Chronicles

«Full of devastation, hope, torrid action, mystery and brilliance. His scriving system of re-writing the rules to reality is one of the most creative, rewarding magic systems in any fantasy series I've read. I can't recommend this author, or series, enough. A powerful and satisfying conclusion to this refreshing and inventive trilogy»

NOVEL NOTIONS on LOCKLANDS

«

Gods collide in the high-octane finale to Bennett's epic fantasy Founders Trilogy . . . Bennett advances the plot precipitously and raises his characters' power levels to the "nigh-incomprehensible", but the grounding themes of family and love as Sancia and Berenice risk their happiness to save the world, are what readers will take away

«One of the best series in decades. if the biggest complaint is wanting more, that's a pretty good affirmation of just how excellent this book is, and really the series as a whole»

«Robert Jackson Bennett can expertly marry big concepts with great characterisation - complex worlds with stories filled with human emotion. Both the Divine Cities and Founders books are deep, impressive works that give the reader something to chew over time and time again.
