Same world. New battle.


A generation ago, Voortyashtan was the stronghold of the god of war and death, the birthplace of fearsome supernatural sentinels who killed and subjugated millions. Now, the city lies in ruins and its god is dead. So it makes perfect sense that General Turyin Mulaghesh — foul-mouthed hero of the battle of Bulikov, rumored war criminal, ally of an embattled Prime Minister — has been exiled there to count down the days until she can draw her pension and be forgotten. At least, it makes the perfect cover story...


The Elevator Pitch

Robert Jackson Bennett describes his CITY OF BLADES to unsuspecting victims at NYC Comic Con 2015.

Every once in a while I read a book that's so well done, I find myself wanting to punch the author in the face out of pure envy. Congratulations Bennett, you just made the face-punching list!"

Jim C. Hines, Hugo Award winning author of Libriomance

Dazzling, sophisticated and thoroughly modern... Imagine China Mieville and George R. R. Martin stuck in an elevator, with only a laptop to keep them company, and you’re almost there. Robert Jackson Bennett is a name to remember and a talent to behold.”

G. Brown, Nerds of a Feather

Every five to ten years, a novel will come along in the fantasy genre that remixes what came before in a powerful resonant fashion... watershed novels that evoke a perfect symmetry of resonance and freshness... City of Stairs is one such novel.”

Rob H. Bedford,

Robert Jackson Bennett deserves a huge audience. This is the book that will earn it for him. A story that draws you in, brilliant world building, and oh my God, Sigrud. You guys are going to love Sigrud."

Brent Weeks, New York Times bestselling author of The Way of Shadows

Absolutely blew me away. Bennett's writing is so impressively transportive that you're nearly sure one day you'll wake up in Bulikov...It boils down to just read this book. Robert Jackson Bennett is genre fiction's best kept secret. He's a secret that needs to be shared.”
