City of Stairs


This book is okay, but it's not that original as some claim it is, and it lacks overall depth. The basic premise of an imperialistic continent conquered by its slaves after its gods were killed is quite original, sure, but the details are all more or less standard.

Bennett seems unwilling to make consequent choices, just for the sake of the not wanting to write about a standard medieval world, but still ends up writing about something that feels like a generic fantasy world.

Still, all things considered...
