The city of Voortyashtan was once the home of the goddess of death, war and destruction, but now it's little more than a ruin.
General Turyin Mulaghesh is called out of retirement and sent to this hellish place to find a Saypuri secret agent who's gone AWOL in the middle of a mission. But the ghosts of past wars have followed her there, and soon she begins to wonder what happened to the souls in the afterlife when the gods were defeated by her people, the Polis.
Do the dead sleep soundly in the land of death? Or do they have plans of their own?

A welcome return to the universe of 'City of Stairs', I really didn't want the book to end.
Good narration that was understandable at x2 playback speed.
Looking forward to the last book in the trilogy.
Engaging, thought-provoking, suspense.
.General Turyin Mulaghesh: A one handed,searing femail action hero. Depth of character is expertly revealed as you go on an emotional as well as action packed journey through the twists and turns of the plot.
It is best to say, same excellent style as previous book in the series.
If you enjoyed that, you will enjoy this.
I found them both entertaining through action and suspense as well as insightful with their philosophical undercurrent.
I found the narrator was excellent.
New location, new plot, exploring other characters.
Same excitement, action with clever suspense and a philosophical question in its undercurrent.
I really look forward to the third books release.
