This one wanted to be savored slowly, so I read it in bits and pieces between and during other books, finally finishing on the plane home. Easily the best book I've read this year; I think the last I read that I enjoyed as much was Parker's Engineer trilogy. It reminds me a bit of The Etched City, but it dives into things that The Etched City carefully skirted around. I'm still turning the ending over in my head, trying to decide if there's hope there, or only horror. The narrators are all so unreliable (the city most of all), it's hard to say.
