An intoxicating blend of noir crime, science fiction and fantasy, The Last City is Blade Runner meets Perdido Street Station.
Scorpia – the last city of Aquais – where the Ar Antarians rule, the machine-breeds serve and in between a multitude of races and species eke out an existence somewhere between the ever-blazing city lights and the endless darkness of the underside.
As a spate of murders and abductions grip the city, new recruit Silho Brabel is sent to the Oscuri Trackers, an elite military squad commanded by the notorious Copernicus Kane. But Silho has a terrible secret and must fight to hide her strange abilities and monstrous heritage.
As the team delve deeper into Scorpia's underworld, they discover a nightmare truth.
Hunted by demons, the Trackers must band together with a condemned fugitive, a rogue wraith and a gangster king and stake their lives against an all-powerful enemy to try to save one another and their world.
The Last City is the first book in The Demon War Chronicles. The second book, The Forgotten City is available for pre-order now.
I loved this book. It hooked me in from the opening chapter and didn't let up. It's really imaginative, and blends a science fiction setting with magical themes and ideas extremely well. There are great characters, some brilliant dialogue and a fast paced mystery plot.
Very unique book
I had so much fun with this! The characters and settings are all really unique and it's unlike anything I've read. There are demons, witches and magic but in a science-fiction world of robots, flying cars and genetic manipulation. Really cool concepts are combined to create a great story in which an investigative group try to find those responsible for some brutal murders and uncover more than they bargained for. There are lots of surprises and twists that make this book really fresh and enjoyable.
Very nice-kip going
