In this stunning follow-up to his acclaimed debut, Thunderer," "
Felix Gilman's brave hero returns from one thrilling and dangerous
quest only to confront another. In a magical landscape where time
is meaningless, reality precarious, and countless selves work
toward countless possible futures, one man must seek a city's
truth--and rediscover his own.
"Imprisoned with a prophetic half human, half beast, the lost man
learns his name: "Arjun." Slowly the terrible memories emerge, and
at last he remembers where--and when--he has been. . . .
"In the last days of the once great city of Ararat, Arjun is just
another ghost lost in the shadows of the Mountain. To some, the
Mountain is a myth, to others, a weapon. Above all, it is a dark
palace leaving its seekers to wander the city below. For no matter
how far one walks, the Mountain never draws closer, and time itself
becomes another trap.
Rescued by two sisters from the mindless Know-Nothings who erode
what's left of the city, Arjun volunteers to retrieve their
long-lost third sister from a ghost like himself: Brace-Bel,
another man out of time. It will require a perilous trek through
ruins to a decadent mansion--one surrounded by traps and devices
that could not possibly exist yet. And what awaits Arjun inside is
something he could not possibly have imagined.
As he struggles to recover the lost girl and piece the fragments of
his life back together, Arjun knows he must finally return to the
beast to hear the rest of its prophecy. But each step is more
treacherous than the last . . . and the beast who knows his fate
may pose the most deadly trial yet.
A spellbinding novel of imagination and intrigue, Gears of the City
will propel you into an adventure like no other, in a world like no
