Full Fathom Five
The Craft Sequence - Book #3
by Max Gladstone
True to form, Full Fathom Five extends the Craft Sequence in another city with another new cast of characters. This time, a woman named Kai tries to save a dying idol, only to accidentally uncover a horrible conspiracy. Gladstone brings us into a modern fantasy world that struggles to create a just society in the face of magic, legalese, and lusts for power. No skeleton kings in this book, but you might find a zombie holding a brain in a jar... and robotic sentinels that enforce some bizarre form of justice.
This is fast becoming one of my favorite series (er, sequences) and I can't wait to read the next one.
