Summary:

Jim Butcher, the #1 New York Times bestselling author of the Dresden Files and the Codex Alera novels, conjures up a new series set in a fantastic world of noble families, steam-powered technology, and magic-wielding warriors. . . .
 
Since time immemorial, the Spires have sheltered humanity. Within their halls, the ruling aristocratic houses develop scientific marvels, foster trade alliances, and maintain fleets of airships to keep the peace.
 
Captain Grimm commands the merchant ship Predator. Loyal to Spire Albion, he has taken their side in the cold war with Spire Aurora, disrupting the enemy’s shipping lines by attacking their cargo vessels. But when the Predator is damaged in combat, Grimm joins a team of Albion agents on a vital mission in exchange for fully restoring his ship. 
 
And as Grimm undertakes this task, he learns that the conflict between the Spires is merely a premonition of things to come. Humanity’s ancient enemy, silent for more than ten thousand years, has begun to stir once more. And death will follow in its wake. . . .

    My fist book by this author and like so many of my favourites I am eager to explore his collection.

  • Arthur Keech

    Narrator was a disappointment. My standards for audiobooks are quite high.

  • Erik Burns

    Eh is how I feel about this book. Wasn't terribly captivating and does not make me want to finish the series.

  • Chrystal JACKSON

    Dresden books still favorite but I enjoyed this better than Calderon series.

  • Kristen Simler

    I absolutely loved this book!!! Jim Butcher is a master at building characters you can't help but love. He allows his characters to change as good and bad happen to them... His plot is well thought out and the spires are just a brilliant idea for a society to live in. I am counting down the time until the second book arrives!!!

    Fun and exciting! Lots of characters well narrated. Excellent battle descriptions
