The City Imperishable's secret master and heir to the long-vacant throne has vanished from a locked room, as politics have turned deadly in a bid to revive the city's long-vanished empire. The city's dwarfs, stunted from spending their childhoods in confining boxes, are restive. Bijaz the Dwarf, leader of the Sewn faction among the dwarfs, fights their persecution. Jason the Factor, friend and apprentice to the missing master, works to maintain stability in the absence of a guiding hand. Imago of Lockwood struggles to revive the office of Lord Mayor in a bid to turn the City Imperishable away from the path of destruction. These three must contend with one another as they race to resolve the threats to the city.

About the Author:

No Bio

From Booklist:

Campbell Award winner Lake's second novel (after Rocket Science 2005) is a contemporary fantasy that launches a planned series featuring a byzantine metropolis called the City Imperishable. When the city's de facto and largely unknown leader vanishes from a locked room, his apprentice, Jason the Factor, struggles to maintain civilian order in the face of terrifying hauntings from the noumenal world and the threat of advancing enemy soldiers beyond the city's walls. As if these challenges weren't enough, Bijaz the Dwarf, an estranged business partner of Jason's deceased father, is planning an uprising to end the persecution of the eccentric Sewn faction of dwarves, and Imago of Lockwood wants to return leadership to the now-defunct office of lord mayor. While vying among themselves for ultimate control, Jason, Bijaz, and Imago discover that they share a common dream of returning the City Imperishable to its former glory. Lake's masterfully atmospheric prose, littered with odd and endearing minutiae, sustains unforgettable characters, making this essential reading in the increasingly popular subgenre of urban fantasy.
