5.0 out of 5 stars A new favourite fantasy
Reviewed in Canada 🇨🇦 on March 22, 2022
The City of Dusk by Tara Sim is an unputdownable start to an epic fantasy trilogy.

Four realms.
Four gods.
Four houses.
Four heirs.

Before the gods cut the realms off from each other, there was a natural flow of energy between them. Since the Sealing, the four realms are all slowly dying. In the City of Dusk, the four rival heirs devise a plan to restore balance to the realms.

Although the heirs are technically vying for the crown, they have formed a loose friendship of sorts over the years. Their quest to save their realm will constantly test their loyalty to each other and their families.

This book has it all: complex world-building, fully-fleshed characters, political intrigue, and an intriguing magic system. While it follows classic fantasy tropes, it is still an utterly compelling read. I could not read it fast enough, especially with frequent mini cliffhangers. It is a long and detailed book, but I never once felt bored while reading it.

It takes cultural inspiration from our world. There’s also some great queer representation.

There are many characters in this book. It took a bit to get a handle on them all. At first, I kept getting two characters mixed up, but their voices became clear soon enough. Taesia Lastrider has to be my favourite character. She will go to any length to seek revenge for wrongs done to her or her family.

This book was so gripping right from the beginning. This first book takes place in one realm, but I can’t wait to see how big the world gets in the next instalment.

Thank you to Orbit Books for the finished copy to review!
