Divine Cities #1: City of Stairs
The city of Bulikov wielded the powers of the gods to conquer the world until its divine protectors were killed, but the shifting, surreal landscape of the city stands as a haunting reminder of its former supremacy. Shara Thivani is dispatched there - officially a junior diplomat, unofficially one of her country's most accomplished spies - to catch a murderer. But she starts to suspect that the cruel beings who ruled Bulikov may not be as dead as they seem.

To escape a life of petticoats and politeness, Hilary and her gargoyle friend set out on an adventure that may or may not involve a map without an X, a magical treasure that doesn't exist, a rogue governess, a crew of misfit scallywags, and the most treacherous - and unexpected - villain on the High Seas.
