From Goodreads:

Kaidu and Rat have only just recovered from the assassination attempt on the General of All Blades when more chaos breaks loose in the Nameless City: deep conflicts within the Dao nation are making it impossible to find a political solution for the disputed territory of the City itself.

To complicate things further, Kaidu is fairly certain he's stumbled on a formula for the lost weapon of the mysterious founders of the City. . . . But sharing it with the Dao military would be a complete betrayal of his friendship with Rat. Can Kai find the right solution before the Dao find themselves at war?

Yes to more books from Faith. I really liked the first one, it was a great mix of interesting characters, mystery, and setting. The Nameless City is a curious place, one that belongs to everyone and to no one. One that holds many secrets in its walls and its towers. It's also great at highlighting what empire and colonization does, how a group can come in and claim a space, call it theirs, but is it really theirs? What about those who came before? What about those who built it? I can't wait for this next story.


  1. This sounds like a good one. I'll have to check it out. Enjoy!

  2. I loved The Nameless City and can't wait for this! It's too bad we have a pretty long wait ahead of us. :/
