Publisher's Summary

The incredible final book in the phenomenon fantasy series described as “future classics" follows one man's dangerous journey through a labyrinthine world and the mysteries he uncovers along the way (Los Angeles Times).

As Marat's siege engine bores through the Tower, erupting inside ringdoms and leaving chaos in its wake, Senlin can do nothing but observe the mayhem from inside the belly of the beast. Caught in a charade, Senlin desperately tries to sabotage the rampaging Hod King, even as Marat's objective grows increasingly clear. The leader of the zealots is bound for the Sphinx's lair and the unimaginable power it contains. 

In the city under glass at the Tower's summit, Adam discovers a utopia where everyone inexplicably knows the details of his past. As Adam unravels the mystery of his fame, he soon discovers the crowning ringdom conceals a much darker secret.

Aboard the State of Art, Edith and her crew adjust to the reality that Voleta has awoken from death changed. She seems to share more in common with the Red Hand now than her former self. While Edith wars for the soul of the young woman, a greater crisis looms: They will have to face Marat on unequal footing and with Senlin caught in the crossfire. 

And when the Bridge of Babel is finally opened, and the Brick Layer's true ambition revealed, neither they nor the Tower will ever be the same again.

Not What I Expected

With such a huge book, I was expecting a more cleanly tied-up ending. With so many different "main" characters, it felt like half of them were left out in the resolution. The ending that we did get seemed a bit lackluster and sad. Overall, I would say that it was fine; Lots of fanciful details leading up to the conclusion, then barely any at the end.

Brilliant conclusion!

I find it hard to categorize this story. It was fantastic, vivid, and beautifully realized. The characters are complex, varied, and yet some how relatable despite the fact that they are navigating a world unlike any other. The story is action packed. I never had any idea what would happen next and I loved the ride.
