    Has anyone read the Divine Cities by Robert Jackson Bennet?

    I have read the first two books and they are so good!

    They're amaziiiinggg <3

    @Elia LePhant is also a fan. And @Tazren Talamar (who first told me to read City of Stairs, for which I'll be forever grateful)

    I need to do a reread soonish, it's been a few years since I read them now.

    I've never heard of them until now...but looking them up on Goodreads, they sound like a great read, so I've added them to my To-Read list!

    I just read the summary of the first one and it sounds really interesting! Added to my to read list, too.

    They are amazing. It's not the type of thing I would usually read but thought I'd go for something different and I am so glad that I did. I got the third book on Friday and I am really looking forward to starting.

    I like that they moved from Shara to Mulaghesh. How City of Stairs ended left me thinking we would then see Saypur but it was refreshing to move past that political drama that ensued there. I love reading about the Gods and their followers, the traditions, miracles etc.
