‘From the razor-sharp social climbing to the glimmering alchemist’s library to the hidden realms beneath it all, I loved getting lost in this dazzling debut’ S. A. Chakraborty, author of The City of Brass

TO PULL OFF A MIRACLE, HE’LL HAVE TO MASTER THE IMPOSSIBLE.

Welcome to Bezim, where tribes of sword-slinging bravi race through the night, and rich and idle alchemists make magic out of mixing and measuring the four planes of reality.

Siyon Velo scrapes a living hopping between the planes of reality to harvest ingredients for the city’s alchemists. But when Siyon accidentally commits an act of impossible magic, he’s catapulted into the limelight – which is a bad place to be when the planes themselves start lurching out of alignment, threatening to send the city into the sea.

Now Siyon, along with the distractingly handsome Izmirlian Hisarani, might be the city’s only hope.

Discover this wickedly entertaining debut filled to the brim with alchemical magic and a delightful queer romance from one of the most exciting new voices in fantasy
