ROBERT JACKSON BENNETT was born in Baton Rouge, Louisiana, but grew up in Katy, Texas. He attended the University of Texas at Austin and, like a lot of its alumni, was unable to leave the charms of the city. He resides there currently with his wife and children.
Praise for City of Blades:
"Does City of Blades live up to the Locus, World Fantasy,
British Fantasy and GoodReads Choice Award nominated City of
Stairs? Allow me to answer with an emphatic yes. Bennett
is one of the most talented authors writing in SFF today and this
is his finest work to date."
--Fantasy Faction "Just as powerful as the first, and even stronger in significant ways...among the best novels of 2016."
--SF Signal "Does everything a really good sequel should...if anything, it's a better book than its predecessor."
--Tor.com "Not only recaptures the flame of the first book, but also maybe burns a little brighter."
