Following "Perdido Street Station" and "The Scar," acclaimed author China Mieville returns with his hugely anticipated Del Rey hardcover debut. With a fresh and fantastical band of characters, he carries us back to the decadent squalor of New Crobuzon--this time, decades later.
It is a time of wars and revolutions, conflict and intrigue. New Crobuzon is being ripped apart from without and within. War with the shadowy city-state of Tesh and rioting on the streets at home are pushing the teeming city to the brink. A mysterious masked figure spurs strange rebellion, while treachery and violence incubate in unexpected places.
In desperation, a small group of renegades escapes from the city and crosses strange and alien continents in the search for a lost hope.
In the blood and violence of New Crobuzon's most dangerous hour, there are whispers. It is the time of the iron council. . . .
The bold originality that broke Mieville out as a new force of the genre is here once more in "Iron Council": the voluminous, lyrical novel that is destined to seal his reputation as perhaps the edgiest mythmaker of the day.
