Band 1The City We Became
Sophie Wittlinger, Thalia-Buchhandlung Bochum
This was the kind of book that I had to force myself to portion out because I did not want it to end. The book‘s concept is deceptively simple and entirely convincing- sometimes, cities‘ souls manifest in actual people, but not every entity in the multiverse is okay with that. The way Jemisin develops her initial idea is so enjoyable- both in terms of plot and in how intellectually satisfying it is. Add to that an amazing cast of characters and you have a book that is pretty much perfect. Literally the only thing I didn’t like about it was that it ended. And since it’s the first part of a trilogy, even that is acceptable.
