The City Darkens
Book 1 in the Raud Grima Trilogy

After a decade of managing the family estate in the provinces, with only the rarest visit from her husband Reister, Myadar Sölbói is suddenly uprooted and brought to the glittering island capital. When Reister tears her son Bersi away from her, Myadar, ignorant and grief-stricken, attempts to navigate the royal court, but becomes a pawn in the political games of others.

Sickened by the injustices she witnesses and by the horror of the new tyrannical order, she resolves to escape with her son, even if it means adopting the guise of the legendary Raud Gríma - and even if she has to tear apart the whole world to do it.

The City Darkens is set in a decopunk world where semiautonomous robots are commonplace but cars are rare and propeller-driven light aircraft are the latest tool of warcraft. It is world where society and nature are linked inextricably with the gods, who are as real as they are ephemeral. It is a world ruled by Helésey, an island city where the aristocracy live decadent lives and play politics with gossip and sex, while the poorest of the poor live in shanty towns underground. It is a world ripe for revolution - all it needs is a spark, and all Hel will break loose...

From a five-star review by Richard McGowan: "This is a wonderful addition to the continuing Veronica Barry story. I'm getting to enjoy the series and the characters more with each volume. It's so easy to get really involved with them. Martin's prose is first-rate, and her pacing is always really well-done. She does a great job of building the tension and the mystery in small doses as 'the spirits' feed Veronica information."

In this fourth installment of the Veronica Barry mystery series, Veronica helps Miguel Santiago, artist and brother of Ariana Santiago, a spirit she met the previous summer, as he tries to find a lost deed to his father's house.
