review Foundryside 103 Robert Jackson Bennett Ò 3 free download characters Foundryside N the city of Tevanne there’s nobody with the power to stop them To have a chance at surviving and at stopping the deadly transformation that’s under way Sancia will have to marshal unlikely allies learn to harness the artifact’s power for herself and undergo her own transformation one that will turn her into something she could never have imagine. Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the few authors I watch out for Recently I finished his early award winning book Philip K Dick Edgar Anthony The Company Man so I was very excited at the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of Foundryside his latest workBennett has a habit of starting out a book slow letting the reader get a feel for the world and the characters before heading into action He s gotten better at that through his career Foundryside springs into action on the first pages during an elaborate heist Skilled independent thief Sancia is in the midst of stealing an object in a safe although she accidentally burns down half the waterfront in the process Unfortunately this attracts the attention of Gregor Donaldo head of security at the waterfront and noble heir as her actions have jeopardized his long term plans for a neutral police force in a decidedly partisan city For me this had a decidedly new adult feel a bit younger than I enjoy I think I appreciated the seasoned characters in his Divine Cities series and in some of his other works He also seems to be experimenting a bit with world building in this one and I felt his magic system was far too detailed with too much information dumping Brandon Sanderson owes readers an apology Thankfully I had the experience of knowing Bennett and his interesting stories to keep me pushing through I persevered and around page 99 found that the story was finally gripping meThe plot is essentially a series of heists and cops and robbers that takes place in a city controlled by merchant houses who have a complete disregard for the underclass It s not an unusual setting and I appreciate Bennett s attempt to create a realistic vision of the proto Renaissance setting so many fantasy authors love to play in However beyond the Commons area as a dirty cesspool where bodies were literally left to rot on the streets and the gated merchant communities as pristine light infused compounds I didn t get much of a sense of how the two pieces fit togetherThe magic system is complex using a system of scriving on objects to tell them what their purpose is and how to interact with the world Bennett spends far too much time describing this although to give him credit he at least tries to do this in conversation with Sancia and later with scriving experts explaining what they do But to me there was a lot of unnecessary information dumping kind of like explaining the molecular process behind tasting and nerve signal processing when really I just want a piece of chocolateI enjoyed Sachia s personality a great deal at the beginning and thought she developed reasonably well One of Bennett s strengths is his ability to create female characters that feel like real people The Divine Cities have a wide variety of female characters and Foundryside is no exception A love interest developed during this story that felt somewhat unfounded however I credit his attempt at being diverse Again it just didn t hit the complicated notes in The Divine CitiesTwo side notes one occasionally too much vernacular crept in It was particularly noticeable with swearing goddamn bothered me as I hadn t noted any godschurchesreligion I think I recall a bullshit although we hadn t heard of any bulls or even cows as well as some other form of shitting me that seemed far too familiar These were varied with scrumming so go figure The second issue is purely stylistic and not troublesome to me but I imagine it will bother some readers A lot of the dialogue is in mindspeak and so is set off in italics to differentiate it Which means there are pages of alternating regular style text and italicsAll that said this just didn t resonate with me like his other books City of Stairs and it s follow up City of Blades were easily among the best books I ve read in years interesting emotional and flat out good story telling I loved the Southwest atmosphere and the magical realism of American Elsewhere and The Company Man had me paying attention to it s intriguing mystery despite some heavy handed moralizing This seemed a bit rushed a strange combination of over worked the explanobabble for scriving and under developed the efforts to integrate economics politics war compared to Bennett s usual sophisticated and emotionally complex stories It s not that I wouldn t recommend it as much as it wasn t as awesome as I know he s capable of do I sound like a teacher or what In his end notes he remarks that this was the work that most changed from start to finish I d say it might be time to go back to his original advisors It felt a little like The Lies of Locke Lamora and a little bit like Mistborn so if those appealed to you I d recommend it Many many thanks to Kathleen uinlan at Crown Archetype

review Foundryside 103 Robert Jackson Bennett Ò 3 free download characters Foundryside Sancia Grado is a thief and a damn good one And her latest target a heavily guarded warehouse on Tevanne’s docks is nothing her uniue abilities can’t handle But unbeknownst to her Sancia’s been sent to steal an artifact of unimaginable power an object that could revolutionize the magical technology known as scriving The Merchant Houses who control. Why do authors keep including a scene where a son looks at his mom and thinks she was StIlL beautiful bUt she was also looking her ageAre sons this obsessed about the wrinkles of their mom and I don t know about it Is this a thing I think notI m so torn I really thought I was going to give this book 5 stars after I had heard so many people compare the magic system to some of the ones created by Brandon Sanderson and mehYes the magic system was uniue and complex The story and characters were okay The talking key was awesome but I overall lost interest throughout the book and struggled to finish I enjoyed it enough to continue the series and I m crossing my fingers I ll enjoy book 2
