City of Last Chances is a weighty book of around 500 pages, each filled with beautiful, colourful imagery that brings the rich narrative and last cast of characters to life. Adrian Tchaikovsky's intricate world building is astounding: a vibrant city under occupation and on the verge of revolution, with a dark criminal underworld, a rebel resistance movement, and history seeping through every street. Conflict stirs around each corner as the tension escalates. This wasn't a fast-paced read for me – it required intense thought and concentration, focusing on how the complex plot develops and the different strands weave together. A map, character list and details of each faction at the beginning of the book helped to keep me on track. To balance out the underlying political and social commentary, flashes of dark humour and emotion drove the story forward. There's plenty of action, supernatural and murder too. A challenging but rewarding read.
