The Scar by China Mieville
The Scar

Robert Rijkelijkhuizen, January 1, 2010

The Scar is China Mieville's second story set in the Bas-Lag universe, and continues the theme of struggle against the corrupt and venal government of the city of New Crubazon. This time, however, the protagonist is in exile, her flight taking her to the outlaw, floating polity of Armada, run by sinister yet intriguing characters and forced from one alarming journey to the next by its desperate circumstances. This novel features brilliant characterization, astonishing settings and intriguing alternative technologies.
