The Dragons of Babel

The Dragons of Babel Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

 A war-dragon of Babel crashes in the idyllic fields of a post-industrialized Faerie and, dragging himself into the nearest village, declares himself king and makes young Will his lieutenant.  Nightly, he crawls inside the young fey's brain to get a measure of what his subjects think. Forced out of his village, Will travels with female centaur soldiers, witnesses the violent clash of giants, and acquires a surrogate daughter, Esme, who has no knowledge of the past and may be immortal.  

Evacuated to the Tower of Babel--infinitely high, infinitely vulgar, very much like New York City--Will meets the confidence trickster Nat Whilk. Inside the Dread Tower, Will becomes a hero to the homeless living in the tunnels under the city, rises as an underling to a haint politician, meets his one true love-a high-elven woman he dare not aspire to. You've heard of hard SF: This is hard fantasy from a master of the form.

Synopsis:

Five-time Hugo Award winner Swanwick delivers a fantasy masterpiece in his sequel to "The Iron Dragon's Daughter." A smart, stark steampunk fantasy. Original and dashing, "The Dragons of Babel" is a breath of fresh air.--"Starlog."
