A god has died, and it’s up to Tara, first-year associate in the international necromantic firm of Kelethres, Albrecht, and Ao, to bring Him back to life before His city falls apart.Her client is Kos, recently deceased fire god of the city of Alt Coulumb. Without Him, the metropolis’s steam generators will shut down, its trains will cease running, and its four million citizens will riot.Tara’s job: resurrect Kos before chaos sets in. Her only help: Abelard, a chain-smoking priest of the dead god, who’s having an understandable crisis of faith. When Tara and Abelard discover that Kos was murdered, they have to make a case in Alt Coulumb’s courts—and their quest for the truth endangers their partnership, their lives, and Alt Coulumb’s slim hope of survival. Set in a phenomenally built world in which justice is a collective force bestowed on a few, craftsmen fly on lightning bolts, and gargoyles can rule cities, Three Parts Dead introduces readers to an ethical landscape in which the line between right and wrong blurs.

3.5 Review: Three Parts Dead
Been a while since I finished a book, yeah? This one was off to a rough start, and I can't even pinpoint what rubbed me wrong about the first 20% of this. Whatever, once they actually start working the case, it's all pretty great. Both the ambitious young recent graduate, and the disillusioned men...

The world of Tara Abernathy sucked me in and kept me up much, much too late. I want to re-read before I post more extensive thoughts about the mission to resurrect dead god Kos in the world of Alt Coulomb. But as often happens, Three Parts Dead needs to go back to the library for a bit before I w...

I liked this a lot, and the worldbuilding and magic system really worked for me. I found the pace kind of slow sometimes, but in general, very much enjoyed this.
