From the author of Perdido Street Station, an epic and breathtaking fantasy of extraordinary imagination
A colossal fantasy of incredible diversity and spellbinding imagination. A human cargo bound for servitude in exile...
A pirate city hauled across the oceans...
A hidden miracle about be revealed...
These are the ingredients of an astonishing story. It is the story of a prisoner's journey. Of the search for the island of a forgotten people, for the most astonishing beast in the seas, and ultimately for a fabled place - a massive wound in reality, a source of unthinkable power and danger.
