Thumbs up for City of Blades by Robert Jackson Bennett. Fantasy.

They are satisfyingly not quite like any other fantasy. I wish I’d written them.
She jumps down and starts walking toward the cliffs, searching for some sign of a Divinity’s passage, or really anything’s passage. She finds nothing. And besides, this region is covered with patrols, any one of which would have noticed a ten-story metal woman walking around with a sword, which is the kind of thing you mention to your CO.
I received this book for free from the publisher in exchange for my honest review.
