    Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett We?ve been looking for a chance to blurb Robert Jackson Bennett?s fantasy novels since my assistants Peter and Isaac loved City of Stairs when it came out in 2014. Now we have our chance. Bennett?s new novel, Foundryside, releases on Augus...

    The soles of her boots touched earth, and she started to run. No matter the cost, Sancia will do what it takes to survive. She's carved out an existence in one of the most inhospitable places in the city. She's a woman of many hats - thief, liar, plunderer, and more: "But the...

    4.5/5 stars Foundryside was an incredibly addictive and entertaining read from start to finish. I?m a recent fan of Robert Jackson Bennett?s books. Three months ago on the last week of May, I binged read his critically acclaimed trilogy, The Divine Cities, and it became one o...

    Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the few authors I watch out for. Recently, I finished his early award-winning book (Philip K. Dick, Edgar, Anthony), The Company Man so I was very excited at the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of Foundryside, his latest work. Bennett has...

    ?? Shrimpiest Book of the Year Award Nominee! ?? Actual rating: 6.848697 stars. And a half. Okay. So this book is so bloody fishing scrumptious I don't know where to start. By foaming at the mouth maybe? Not a bad idea, actually, that usually works pretty well for me....

    5 fantasy stars to Foundryside! ? ? ? ? ? This was the second of two fantastic fantasy books I was invited to read from Crown Publishing. I am an eclectic reader, and for whatever reason, I do not reach for fantasy as often, but just the same, I tend to savor it when...

    Buddy read with Karishma DNF'd at about 7%. I couldn't. I am absolutely sick of YA female characters written with the extreme "independent" women complex/syndrome. I can't take it anymore. I'm done. Done. YA has ruined the concept of the female character - why should it be a concept...

    Sancia Grado is lonesome thief on the streets of Foundryside. When we enter the book, she's right in the middle of pulling off a job that requires her to steal a small, unassuming box from a safe that's locked up extra tight. Difficult, right? Not for Sancia, partially due to the fa...

    Foundryside (Founders #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett is a book I requested and the review is voluntary. Wow, this is one heck of a book! The character building and world building is just so astounding! The story itself drags me in and I didn't even feel it until I was hopeless trapped a...

    A delightful surprise! I have heard great things about the author - but this is the first book of his I tried. I think this book is a kindred spirit to Sanderson's The Final Empire. I know, it is a high benchmark. But trust me, this is the best comparable for this new release. S...

    Foundryside is a novel that is perpetually combining elements you'd have thought wouldn't be compatible, and yet Robert Jackson Bennet pulls the feat off every time. I was lucky enough to be given an advance reader copy of the book and found it immensely well conceived and executed. ...

    Sometimes I come across a piece of fiction that tickles every single one of my funnybones. As in thoroughly delighting me. Charming me. Making me fall in love. This is one of those. I mean, don't get me wrong, I've LOVED Bennett's City of Stairs books and gushed on and on about t...

    Foundryside (Founders #1) by Robert Jackson Bennett is a book I requested and the review is voluntary. Wow, this is one heck of a book! The character building and world building is just so astounding! The story itself drags me in and I didn't even feel it until I was hopeless trapped a...

    A delightful surprise! I have heard great things about the author - but this is the first book of his I tried. I think this book is a kindred spirit to Sanderson's The Final Empire. I know, it is a high benchmark. But trust me, this is the best comparable for this new release. S...

    Foundryside by Robert Jackson Bennett We?ve been looking for a chance to blurb Robert Jackson Bennett?s fantasy novels since my assistants Peter and Isaac loved City of Stairs when it came out in 2014. Now we have our chance. Bennett?s new novel, Foundryside, releases on Augus...

    The soles of her boots touched earth, and she started to run. No matter the cost, Sancia will do what it takes to survive. She's carved out an existence in one of the most inhospitable places in the city. She's a woman of many hats - thief, liar, plunderer, and more: "But the...

    4.5/5 stars Foundryside was an incredibly addictive and entertaining read from start to finish. I?m a recent fan of Robert Jackson Bennett?s books. Three months ago on the last week of May, I binged read his critically acclaimed trilogy, The Divine Cities, and it became one o...

    Robert Jackson Bennett is one of the few authors I watch out for. Recently, I finished his early award-winning book (Philip K. Dick, Edgar, Anthony), The Company Man so I was very excited at the opportunity to read an advanced reader copy of Foundryside, his latest work. Bennett has...

    ?? Shrimpiest Book of the Year Award Nominee! ?? Actual rating: 6.848697 stars. And a half. Okay. So this book is so bloody fishing scrumptious I don't know where to start. By foaming at the mouth maybe? Not a bad idea, actually, that usually works pretty well for me....

    ARC provided by Crown in exchange for an honest review. ?Foundryside. The closest thing Sancia had to a home.? This is a really hard book for me to rate. The concepts in this book are so unique and creative; I loved them so very much! But some of the banter and conversati...

    So much more than I expected! Fantastic! It didn?t take long to recognize that Robert Jackson Bennett?s Foundryside (Founders #1) was something special. Before this book was offered to me for review, Bennett was not a writer I was familiar with. Now, I?m positive that I?ll be r...

    5 fantasy stars to Foundryside! ? ? ? ? ? This was the second of two fantastic fantasy books I was invited to read from Crown Publishing. I am an eclectic reader, and for whatever reason, I do not reach for fantasy as often, but just the same, I tend to savor it when...

    Robert Jackson Bennett's deserves all of the 5 dazzling stars for this utterly gripping, epic fantasy adventure thriller, that is the first of this hotly anticipated series. Bennett engages in wonderful world building of the city of Tevanne with its 4 powerful family merchant houses an...

    Buddy read with Karishma DNF'd at about 7%. I couldn't. I am absolutely sick of YA female characters written with the extreme "independent" women complex/syndrome. I can't take it anymore. I'm done. Done. YA has ruined the concept of the female character - why should it be a concept...

    Sancia Grado is lonesome thief on the streets of Foundryside. When we enter the book, she's right in the middle of pulling off a job that requires her to steal a small, unassuming box from a safe that's locked up extra tight. Difficult, right? Not for Sancia, partially due to the fa...

    Please note that I'm not an avid reader of adult fantasy novels, so my opinions here might not apply to you as a reader and I highly recommend giving this one a go if you enjoy adult fantasy regularly! I really did enjoy this overall, as a 3 STAR rating is positive on my scale, but ...

    ?Sancia saw the nightscape of Tevanne below her, suddenly rendered in the juddering, jangly tangles of silver scrivings, thousands and thousands and thousands of them, like a dark mountain range covered in tiny candles. She watched in wonder as the scrived bolts hissed through the ai...
