The Tangled Lands by Paolo Bacigalupi and Tobias S. Buckell

Khaim, the last city of a once-great empire, clings to life.

This is a world poisoned by its addiction to magic.  Every time a spell is cast, toxic bramble sprouts, bursting forth from tilled fields, thrusting up from between cobblestones.  A bit of magic, and bramble follows until whole cities are consumed by tangling vines.  Armies hack and burn… yet in a world that can’t give up magic’s sweet succour, the bramble can’t be stopped.

When Jeoz the alchemist discovers a potent new weapon to wield against the bramble, his invention promises Khaim freedom from fear and starvation.  But these are twisted times and the bramble is not the only corruption that blights the land.

Peer & Press Reviews

The Tangled Lands has no right to be as good as it is.  Conceptual, morally ambiguous, and incredibly timely, [it] explores well-wrought narratives of feminism and environmental justice in a beautifully crafted fantasy world that drips with rich lore and details at every turn.

The Oberlin Review

Exploring themes of power, corruption, greed and thwarted hope, the authors deliver an absorbing and sensitive fantasy.

Guardian

The two writers do a wonderful job of maintaining the same style, creating a coherent, rounded world peopled with imperfect, believable characters… [it] is well worth the investment.
