Iron Council

China Miéville has swiftly established himself amongst those in the know as one of the new writers to watch out for. His first book to feature New Crobuzon, Perdido Street Station, blew me away; his prose is beautiful and his descriptions so vibrant you feel you can see, smell and taste the surroundings (although in some parts of New Crobuzon you may not want to!).

Never afraid to tackle serious issues, with Iron Council Miéville goes for an unabashedly political story; New Crobuzon has been coerced by its autocratic rulers into a war with Tesh which the inhabitants didn't want. Resentment against the authorities is growing and rebellion is in the air on the festering streets. Strong stuff from an Arthur C Clarke award winner and one of Britain's best new fantasy voices.

Macmillan, paperback, 400 pages, published July 2005
