Overview


War. Fire. Destruction. Xhea believed that the Lower City had weathered the worst of its troubles—that their only remaining fight would be the struggle to rebuild before winter. She was wrong.

Now her home is under attack from an unexpected source. The Central Spire, the City’s greatest power, is intent on destroying the heart of the magical entity that resides beneath the Lower City’s streets. The people on the ground have three days to evacuate—or else.

With nowhere to go and time running out, Xhea and the Radiant ghost Shai attempt to rally a defense. Yet with the Spire’s wrath upon them, nothing—not their combined magic, nor their unexpected allies—may be strong enough to protect them from the power of the City.

From Nebula Award–nominated author Karina Sumner-Smith, Towers Fall is a fantastic climax to this amazing and thought-provoking trilogy.

Publishers Weekly
11/16/2015
In this strong culmination of author Sumner-Smith's Towers Trilogy (following Defiant), the dark magic of living woman Xhea and the bright magic of ghostly Shai must be brought into balance in order to save their futuristic home from destruction. The Central Spire has given the residents of the Lower City an ultimatum: leave the relative safety of the city, or die. The citizens of the Lower City are poverty-stricken and devoid of any substantial magic (bright or dark); they represent no significant threat to the power of the Spire. What does the Spire fear so much that it would change a stable social dynamic? Sumner-Smith powerfully portrays a world of duality and dichotomy through characters brimming with strength, determination, and self-sacrifice. Agent: Sara Megibow, KT Literary. (Nov.)
