Publisher's Summary

A city ruled by Gods, a mortal champion, a misfit girl, and a disobedient dragon....

Stolen from his home, Corthie Holdfast has arrived in the City of the Eternal Siege as a new champion.

He must fight alongside the Blades, whose lives are dedicated to the defense of the city against the hordes of monstrous Greenhides; or die at the hands of the Gods who rule.

Maddie Jackdaw, a young Blade, faces her last chance. Thrown out of every unit defending the city, either she takes on a new role, or she will be sent to the Rats, a company of misfits given the perilous tasks beyond the Great Walls.

Her new role, if she takes it, will bring her face to face with her deepest fears, for beneath the walls, in a secret and hidden lair, lies a dragon, imprisoned and waiting....

Unreasonably stupid characters.

The premise, world building, and general delivery of the story are quite good. The narrator is also very good.

The only problem I have with the story is that every character we get as a PoV is makes obviously objectively bad decisions in pretty much every scene they are in. The story is mostly propelled by the blundering of the main characters which I find infuriating
