READ ´ Foundryside Robert Jackson Bennett ↠ 1 READ SUMMARY Foundryside Sancia Grado is a thief and a damn good one And her latest target a heavily guarded warehouse on Tevanne’s docks is nothing her uniue abilities can’t handle But unbeknownst to her Sancia’s been sent to steal an artifact of unimaginable power an object that could revolutionize the magical technology known as scriving The Merchant Houses who control. reads a heist book nicereads a heist book with flawlessly executed worldbuilding a wonderfully diverse cast of characters the two main characters are black expertly written character development and a burgeoning sapphic romance N I C E The first in a brand new series Foundryside introduces a world that is pure molten menace one that feels real enough to have its own passport stamp and arresting enough that even if you wouldn t want to live there you ll doubtless want to visitIn Tevanne four major Merchant houses hold the thread to power looking contemptuously upon those who were poorer in possessions and from whom they exacted the most devastating tithes And there s one thing the Merchants coveted with so much greed scrived artifacts They killed for it fought wars for it wasted fortunes mining for it Scriving is essentially a mountainous violation of reality itself the act of harnessing bits and pieces and fragments of an alphabet left behind by ancient uasi mythical beings called the Hierophants to paint sigils upon mindless objects that convince them to behave like something that they aren t You can persuade a blade to target the weakest part of whatever it s swung at or coax a wooden piece into believing that it was dark stone and thus infallible but a slow trickle of rumors spoke of worse things of scrived people enslaved their minds stolen away so they have no will than stones This is a rich man s fight said Sancia A rich man s game And we re all just pieces on the board to you Every single signpost on the road that started since Sancia Grado was hired to pull off a heist in exchange for an incomprehensibly large amount of money told her this was a very bad idea and she believed them all But survival in Foundryside is measured by the thinnest of margins and for Sancia this was just another hard edge of a hard lifeSancia s particular skillset guaranteed the job would be simple like a dropped stone falling to a lake with scarcely a ripple break in an invisible marauder unseen and unfelt steal a specific object and collect the bounty But her excellently laid scheme soon tears skewed and fraying and the shock of Sancia s discovery a talking key named Clef with a mind of its own wakes her to the truth of her situation an item of such unusual power cannot fall into the wrong hands even though Clef s attitude left a great deal to be desired Curiosity and caution appear to have each other do a draw and Sancia finds herself incapable of moving on until she cracks this mystery open to get to the soft parts hidden insideSancia s new forged plan embroils her into snarls both mortal and magical rushing her unwary into a war that has raged in a time beyond memory and she will need every ally ingenuity can yield her Enter Captain Dandalo a righteous cop with a bee in his bonnet about justice Orso Ignacio a notorious scriver with a foul reputation and even fouler moods and Berenice his sharp and far skilled assistant whom Sancia is absolutely not having a crush on And now you Sancia Grado said Giovanni tying up the sack at all of five foot no inches and a hundred and nothing pounds are going to take them all on He held it out to her grinning Good luck The contours of the plot will undoubtedly feel familiar to genre fans but the author continues to adeptly dress the bones of his premise And dress them And dress them The result is a ravishingly vivid and convincing novel relentlessly erudite and remarkably inventiveFoundryside is a lavishly ambitious novel and it delivers on that ambition Bennett moves through his conceptual tangle with great thoroughness and startling clarity leaving no stone unturned His ability to craft a complex intricate and tightly wound mechanism of a story that brims and bubbles with detail without that information ever seeming tedious or encyclopedic and to skewer modern tropes with a deft but direct hand is enormousReading this book you re always living in action s eye bright and polished The magic in this world is thrumming with restless energy an unfathomable force that makes you feel as though you were part of something It s what makes Foundrisyde an effortlessly charismatic novel The story is always striving and seeking eddying and turning in such slyly unpredictable ways always delighting in some new twist of cleverness some brilliance summoned out of the air that honestly I sometimes laughed out loud at Bennett s ingenuity But it s when he lays all his cards down at last that it becomes soundly devastating Revelations come roaring at the reader as deafening as any explosion louder than the rending of the earth and I drank it all in a daze of fascinated horror The ending opened the chasm of my curiosity even deeper kicking up a storm in my mind the last line setting a nauseating uiver in the marrow of my bonesWhile there is plenty original in the above the success of Foundryside in my opinion lies in the way it becomes a laboratory in which Bennett examines at great length and in cleverly subtle ways the notions of free will freedom of choice and the nature of sentience It s also a masterful critiue of capitalism one that cuts right to the heart of the matter to the essential rottenness of the world Foundryside is a killer story about power corruption and vengeance Tevanne is a world abound with poverty and toil and human terror governed by the currencies of men who owned so much ground but never bent down enough to touch it Their greed was a devouring thing that would gulp down lives with pleasure and would only pretend to care about justice or law Bennett succeeds in making his economic parable unrelentingly engaging and above that frighteningly aslant our own realityThe author also undoubtedly has a keen sense for uniue characters whom he infuses with wit spark and depth deftly capturing the nuances of their personalities so that they unfold along with their gradually changing perspectiveThe primary voices are of three characters Sancia Captain Gregor Dandalo and Orso Ignacio each with the weight of the past hanging still upon them like ocean weed an incessant drag of remorse fear despair Their entanglement however stirred no feeling of kinship only a burn of mistrust They were strangers watching each other with a sort of obseuious wariness The air between them was a dead place as though they trusted their frailty to none but themselves However the charming theatrical curtain eventually drops away slow and steady and devastating and we see each of the characters for the first time as they really areSancia Grado is a young woman destined to be rootless like a seed tossed on the wind staring out windows wistful yearning for a distant unattainable horizon Her ability one that would make thieves gnaw on their miserable envy and those who hire them clamor for her loyalty was like a curse than a blessing Sancia paid for it with scars seamed into the side of her head hideous and crudely sewn and several agonizing memories brushing against her like a burning iron fresh from the fire It s almost a surprise to realize that the atrocious injustices she was made to endure were like a spark falling on dry tinder they were no match for her kindness and good grace Sancia s heart had no talent for grudges She knew how to value friendships and an open hand Nevertheless those who mistook her mildness for yielding always paid a heavy toll It s fair to say that I absolutely loved Sancia s character and I was continuously rooting for her As for Clef the less said about him the better But I will say this if you think I did not almost cry my eyes out because of a character who is literally a key you are gravelly mistakenCaptain Gregor Dandalo fought the men and slayed the monsters and at last the soldier having conuered all earned the thing that he yearned for the most to go home to find civilization So he picked up and dust off the one thing left over his honor alongside a number of inconvenient ideas about justice and returned to Tevanne Only Tevanne was not as civilized as he d liked Now Dandalo is willing to set fire to this whole little world of scoundrelly Merchants even if one of them is his mother and see what grows out of the ashes The need to exact justice was a cold spear point twisting in his guts but he flung his whole weight against it strongly enough to make even Sancia the scion of a crooked city entertain a few wary hopes as well I think he s broken just like you and me notes Clef matter of factly he s just trying to fix the world because it s the only way he knows how to fix himself Gregor s basckstory is to be charitable absolutely heartrending and I suspect the seuel carries an arsenal of nameless horror stillOrso Ignacio is a man of a loathsome reputation blood soaked and angry who now in old age is feeling the debts of his burning youth His hubris greed and tunnel visioned tenacity has scorched him down to the bone and regrets are swelling in him ripening Orso used to work as a hypatus essentially a head of research for Candiano Company before his boss a legendary scriver forgot how to possess his skill and instead let the skill possess him before the Candiano house almost came to dust and smoke and life had never again attained the heights of power that it once held Nonetheless Orso s own ambition never abated the boil of it never calming to a simmer But now the whole poisonous weight of it is coming crashing back down full forceFurther Orso s relationship with Estelle Candiano holds its own fascination as does Estelle s character as the woman who had her father s exceptional talent for scriving but who was repeatedly ignored and cast aside for no reason other than that she was a woman in a business ruled by men who thought the world would fail without them Orso s assistant s Berenice s backstory on the other hand is bare bones but her character is not less riveting I love her permanently amused attitude her tendency to walk around with far too many scrived weapons under her cloths and how the dynamics between her and Orso are less akin to what you d expect from a mentor and his student and like a senile grandfather and his indulgent but slightly irritated granddaughter Also the sheer sapphic vibes emanating from her every interaction with Sancia are the only thing sustaining me until the release of the seuel JusticeGod Why are you doing all this Why are you out here risking your life Is justice such an odd thing to desire Justice is a luxury Overall Foundryside s brisk storytelling bright and chiming prose and dazzling aptitude for fun culminate in one of the strongest fantasy novels that I ve read this year Bennett proves to be a generous author with an
