Publisher's Summary

The second book of Terra Ignota, a political SF epic of extraordinary audacity
In a future of near-instantaneous global travel, of abundant provision for the needs of all, a future in which no one living can remember an actual war, a long era of stability threatens to come to an abrupt end.
For known only to a few, the leaders of the great Hives, nations without fixed location, have long conspired to keep the world stable, at the cost of just a little blood. A few secret murders, mathematically planned. So that no faction can ever dominate, and the balance holds. And yet the balance is beginning to give way.
Mycroft Canner, convict, sentenced to wander the globe in service to all, knows more about this conspiracy the than he can ever admit. Carlyle Foster, counselor, sensayer, has secrets as well, and they burden Carlyle beyond description. And both Mycroft and Carlyle are privy to the greatest secret of all: Bridger, the child who can bring inanimate objects to life.
Shot through with astonishing invention, Seven Surrenders is the next movement in one of the great SF epics of our time.

A masterpiece.

For me, a life long lover of the sheer originality and depth that can come out of the SF genre, this will be one of those series that I come back to again and again throughout my life.

An engaging story, fully-fleshed characters, a utterly unique and deep world, and the most complex and directly astounding first-person perspective and thematic presentation style I've read.

Whatever you do next, Madam Palmer, I will be an eager reader for life.

I was slightly disappointed they'd switched narrators between the books, but by an hour in I was already sold on Smith. Make sure you read Too Like the Lightning first!

Wonderful! Possibly the single best series of speculative fiction I've ever read. Utterly different from my other top picks, but definitely jostling for #1.

The change in narrators is jarring, but give yourself time to adjust. Smith brings a nuance to the performance that I don't remember being present in Mays, though both are excellent.
