Kalimpura is a very good fantasy book. I’m not entirely sure it’s quite as good as Endurance, but it reaches a pleasing point of balance in Green’s life. With all she’s been through, she deserves the satisfaction in seeing her children grow up.

Synopsis

This sequel to Jay Lake's Green and Endurance takes Green back to the city of Kalimpura and the service of the Lily Goddess.

Green is hounded by the gods of Copper Downs and the gods of Kalimpura, who have laid claim to her and her children. She never wanted to be a conduit for the supernatural, but when she killed the Immortal Duke and created the Ox god with the power she released, she came to their notice.
Now she has sworn to retrieve the two girls taken hostage by the Bittern Court, one of Kalimpura's rival guilds. But the Temple of the Lily Goddess is playing politics with her life.
