I find myself wishing I'd re-read Mieville's other books in this series first - as being dropped right back into the world of New Crobuzon and its political intrigues is a bit disconcerting at the moment.

The dual story threads of of Cutter and Ori are compelling, but I was impatient to see how/when/where they intersect. The meeting was satisfying, if complicated.

Coming back several months later to finish off the review - definitely worth the read, but probably won't be re-reading until I'm ready to tackle the entire series again.
