City of Stairs by Robert Jackson Bennett

However, I also had problems with pace, meandering and infodumping.

This kinda of remembered me of Sanderson's Mistborn. Overall, it's a more mature Mistborn.
This means the politics and intrigue are better and deeper, there's sex and swe

Lanko’s last review of the year
it was amazing
One of the best books about, for lack of a better expression, how life and the world work, the importance of image and perception and being smart in general.
Centuries later we see people, society and their perception and judgment didn't really change that much at all.
Better yet it's written, how can I say, positively, without the cynicism of say, The Prince or other books who try to do the same.
