Following Perdido Street Station and The Scar, acclaimed author China Miéville returns with his hugely anticipated Del Rey hardcover debut. With a fresh and fantastical band of characters, he carries us back to the decadent squalor of New Crobuzon--this time, decades later. It is a time of wars and revolutions, conflict and intrigue. New Crobuzon is being ripped apart from without and within. War with the shadowy city-state of Tesh and rioting on the streets at home are pushing the teeming city to the brink. A mysterious masked figure spurs strange rebellion, while treachery and violence incubate in unexpected places. In desperation, a small group of renegades escapes from the city and crosses strange and alien continents in the search for a lost hope. In the blood and violence of New Crobuzon's most dangerous hour, there are whispers. It is the time of the iron council. . . . The bold originality that broke Miéville out as a new force of the genre is here once more in Iron Council: the voluminous, lyrical novel that is destined to seal his reputation as perhaps the edgiest mythmaker of the day.… (mere)

    Longshanks: Two somewhat-westerns featuring political unrest and gorgeously unusual aesthetics, neither book reducible to mere fantastic wish-fulfillment.

Very strong 4.5 stars. Very nearly a 5. Many reviews here are saying this is the weakest of the New Crozubon tales but I enjoyed it more the Perdidio St Station and The Scar. The plot seems better paced and driven and I for one did nit miss the long lists of place names from Perdido St Station. Highly recommended. ( )

Much, much better than Perdido Street Station--very interesting and compelling, but also very confusing. I had to go back and reread long passages in the beginning after finally putting everything together towards the end of the book. Mieville's astonishing imagination is hard to keep up with, especially when he invents vocabulary terms that he only uses once and never defines.

The City and the City is by far superior though, ( )

Ohhhh well. I remain interested in this world and the world-building, the whirlwind of ideas and stories, the writing style even when it irritates me. This particular book is just a lot of battle. Preparing for battle, fighting battles, recovering from battle, anticipating future battle... I find it exhausting. I blame a high school translation project of the Gallic wars for using up my lifetime tolerance for battle description.
I'm also realizing more and more differences in the way our minds work, and while that's not a reason to not enjoy an author, it affects my potential joy in these worlds and ideas. ( )

The imagination on display here is amazing. I think I made a mistake not reading Perdido Street Station first, but it was still remarkable. ( )

Son tiempos de revueltas y revoluciones, conflicto e intriga. Nueva Crobuzon está siendo hecha pedazos desde dentro y desde fuera. La guerra con la siniestra ciudad estado de Tesh y los disturbios en las calles están llevando la metrópolis a su fin. En medio de este caos, una misteriosa figura enmascarada alienta una rebelión, mientras la traición y la violencia se incuban en lugares inesperados. En su desesperación, un pequeño grupo de renegados escapa de la ciudad y atraviesa continentes extraños y alienígenas en la búsqueda de una esperanza perdida, una leyenda imperecedera. Es el tiempo de El Consejo de Hierro.

Aside from his high-end prose style, Miéville’s characters, with their conceits and weaknesses abraded as moral choices play themselves out, secure their author’s place among the top-flight novelists of today.
