Mirah Bolender's fast-paced, adventure fantasy debut, City of Broken Magic, features a bomb squad that defuses magic weapons. io9-New Sci-Fi and Fantasy Books You Need to Put on Your Radar for Fall Five hundred years ago, magi created a weapon they couldn't control. An infestation that ate magic-and anything else it came into contact with. Enemies and allies were equally filling. Only an elite team of non-magical humans, known as sweepers, can defuse and dispose of infestations before they spread. Most die before they finish training. Laura, a new team member, has stayed alive longer than most. Now, she's the last-and only-sweeper standing between the city and a massive infestation.

Professional reviews

"This urban fantasy has a unique concept: A magical infestation eats the world, and only a few brave souls can stand against it. Narrator Natalie Naudus's beautiful, rich voice gives a lot of animation to the characters through the dialogue. Although her voice is equally lovely during the narrative, it's so fluid and soothing that the narrative needs more inflection. Her pacing through the story is on point, especially during the action scenes, where the rise and fall of her speed matches the intensity. Overall, the unusual plot of the novel and Naudus's lovely voice make this an audiobook to note for listeners of the genre. N.H. © AudioFile 2018, Portland, Maine"
