How to Rule an Empire and Get Away with It by K.J. Parker (Sixteen Ways to Defend a Walled City #2)
English | 2020 | Fantasy | ePUB | 2.5 MB
In this epic fantasy novel, an acclaimed playwright and a terrible liar might be the hope of an empire when he’s compelled to take on a role that will grant him fame, fortune, and immortality . . . if it doesn’t kill him first.
The City may be under siege, but everyone still has to make a living. Take Notker, the playwright, actor and impresario. Nobody works harder, even when he’s not working. Thankfully, the good citizens of Classis appreciate an evening at the theatre even when there are large rocks falling out of the sky.
But Notker is a man of many talents, and all the world is, apparently, a stage. It seems that the Empire needs him — or someone who looks a lot like him — for a role that will call for the performance of a lifetime.
