Downum, Amanda -- The Drowning City

Necromancer stumbles (or leaps, since she's also a spy) into politics. This book throws an awful lot of names at you -- people, places, ethnic groups, political factions -- it's all well-built but it's a lot to grab hold of. I wound up liking the sidekicks and secondary characters more than the protagonist, who is supposed to be a badass but isn't really an interesting or active badass.
