June Books 11) Two Serpents Rise, by Max Gladstone

The previous book in the series, Three Parts Dead, was included in last year's Hugo voter package. I confess that I may have bounced off this one a bit more; I couldn't remember much about the previous book, and though I appreciated the baroque detail of the setting, I wasn't particularly excited by the relationships between the characters (and found rhe central father-son narrative particularly unconvincing).
