In this debut fantasy, the first installment of the Burnished City trilogy, Kirsten Foster has a broad cast of characters to bring to life. Using a variety of accents, she distinguishes characters and their classes in a highly stratified society. The main character, Siyon, yearns to be an alchemist, but he's reaching far above his station. So, using his natural talent, he jumps between planes of existence to gather raw materials to sell to the alchemists. In the process, he makes a discovery that may prove to be the salvation of their world. Foster brings a lot of personality to Siyon, and to the three secondary characters who have wealth and privilege. She establishes a fast pace, contributing to the story's suspense.
