Added DiffLines:

* AntiClimax: an InUniverse example. [[spoiler: Judah's last attempt to save the Council only succeeds in robbing them and their supporters (and the readers) of the apotheosis that they seek.]]


Added DiffLines:

* ShaggyDogStory: Like the other BasLag cycle books, the events of the story don't have much effect on New Crobozon's status quo.

Published in 2004, ''Literature/IronCouncil'' is the latest and perhaps last book of ChinaMieville's [[Literature/BasLagCycle Bas-Lag Cycle]]. ''Iron Council'' is held to be the most [[{{Anvilicious}} politically-charged]] [[AuthorTract installment]] in the series, which all things considered, is somewhat inevitable given the turbulent political climate that the book takes place in.

* Deus ex Machina: [[spoiler: Qurabin is a character who can trade bits of his life experience and memories for information from a mysterious source. Without his intervention, the protagonists would never find the Iron Council (they had no solid leads until then came across Qurabin), and would never have learned the truth about Spiral Jacobs, who was moments from wiping New Crobuzon off the map. ]]

''Iron Council'' is held to be the most [[{{Anvilicious}} politically-charged]] [[AuthorTract installment]] in the series, which all things considered, is somewhat inevitable given the turbulent political climate that the book takes place in.

The main events in the book take place over twenty years after the events of ''PerdidoStreetStation'' and ''Literature/TheScar'', and are not presented in a [[AnachronicOrder strictly chronological order]]. For the first time in the [[{{Literature/Bas-LagCycle}} Bas-Lag Cycle]], the book is narrated by several people, Cutter, Judah and Ori.
