Three Parts Dead by Max Gladstone

Goodreads Storygraph

"A god has died, and it’s up to Tara, first-year associate in the international necromantic firm of Kelethres, Albrecht, and Ao, to bring Him back to life before His city falls apart. Her client is Kos, recently deceased fire god of the city of Alt Coulumb. Without Him, the metropolis’s steam generators will shut down, its trains will cease running, and its four million citizens will riot. Tara’s job: resurrect Kos before chaos sets in. Her only help: Abelard, a chain-smoking priest of the dead god, who’s having an understandable crisis of faith. When Tara and Abelard discover that Kos was murdered, they have to make a case in Alt Coulumb’s courts—and their quest for the truth endangers their partnership, their lives, and Alt Coulumb’s slim hope of survival."

...and so begins Max Gladstone's Craft sequence! So far I've only read the first in the series, but there's a lot here for TLT fans to enjoy: a badass female protagonist; a strange, thoroughly considered fantasy world; a dead god; a nicotinic priest. It's neither so humorous as TLT, nor as heavy as some commonly recommended readalikes (cough cough The Masquerade cough cough) -- it's a nice middle ground. And while there's minimal romance, I understand there are a non-zero number of lesbians in later books in the series. If you enjoyed the less...fanfiction-y elements of TLT or are look for some more trad fantasy to scratch a similar itch, this could be a good fit.
