Description

S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brass - "the best adult fantasy I’ve read since The Name of the Wind" (number-one New York Times best-selling author Sabaa Tahir) - conjuring a world where djinn summon flames with the snap of a finger and waters run deep with old magic; where blood can be dangerous as any spell and a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom.

Nahri’s life changed forever the moment she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable, mysterious djinn, during one of her schemes. Whisked from her home in Cairo, she was thrust into the dazzling royal court of Daevabad - and quickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive there. 

Now, with Daevabad entrenched in the dark aftermath of a devastating battle, Nahri must forge a new path for herself. But even as she embraces her heritage and the power it holds, she knows she’s been trapped in a gilded cage, watched by a king who rules from the throne that once belonged to her family - and one misstep will doom her tribe....

Meanwhile, Ali has been exiled for daring to defy his father. Hunted by assassins, adrift on the unforgiving copper sands of his ancestral land, he is forced to rely on the frightening abilities the marid - the unpredictable water spirits - have gifted him. But in doing so, he threatens to unearth a terrible secret his family has long kept buried.

As a new century approaches and the djinn gather within Daevabad's towering brass walls for celebrations, a threat brews unseen in the desolate North. It’s a force that would bring a storm of fire straight to the city’s gates...and one that seeks the aid of a warrior trapped between worlds, torn between a violent duty he can never escape and a peace he fears he will never deserve.

Entertaining and thought provoking

This started at a run and never stopped. This was both action packed and a great escape book while being thought provoking with its politics and discussions of bigotry and race relations.
And now I wait until January

Plucky

Definitely a set up for book three. Am enjoying it but hoping it will not go past book three. Liked the story, am not particularly impressed by the narrator. She did a super job for the most part, but I am tired of narrators mangling consonants. ‘Didn’t’ is not generally pronounced dinnit yet that seems to be the new normal. All in all I would read more from this author and still listened to a book narrated by this particular narrator.

Great Story

I fell in love with the world that S.A. Chakraborty has created, The City of Brass was a book I could not put down.

This book is also just great but, it stuffers from a bit of bulk in the middle that hurt the experience a bit, but the last 25% of it just grabbed me and would not let go. I can’t wait till the next book!

Amazing.

It won’t be everyone’s cup of tea, especially if they don’t have an open mind, but this story is a beautiful tale that interweaves Islamic history with fantastic stories. I am excited to read thing third book when it’s released. Here’s hoping.

Breathtaking

I honestly don’t know where to start. This book was written so very well the story is just so great and the twist and turns it took will take your breath away.

Honestly it’s hard to find a book written so well nowadays.

My fav new fantasy writer

The detail of Ms.Chakraborty’s conceived world is incredible. You can close your eyes as your listening to Soneeela’s calm voice and imagine yourself walking the streets of Daevabad alongside daevas, shafit and djinn. The politics of Daevabad are also spot on. In war, no one is innocent, yet both sides believe they’re justified in committing horrible atrocities because the other side has committed horrible atrocities. It becomes a bloody, tragic cycle and in the end both sides have equally as much blood on their hands. I like that there’s not a clear cut “good side” and “bad side” in the djinn/shafit/Daeva war, it makes it much more realistic. This is a beautiful work of fantasy, my only complaint is that I have to wait for the next book to find out what happens next because it does end with quite a cliffhanger.

Masterfully written

I usually always want a book I really like to become a movie but not this one. The author has done such a great job of taking you into the unknown and completely believing in this world he created that a movie could never do justice to it. The narrator also does a great job bringing it to life.
At its cutest it is a mix of Aladin with Prince of Persia (yes, the game) and at its best a satire of how humanity has behaved.

A satisfying sequel

I thoroughly enjoyed the narrator and the story. Oftentimes "Book 2" in a trilogy is the weak link of setup from the opening novel that snagged our attention to the resolution in book 3 that ties everything together. That was not my experience with Kingdom of Copper. While it did a great job of furthering character growth and rising tensions for the overarching plotline, it also felt like a grand tale in itself instead of just a middle piece.

So good

I just loved this book so much. I love the complex characters and the slightly complicated storyline. So many people and politics to keep track of made it feel like such a fully fleshed our world. I felt like I was on the edge of my seat for most of the book. I can’t wait for the next one!

Riveting!

OMG so now I have a book hangover! I'm still thinking about the plot and the characters. This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. Great narration, fast paced plot and interesting character development. And it's loooong! I love that. I was glad that some reviews mentioned that the book ended on a cliffhanger. It prepared me for the ending. Overall a fabulous experience.
