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 the battle that saw Dara slain at Prince Ali’s hand, Nahri must forge a new path for herself, without the protection of the guardian who stole her heart or the counsel of the prince she considered a friend. 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.
And 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.
Return to Daevabad in the spellbinding sequel to THE CITY OF BRASS.
Dead. I am dead. This book is glory incarnate and where other second books in series come to cry in shame at its altar. I loved it even more than the first book!
There are so many emotional rollercoasters in this and basically anything I can say would be a spoiler so just: READ THIS SERIES.
Nahri is glorious and wonderful, and I love her. The boys vary as to who I love most / want to kill most throughout the book, which is one reason I love it, but safe to say there are a couple of characters who I consistently hated!! One I cannot WAIT to get The Empire of Gold for, so I can see how they hopefully get torn down by Nahri being a full on fury-imbued bad ass.
Such a good ending but oh wow I need more so bad. Is The Empire of Gold out yet?????? I feel S A Chakraborty is going to be a complete auto buy author for me.
Buy The Kingdom of Copper from Amazon UK.
