    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review1 The City of Brass ★★★★★ “It is time we get some vengeance for what they have done” Friends this was such a phenomenal installment that was such a treat to read This is an own voices Muslim Fantasy series and a historical setting of the early 1800s which barely touches upon the Ottoman Empire And The Kingdom of Copper picks up five years after the events of The City of BrassThis is a story about djinn and magical cities and people being able to harness powers that they don’t fully understand This is also a story about oppression and privilege and the terrible things people are willing to do in the name of pure blood The mixed bloods in this world shafits are treated horribly and without a second thought This book very much mirrors present day and the refugee crisis; people are unable to get food and shelter while others are dying of things that could be easily healed all because of fear prejudices and hatred Our three main characters are all very separated and all living very different lives than when we last saw them in the first installment But they all have also grown tremendously during the five years and now all have very different goals “A threat to a loved one is a effective method of control than weeks of torture” ➽ Nahri gifted healer who is trapped in the royal court of Daevabad and trying to make the best out of an alliance that was forced upon her ➽ Ali djinn prince exiled by his father constantly in fear for his life while also trying to learn his new abilities ➽ Dara one of the best warriors who is watching soldiers being rallied who are willing to do terrible things in the name of peace “Everyone knew about Darayavahoush Nahri They just couldn’t agree if he was a monster or a hero” My biggest complaint about this second installment is how long it took for Dara and Nahri’s storylines to actually meet up Obviously I ship them pretty hard so I was just really disappointed when it took forever for them to even interact with one another especially with what Nahri believes Also as much as I love the ueer side characters in this story I’m not entirely sure how I liked how one of them was handled Also I very much thought Ali was going to give us some bisexual representation in this book but it appears that we are just going to get a hetero love triangle which makes me sad But this story was impossible to put down because I was so enthralled on every page I feel like this 600 page book was just completely packed with action and I never wanted it to end I love SA Chakraborty’s writing and I think she really expertly crafts three very different characters with three very different perspectives all of which I completely adored “You don’t stop fighting a war just because you’re losing battle” Overall I really enjoyed this book and the last line of this book will leave you utterly breathless I have such high hopes for book three and fully expect that it’s going to be a perfect conclusion with the way all the threads of this story leave off This is such a beautiful Middle Eastern story that ties in so much of the culture’s folklore in an absolutely beautiful and seamless way I completely recommend this series with my whole heart Blog | Instagram | Twitter | Tumblr | Youtube | Twitch The uotes above were taken from an ARC and are subject to change upon publicationContent and trigger warnings for graphic violence torture death murder slavery human trafficking talk of stillbirth talk of past threat of rape and war themesBuddy read with Jocelyn at Yogi with a Book ❤

    Please note this review contains spoilers for the first book in the series A big thank you to Harper Voyager for sending me a copy for reviewThe seuel to S A Chakraborty’s magnificent The City of Brass largely takes place five years after the events of the first book There’s a prologue at the beginning detailing the immediate aftermath for each of our three main characters However the major bulk of the novel takes place several years after Darayavahoush’s ‘death’ Alizaydi al ahtani’s possession by the marid and subseuent exile and Nahri’s political arranged marriage to the crowned prince of DaevabadIn The Kingdom of Copper we witness each of these characters embark on a journey uite unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before Nahri finds herself surrounded with strangers her previous allies Ali and Dara nowhere to be found For five years she must navigate royal life and the palace alone Although her relationship with her husband Muntadhir is cordial Nahri nevertheless feels utterly alone With nobody but her mentor by her side she continues to practice healing as best as she canAlizayd al ahtani builds for himself a life in exile in the barren lands of Bir Nabat With his newfound abilities with water Ali can play an especially useful role in the sustenance of his new home He forms new alliances new friendships and has become comfortable in this new found lifeDarayavahoush has been brought back to life by Manizheh much to his dismay in a physical form that he is enraged by Manizheh is laying down plans to take back Daevabad and restore the Daeva tribe to its original glory with the Nahids at its head Dara reverts back to his old role as a dutiful warrior and is forced to face his past while making decisions about his futureThe City of Brass is a sweeping epic fantasy chock full of djinn and mythical creatures lavish world building political intrigue a romance fraught with tension and characters you will grow deeply attached to What The City of Brass did best believe it or not this seuel does even betterThe world building is switched up two notches as we get to see characters albeit minor ones from other tribes Scenes such as feasts and festivals allow the reader to see short but detailed glimpses of these other tribes’ cultures and customs while minor characters are introduced that are not from the Daeva or Geziri tribes We encountered some mythical creatures such as rivers that turn into serpents and winged reptiles but we see even There is far magic in this book than there was in the first one including elemental magic at the hands of Ali and Nahri’s strange bond with the Nahid palace as well as Dara’s new physical form The history of Daevabad and its tribes is further expanded upon The enhancement in the already complex world building makes the reading experience lush and captivatingOne of this series’s absolute defining points is its foundational emphasis on politics Daevabad is a ‘melting pot’ of a city but it far from embraces the diversity within its walls The shafit half djinn half human are brutally oppressed and the royal family’s bloody history with the Daeva tribe doesn’t help either There are prejudices among the different tribes towards each other that have lasted centuries The tension between all these factions has always existed in this story but while it simmers and bubbles in the first book this tension transforms and explodes into true action in The Kingdom of Copper With scheming shady tactics stubborn royals rebellious princes and Nahri determined to bring peace in the middle the politics is taken to entirely new levels It’s dangerous Exciting yet often disturbing in its sheer realnessIn fact what makes this seuel so exciting is just how different it is from the first book without ever straying too far from its foundation It never rambles or subverts from the main plot of the series but despite this it seems entirely new especially with regards to its charactersFor example in the first book Nahri is very dependent on Dara as he is her Afshin someone who she knows and trusts in a sea of strangers Her character was inexplicably tied to his almost as if they were a package deal Their bond seemed so vital to the first story that its physical absence in The Kingdom of Copper made me wary – but I need not have been It felt new seeing them in such separate places to the point where Nahri doesn’t even know he’s alive for 90% of the book but you could still sense their deep regard of each other throughout Dara and Nahri don’t interact in this book until much later on and this may discourage readers but I think this decision allowed both characters to become their own people Separating these two also allowed for character development than could have been possible if they had remained a package dealThe book also felt new because it was a lot less Nahri centric than the first book Chakraborty allows her other characters’ arcs and development to take center stage Ali’s inner struggle with his possession by the marid his own moral and religious values clashing with his duties to his family are fully fleshed out in this book His warring loyalties and him coming to terms with what he ultimately values breathes new life into an already multi dimensional nuanced character and I came to appreciate him ten fold in this bookDara’s narrative is especially fascinating because we haven’t seen his perspective beforeIn this new time in his life Dara is forced into a position in the narrative where he has to make a choice between his duty and wanting peace Where the burden of his history and having to repeat his history is placed upon his shoulders It’s hard to watch a character you love make bad decisions but it makes narrative sense And the complexity of these characters’ decisions and your constant “You’re doing the wrong thing but I don’t want to see you get hurt either” is what makes this story so compellingThe side characters such as Ali’s siblings Muntadhir and Zaynab and Jamshid are given time to shine too Their characters have their own internal and external conflicts Ali’s relationship with Muntadhir has pretty much disintegrated and seeing them fight as brothers – be cruel and petty and hurtful – was so exciting We all know and love the main trio but what makes this seuel soar above its predecessor is how much you learn to love these side characters tooThe antagonists in Manizheh and Ghassan were also incredible to watch where they both have horrifying and redeeming ualities It almost reminds me of Game of Thrones in its complexity There are two awful people leading opposite sides of the conflict; so who do you root for? It puts the reader in a strange position where you’re rooting for people on both sides of the conflict and you see two characters you love at each others’ throats willing to do horrible things to each otherI’m incredibly excited for the third book albeit dreading it because it means it’ll be an end to a series I have grown to love and cherish The truth is I could talk forever about why I love this series these characters and this world and it’s hard for me to stop at a suitable place But all I can say is that this series is a gem and it could make its place on the shelf of fantasy greats if people gave it the chance I’m so glad I gave it this chance; it’s been the best reading decision I’ve made in years Connect with me elsewhereBloglovin' ☽ Twitter ☽ Instagram ☽ Tumblr ☽ Facebook

    This was so good Cannot wait for Book 3 “Pragmatic Heartless That’s how you survive in this place It’s how I’ve survived everything” What a fantastic seuel A fantasy full of magic and political intrigue with long held grudges and feuds all coming to a head 3 POVs Nahri Ali and Dara I didn’t love Dara’s chapters all that much but I understood they were crucial to the plot Nahri is married to Muntadhir and hating life Meanwhile Ali’s father runs the show like a dictator controlling everyone and everything At the same time ancient enemies are planning an attack on Daevabad and suddenly everyone’s lives are at risk There is war and violence hatred between brothers This book has pretty much everything you’d need in an epic fantasy novel If you’ve not picked up this series yet then make sure you do

    Can you ever make a new world that properly addresses the wounds of the past? from Lightspeed interview The Kingdom of Copper is the second in SA Chakraborty’s Daevabad Trilogy and it must be trying harder as the first was amazing and this one is at least as good I suppose you might pick this book up and have an entirely fine time reading it but I would not advise it If you have not read the first one The City of Brass jump on your flying carpet and dash off to your local bookstore Oh and could you pick up some lamp oil at the bazaar on your way back? Thanks I suppose you could use one of your wishes to just make it appear but really that would be cheesy It’s like Game of Thrones Yeah you can jump in at some point and catch up bit by bit but really you have to be there from the beginning to get the most from it Ditto here Come back after you have read volume one ok? And if you have already read #1 then Salaam and good evening to you worthy friend Shannon A Chakraborty image from her siteSo when we left our heroes Nahri an orphan of a hustler from Cairo who discovered she had skills is stuck in Daevabad the nominal city of the series title Her buddy of a prince Ali had been banished from the kingdom for opposing his pop the ruthless genocidal king Ghassan and Darayavahoush Dara to you and me a complicated Djinn sort monstrous warrior hottie and decent guy was done in by said Prince Ali although Ali may not have been entirely in charge of himself when it happened There is at least one sand ship that flies through the story and this was the closest image I could find – image from Munin’s sketchblogWe are several years on Nahri is married to Muntadhir Ali’s older brother the heir apparent handsome smart and the epitome of Mr Wrong More of a political alliance than a love match Marry my son or I will start slaughtering your people Well since you put it that way sure Ali is making a life for himself in a desert town using his newfound talent for things aueous to locate underground water or make it appear or something He is reluctant to make too much of a life for himself as he remains the target of occasional assassins and would spare potential family members the discomfort of having to plant him or maybe get caught in the crossfire Dara who we thought was gone is only sort of gone He is brought back from some plane of existence where he was wandering by forces that are less than divine but hey he gets to live a bit so whatev On the other hand Dara is enslaved again made to take on a mission he would probably be happier skipping Mass slaughter is sooo last millennium And he is stuck in a material form he is not thrilled with So a mixed bag All three must contend with not only external hostile forces but internal moral crossroads yeah like Grand Central Station The World of the Daevabad Trilogy – from the author’s siteIn book #1 we alternated between Nahri and Ali’s POV This book adds Dara’s although for far fewer pages than the other two There is overlap of course as combinations of the three engage at diverse points Political intrigue continues to be a major feature here Very GoT as sundry tribal groups even within families vie for influence power and turf Instead of the Seven Kingdoms with their associated Targarians Lannisters and Starks et al there are tribes The Geziri are the current ruling class to which Ali Muntadhir and Ghassan belong Nahri is of the Daeva group Her ancestors used to rule in Daevabad until the Geziris drove them out with extreme prejudice Since you read the first volume you read it right? you know it gets complicated The City of Daevabad image from author’s siteThe motive force for the story in Book #2 Nahri has discovered the remnants of an ancient Nahid hospital in less than wonderful shape and seeks to have it restored so she can expand her work In addition she has learned of non magical healers in the city and looks to join with them to broaden her knowledge base and treat all the city’s residents As one might imagine this notion meets considerable resistance from those in power No not Steve King But with the help of Ali whom she hates by the way for killing Dara Ali had gotten suckered into coming back to the city wondering if he would be slaughtered when he arrived there is some hope of gettin’ ‘er done It takes a village though Others are brought in to the attempt and politics are played Can’t we all just get along?There is a big centennial event planned for the city called Novatetem Mardi Gras on steroids parades floats feasts competitions and well there are folks who are planning some unpleasantness The action accelerates as we get closer and closer the November 1963 moment in Dallas the coming hurricane the ticking bomb You know the deal Michael Bay cum White Walkers cum ILM magnificence and great fun But also with characters you care about trying to make it throughImage by Juan De LaraThere are secrets aplenty double crosses and some pretty neat magical tech Toss in a few nifty large scale monsters for good measure One of the really cool things about the fabulous environment Chakraborty has created is that buildings constructed by the Nahid respond to Nahri who is now the #1 Nahid in the place so is referred to as Banu Nahri e Nahid aka Banu Nahida or Lady Nahri of the Nahid people which comes with perks Pictures on the walls of Nahid buildings animate when she passes Things like that and some that are substantive Pretty cool In addition to the internal struggles with which each of the characters must cope there are broader scale motifs The notion of Occupied People is a strong one in the book In medieval history so many of these cities and civilizations were the products of waves of conuest How does that shape the societies that survive them generations later? How do conueror and conuered influence each other and how do their stories and legends of what happened get transmitted? Can you ever make a new world that properly addresses the wounds of the past? from the Lightspeed interviewImage from ShkyscrapercitycomIt is a major challenge trying to figure out how to make peace with the travesties wrought on the Nahid by the Geziri but also on others by the Nahid How can you step off the eternal wheel of revenge and retribution how can you heal the wounds of the past? In a very concrete way Nahri attempts to do just that Even though she was an impressive healer in book one she was largely an uneducated one But she has been working and studying hard is learning some new tricks and now in a place that seems to act as a booster to her abilities she is becoming an even better doctor But can Nahri in league with others keep the city from descending into the usual cycle of eternal genocidal violence? Can she forgive Ali? Can she survive her crappy shotgun marriage and her psycho genocidal father in law? It takes than an ability to repair bodies to heal a city Chakraborty’s decision to make Nahri a doctor grew out of her own experience I wrote a lot of this while managing a large obstetrics gynecology practice while my husband went to medical school and I really wanted to capture the messy reality of medicine It’s not always glamourous and noble; it can be exhausting the work is bloody and tiresome and challenging and sometimes your patients are terrible It reuires a confidence bordering on arrogance to cut into a person for their own good and I wanted to show how a character might grow into that from the uilltoLive interviewImage by Juan De LaraThere are bits of humor sprinkled throughout My favorite is when a shape shifter with a fondness for turning into a statue cannot get back to normal and Nahri is stuck removing pieces of rock from him “But it’s so peaceful” he pleads There is another LOL scene in which Ali is compelled by his father to taste some impressively appalling dishes from around the kingdom A ref to a hospital room specially designed to keep floating djinn from injuring themselves puts one in mind of a Mary Poppins scene in which characters and furniture dispense with gravity These were delightfulThere are a lot of details to keep track of tribes places words characters Thankfully appendices are provided as are rather broad view maps which I included here My only disappointment with the book was that Dara did not get as much time as the other two the definition of a uibble Image from The Thief of BaghdadI’ve gotta say that volume 2 was a major page turner for me The ARE I read came in at 608 pages and I wished it were longer really oops there goes another wish How many do I have left? The action is almost non stop The characters are seriously engaging There is actual character development Moral considerations are treated seriously There is real content woven into this fantasy world an appreciation for the literary history of Islamic civilization and there is wonderful creativity in the details of magic here The Kingdom of Copper is pretty much all you could possibly wish for in a fantasy read And you don’t even have to use up the limited supply in your special lampReview posted – January 18 2019Publication date – January 22 2019EXTRA STUFFLinks to the author’s personal Twitter and FB pagesInterviews SYFY Wire SA Chakraborty's The City of Brass started out as history fan fiction by Swapna Krishna Shannon Chakraborty didn’t want to be a writer when she grew up “I wanted to be a historian but I’ve been a bookworm since I was a kid” she said She originally wanted to be a historian with a specialization in the Middle East “That plan got a bit derailed for a variety of reasons one of which was graduating in 2008 when the economy collapsed so I figured I’d work while my husband went to medical school and keep my mind occupied with a little world buildinghistorical fan fiction” she explainsIt’s that experience that led Chakraborty who was born raised in New Jersey by blue collar Catholic parents to the seed that became The City of Brass “It sprouted the day I set foot in the rare books library of the American University of Cairo” she explains There she lost herself in the stories and lore around her “As a homesick homework laden and rather wide eyed new Muslim myself I found in these stories a refuge; they spoke of a history that dazzled a faith of breathtaking diversity in which my weird background was nothing new nor particularly noteworthy” The uill to Live The City of Brass – An Interview With S A Chakraborty I come from a pretty big family and always enjoy seeing well done portrayals of complicated messy exasperating and yet also still loving relatives; I think it’s a thing many of us can relate to And I’ve always had a particular fascination with rival princes They’re fairly common in history and yet I can’t imagine the emotions that go behind making a decision to war against your own brotherThere was certainly some inspiration from my own family My twin brother and I are very close and I was very protective of him especially when we were younger even when we were fighting This was definitely an emotion and dynamic that I was trying to capture with Muntadhir and Ali Though my brother isn’t a wealthy libertine playboy destined to rule a shaky kingdom so the similarities end there Pen America On Magic History and Storytelling The PEN Ten with S A Chakraborty by Lily Philpott – an interesting wide ranging chat Lightspeed Magazine Interview SS Chakraborty by Christian A Coleman – Lots of excellent information hereItems of Interest The World of Daevabad on the author’s site Barnes Noble From City to Kingdom SA Chakraborty on Building the Magical World of the Daevabad Trilogy this is credited as BN editors but seems really the author talking about the development of her magical world My review of Book #1 in the Daevabad Trilogy The City of Brass

    199 Kindle sale Feb 21 2020 45 stars Excellent seuel to The City of Brass a near Eastern inspired fantasy I liked it even better than the first book but you do need to read The City of Brass before this one Final review first posted on Fantasy Literature The Kingdom of Copper the second book in SA Chakraborty’s DAEVABAD TRILOGY picks up soon after the ending of the first book The City of Brass Alizayd Ali al ahtani younger son of Ghassan the king of Daevabad has been exiled and is fair game for assassins He's rescued by a raiding party from the drought ridden area of Bir Nabat who have noticed Ali’s newly developed magical ability to summon water Nahri has been forced by Ghassan into a loveless match with his older son Muntadhir the pleasure loving crown prince Darayavahoush the powerful djinn with a long and unspeakably violent past is summoned from his sister’s side in the land of the dead to a new life by Nahri’s outlaw mother Manizheh who controls Dara’s emerald slave ring and has plans to use him for her political takeover of the djinn's city of Daevabad After setting the stage the story jumps forward five years Nahri who has long felt trapped by the royal family finds new inspiration in her plan to restore a long ruined hospital helping the outcast shafit who are of humandjinn mixed blood as well as pureblooded djinn or daeva Ali’s magical affinity for water has brought new life to Bir Nabat changing it from a wasteland to a fruitful place where Ali has found safety and respect But political forces are combining to bring Ali back to Daevabad and into danger And Dara has become Manizheh’s military advisor helping her plan an invasion of Daevabad to retake the city from Ghassan and the Geziri tribe who have controlled it for many yearsIt’s always a pleasant surprise for me when the second book of a series isn’t a let down and I consider The Kingdom of Copper a better book than The City of Brass Most of the confusing elements from the first book have been worked out The plot is far coherent and focused and the pacing has noticeably improved This is just excellent story tellingThe point of view shifts between Nahri Ali and Dara but each of their stories pulled me in and it was easy to see the connection points between the three plot threads and point of view characters Each of these characters has a distinct challenge to overcome in his or her life and in the process uestions who they really are and what they want to achieve It’s not a simple answer in any of their cases Nahri and Ali both have parents who they love but cannot agree with their actions Dara is bound to assist Manizheh with her invasion but has serious reservations about her plansThis complexity of character extends itself to the secondary characters It’s refreshing to see characters that I had dismissed as one dimensional Nahri’s husband Muntadhir is a good example begin to display unexpected depths Ghassan’s tyranny is indisputable but it’s easy to see how his reign began with good intentionsThe related themes of conuest and oppression so prevalent in The City of Brass are explored in some new ways Manizheh considers the city rightly hers but her plans for taking it over begin to look suspiciously like the same methods her enemies used long ago Revenge and violence are poisons that can make you morally indistinguishable from your enemies Nahri’s efforts to rebuild the hospital and to serve shafit as well as Daeva may hold the seeds for cooperation and peace but is it too late? The Kingdom of Copper was both heart wrenching and a pleasure to read It’s certainly not all heavy and downbeat; there are doses of humor and enchanting magic like the palace stairs that rise to help Nahri when she’s fleeing her enemy along with the passageways that magically brick themselves up behind her And it’s easy to root for the three main characters ― even Dara by far the most morally gray of the trio I’m definitely looking forward to the next book even without the cliffhanger ending that promises to be a major game changerInitial post Me at 60% I think I actually like this seuel better than the first book Update YES Yes it is better than the first book Genie djinni Daeva battles FTW I received a free review copy of this book from the publisher through Edelweiss Thank you

    me coming to the realization that I'll have to wait a whole year to know what happens nextSeriously though How date this book end like that? Who does it think it is? What right does it have to leave me hanging on that cliff all by myself???On a composed and serious note this book was so many times better than its predecessor The City of Brass in so many fantastic waysI read The City of Brass in February and while I had some problems with it I actually really enjoyed it One of my main issues with it was that it read very much like a YA novel at times And while I do love YA novels it made these characters seem childish at times With this novel taking place five years after the end of the first and with the stakes having been tremendously raised there was no time for being juvenile hereThis is the book where the characters fully come into themselves and are able to really develop especially Dara While at first I was disappointed when I'd heard that Nahri and Dara didn't interact for the first 90% of the novel I was actually really glad for it Seeing them focused on things other than each other allowed me to see true character development Here we also get to read from Dara's point of view for the first time and it was fascinating to see the world and the war and all that was happening through his eyes His contradicting beliefs and inner conflict when it came to both his and Manizheh's actions definitely added depth to his characterAlso Ali You thought I forgot about him didn't you? Ali has grown so much While I liked him in book one his chapters were a bit on the boring and long winded side but that was part of his personality in a way All he ever talked about was politics in book one In this book we actually get to see some action and emotion out of him and it was so goodAnd all the other characters were great too I also really enjoyed all the minor charcters and their arcs especially Ali's siblings Muntadhir and ZaynabNow there is politics I really enjoyed them in book one although they oftentimes felt a bit overwhelming This book had just the right amount of intrigue and family drama and city politics There was no one right side Everyone is standing in a morally gray area doing what they need for what they believe is their right Everyone believes themselves justified in their cruel actions and their hatred Everyone was eually wrong and yet in a way I could completely see and understand where each of them was coming from To manage such a complex system in a book this big is certainly a talent that S A Chakraborty has clearly masteredAnd that ending I was honestly so stressed for the entire last 20% of this book I was at the edge of my seat wondering what the heck was going to go down So many uestions have been answered in this book And now I have even uestions than ever before I am super excited to see how it's all going to end in Empire of Gold and am only sad that I have to wait a whole year to find outAlso I kinda really ship Dara and Nahri so something better happen in the next book that brings them back togetherOverall I totally recommend this series But be warned book one does drag a bit in the middle and is for the most part little than a very long prologue to this novel And while I clearly suck at convincing you to read it I promise that it was actually uite goodFollow Me Here Too My Blog || Twitter || Bloglovin' || Instagram || Tumblr

    35 stars The Kingdom of Copper was my most anticipated book of 2019 hands down Ever since I finished The City of Brass I couldn’t wait to read this seuel I was counting down the days; my anticipation for this was so high I am so upset that I didn’t love this The second half specifically the last 30% or so was really the redeeming part of this I really really struggled to get through this That’s something I NEVER anticipated I feel like everything I adored in The City of Brass was just nonexistent here Sometimes it hooked me but I was never truly transfixed or captivated while reading this The first book was magical and so engrossing this was missing that I kept reading for the sake of my love for the first book I had to see if this eventually got better And thankfully it did but it took so long to get to that point I should be dying to read the third book but instead I’m left feeling sad that I didn’t love this I’m sincerely hoping the last book turns my feelings for this series around Thoughts before reading———————ME AFTER READING THE LAST LINE OF THE DESCRIPTION UPDATE release date pushed back to January 2019⚰️⚰️⚰️Dying for even a SLIVER of info about this 😩

    This is ten times better than book one I really enjoyed reading this book it was hard for me to put down the writing and characters were matured than the first bookThis book has a five year time jump I didn't mind much it made it easier to understand lots of things The beginning was uite slow but things picked up later The fight scenes were perfectly depictedWorld building and WritingThere is a major improvement in the world building department its way better than that of book one which was none existent The book is written in third person multiple POVs of Nahri Ali and DaraCharactersNahri is matured than before she is even cynical than before due to the incidents in the first book Even at that she a confident young lady she goes for what she believes in and she is so kindAli managed to survive his exile just when things started going well for him trouble strikes again I feel bad for him though In a way he is still as naive and pious as he once was but now he toned it down a bit “You don’t stop fighting a war just because you’re losing battles Alizayd You change tactics Surely that’s a lesson you learned in the Citadel” Dara was an idiot 90% of the book like how could he that is thousands of years old and be that naive He lets Manizheh detects his actions just can't wait for book three And he had gone along had bowed his head in submission to a Nahid again and dismissed the disuiet in his soul Now it had blown up in his faceIt wasn’t even the first time His own history had taught him nothing I also like Jamshid and Muntadhir even though the later was annoying most of the time but he made up for it at the end of the bookview spoiler Jamshid is Nahri's brother they share a mother hide spoiler
