The Kingdom of Copper
March 3, 2019 3:09 PM - by S. A. Chakraborty - Subscribe

S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brass, 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. 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....

Is it worth it? Should I continue the story?

If you liked the first one, yes. There were aspects to it that I didn't love, but it definitely was the kind of thing where I would sit down, and then find that I had zipped through like 200 pages of it.

I think my biggest issue is we finally get Dara's pov and he knowingly walks into the exact same trap he did when he was younger. If he was unaware, ok. But he KNOWS he's been through this before and then is easily convinced to do it again.

I liked getting more insight into the ifrit and marids. I hope in the final book to get more of that.

I will be curious to see how she wraps this all up.

Oh and I liked the recipes at the end of the book.
