(So readers will have to be a little patient, but I promise I'm giving it my full attention and it'll be worth it!) The enmity between the Mountain and No Peak will continue, but there will also be new threats to the clans; you'll get to see other parts of the world impacted by jade, and international rivals will emerge to challenge the Green Bones. I guarantee there'll be more scheming, betrayal, vengeance, and bloody jade-enhanced fights. The story will remain centered on the Kaul family, however; that's a strong part of my vision for the trilogy. (less)

“Expectations are a funny thing,” Wen said. “When you’re born with them, you resent them, fight against them. When you’ve never been given any, you feel the lack of them your whole life.”
Fonda Lee, Jade City

“Screw you, Hilo,” she snapped. “I can kill my ex-boyfriends myself.”
Fonda Lee, Jade City

“The Horn placed his hands on her shoulders, and pulled her close, and laid his cheek against hers. "Heaven help me, Shae," he whispered into her ear. "I'm going to kill them all.”
Fonda Lee, Jade City
