There's nothing like that feeling of sweet, sweet relief when the follow-up to one of your favorite reads of the last year ends up being just as wonderful. SWEET, SWEET RELIEF, my friends.

Once more, readers return to Daevabad only to find themselves stunned at its unimaginable glory.

And by stunned, I mean absolutely, gobsmacked, mouth open-and-home-to-three-generations of flies stunned.

This was absolutely amazing and a fabulous follow-up to S.A. Chakraborty’s debut, City of Brass.

Nahri is once more the center of attention as she languishes in, at once, the safest and most dangerous place in the world fo

the land whose essence still flowed in her blood and beat in her heart. Cairo, the city she missed so fiercely it took her breath away at times.

I'm gong crazy.
The book is from 3 POV: Nahri, Ali, and Dara.

I personally, don't like multiple POV, i get attracted to one side of the story and get bored when i get to the others pov. but did that happen in this book? NOOOO!
Every single chapter/POV was amazingly interesting! so PACKED AND INTENSE. but when a chapter ends and another one with

I SHOULD'VE WAITED UNTIL BOOK THREE. MY BRAIN IS A MESS. HOW SHANNON WAS ABLE TO SURPASS THE PERFECTION THAT IS THE CITY OF BRASS, IS BEYOND ME. I'll need some time to collect myself before writing a full review because damn, this book.

5 STARS!! Oh wait, I haven’t read it yet. But seriously, book one was amazing. It was so amazing that I read it in 2 days. I went to the bookstore looking for a new read and sat there for over an hour looking at reviews on random books. After being let down numerous times, I finally staggered upon the first book of this series. It sucked me in immediately. Needless to say, I’m really looking forward to book 2.

4.0 out of 5 stars

It took me a little while to sink back into this story, but once I did it was a treat to return to Chakraborty’s richly drawn world. Her prose remains lush, fresh, and infinitely readable. Apart from an explosive finale, the excitement levels were dialed back a bit from the first book and the character building was more centerstage. Since Chakraborty has already established her main trio of characters, she could really focus on fleshing out their motivations and exploring the d

I savored Chakraborty’s first installment of the Daevabad trilogy, City of Brass. When I heard Kingdom of Copper was available for review, I could not wait to jump back in. After a quick catch-up, we move forward 5 years, following our three main characters, Nahri, Ali, and Dara. We get to know each them a bit more deeply as they navigate their way through the political intrigue that has been foisted upon them. What I really enjoyed, though, was the depth to which the secondary characters were a ...more
