S. A. Chakraborty folytatja a Bronzvárosban megkezdett elsöprő kalandot. Megteremt egy olyan világot, ahol a dzsinnek egyetlen csettintéssel lángokat idéznek, a vizeket pedig áthatja az ősi mágia; ahol a vér ugyanolyan veszélyes lehet, mint bármelyik bűbáj, és egy eszes kairói szélhámos átformálja egy királyság sorsát.

The Daevabad Trilogy is adult fantasy. I think there's plenty of cross-over appeal for YA readers, particularly in The City of Brass, but the main characters are in their twenties.

As a heads up, there is more violence, including a few fairly grim scenes, in The Kingdom of Copper that might not be appropriate for young teens, but I think readers know best what kind of material they want to consume.(less)

While a few things are "resolved," at least one important character's whereabouts and well-being are left unknown. The story ends in the midst of a lot of destruction without waiting for the dust to settle, so to speak. I am definitely waiting hungrily for Book Three!(less)

1.) 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 Brass

The Kingdom of Copper is the second in S.A. 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 sominterviewThe

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 review!

The sequel 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 Qahtani’s possession by the maridseries.

$2.99 Kindle sale, July 13, 2019. 4.5 stars! Excellent sequel to The City of Brass. 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 S.A. Chakraborty’s DAEVABAD TRILOGY, picks up soon after the ending of the first book, The City of Brass. Alizayd (Ali) al Qahtani, younger son of Ghassan, the king of Daevabad, has been exiled and is fair game for assassins. He's rescued by a raiding p/>The
me coming to the realization that I'll have to wait a whole year to know what happens next:

Seriously 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 more composed and serious note, this book was so many times better than its predecessor, The City of Brass, in so many fantastic ways.

I read The City of Brass in February and while I had some problems with it, I actmyself?!?!?!
3.5 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 sequel. I was counting down the days; my anticipation for this was so high. I am so upset that I didn’t love this more... :(

The second half, more 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.

Chakraborty's debut, CITY OF BRASS, was one of my top 10 reads of the year. Kingdom of Copper is without a doubt in my top 5 of 2019. Sprawling and opulent, the world of Daevabad and it's fascinating magical intrigue soars to new heights in this sequel. I continue to cheer for Nahri. Dahra is conflicted and broody as ever, and Ali...Oh Ali. He is my heart. I just want him to be happy *weeps*. Chakraborty pulls every emotional string with this sequel. At its heart, it is a story of family and the ...more

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 more matured than the first book.

This book has a five year time jump, I didn't mind much, it made it easier to understand lots of things. The beginning was quite slow but things picked up later. The fight scenes were perfectly depicted.

S. A. Chakraborty didn't disappoint us again, she's a freaking professional writer, her World she has created is magnificent and we've never read such a well written structure within a book! She really keeps enchanting us with her very beautiful stories, original and interesting topics!
The whole concept of the book is intense and while reading this will be very stressful and intriguing, but in a kind of way you'll love it!

I really enjoyed this one and I am super glad that I have audiobooked both of these as I think the narrator gives a more immersive look at the Egyptian-inspired culture of this world. This is a sequel so I cannot say too much about the plot, but I will say that I thoroughly enjoyed the direction this book took, and although I have some small quibbles with some of the ways that the author acted, I think it's a whole lot of fun to read through too.

I have heard a lot about "The City of Brass" and I also knew about the release of the sequel "Kingdom of Copper". But I was not aware that the review copy of the same will reach to us. I would like to thank Harper Collins India for the same. Frankly speaking, I had my reservations for this book, when I was offered a review copy in exchange for an honest review. There were two reasons for my reservations
1) I haven't read the first part. Many reviewers recommended to read it.

May I present you my first disappointment of 2019!

I don't know how but everything went wrong in this book. When I first read The City of Brass I was enchanted by its magical atmosphere and characters who swept me away into the world of djinn, flying carpets, giant water serpents and enormous talking birds. I loved everything about that world! I had zero doubt The Kingdom of Copper would deliver the same level of grandeur and will, once more, sweep me off my feet. At the end of the

*I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This has not influenced my review.*

It is such a treat to find books that are this detailed and nuanced and feel so real. The writing, the characters, the story, the world building, it all came together so perfectly and was so well done that it felt like I was reading about real people. This was one of those books that legitimately made me forget I was reading. I was just there, fully immersed in the story.

City Of Brass was one of my fav book on 2017, ive waited 1 year and 2 months to be able to read this and maaaaan... it was worthy!! It was woooow so intense and so amazing and so stressful too at the same time!!

The writing style was so enjoyable, love it from page 1 until page 609! i still cant believe this series was a debut from the author, the plot was such a masterpiece and well crafted!

“You don’t stop fighting a war just because you’re losing battles, Alizayd. You change tactis.”

S.A. Chakraborty has done it again. She has created another masterpiece. I knew she was able to create an unique and impressive story because she had already done that in The City of Brass, but she has left me speechless once again with The Kingdom of Copper. I truly believe Chakraborty has taken the fantasy genre to a whole new level with this own voices Muslim trilogy set in Cairo in the 18th century.

I'll make sure to add a review later, but at first glance this book takes everything that was so amazing about the first book and MAKES IT BETTER. What really blew me away about the first book was the complex characters and the dynamics between them, and let me tell you, S.A. CHAKRABORTY DID IT AGAIN! Every character is such a profound mix of good, bad, and everything in-between, and their motivations, emotions, and struggles all struck me as gen

Not to be dramatic, but The Daevabad Trilogy might just be my new all-time favorite book series. The Kingdom of Copper is a worthy successor to The City of Brass in every conceivable way. It took me longer to get through than I expected, but I blame that on my current, distracting life circumstances and not the book itself.

The City of Brass alternated between Nahri and Ali’s perspectives, and The Kingdom of Copper adds Dara’s perspective to the mix. Given that those three are my favorite characters in the series, I w/>The

Warning: don’t read this review if you haven’t read The City of Brass or you’ll be spoiled.


I HATE Manizheh;

I HATE Ghassan;

I HATE what has been done to Dara and how he turned out;

I HATED Muntadhir most of the time (some redemption by the end);

I HATE that I need the third book NOW and that I don’t know how I will manage!

I already know that I will be hyper jealous of all US bloggers able to snatch an ARC (yes yes I know jealousy is a sin but I don’t care)

I ADORE this series with a passion that knows no boundaries.

A lot of sequels in trilogies suffer form what I call "Secondbookitis". This is mostly due to the author setting up for some grand clash or climax in the third book and using the second book to just position characters where they need to be. As you can imagine that leaves the second book without much to do but wait around until the third book starts. Trilogies overall can be excellent but often the second book is the weak link.

This series has lush writing, a magical world, and beautifully flawed characters. Absolutely amazing and addictive. I can’t believe I waited so long to read this series. What I love most about this is how everyone is an antihero...they want to do what is right but continually just FUBAR the hell out of their world. I find myself cheering for all of them even when their goals go against each other. It’s an incredible story that makes you cheer for both sides....or in this case...multiple sides. I ...more

But I'd do it again in a heartbeat because boyy was this book good.

It's a stunning mix of equally breath-taking (sometimes literally) and dangerous magic, and politics (i.e. scheming, revolution and more sc/>

”Are you ready?” Nahri asked when she and Muntadhir were alone.

He laughed as he strapped a wicked-looking sword to his waist. “Not in the slightest. You?”

“God, no.” Nahri grabbed another needle-sharp dagger and flipped it into her sleeve. “Let’s go die.”

I am absolutely fucking speechless right now. Very rarely in my life have I ever enjoyed the sequel of something more than its predecessor. Captain America: Winter Soldier, Percy Jackson and the Battle of the Labyrinth, Gregor and the Curse of the Warmbloods, Toy Sto
