Product description

From the Inside Flap

S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brass--"the best adult fantasy I've read since The Name of the Wind" (#1 New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir)--conjuring a world where djinn summon flames with the snap of a finger and waters run deep with old magic, where blood can be as dangerous as any spell and a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom.

Nahri's life changed forever the moment she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable, mysterious djinn, during one of her schemes. Whisked away from her home in Cairo, she was thrust into the dazzling royal court of Daevabad--and quickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive there.

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.

Meanwhile, Ali has been exiled for daring to defy his father. Hunted by assassins and adrift on the unforgiving copper sands of his ancestral land, he must rely on the frightening abilities the marid--the unpredictable water spirits--have gifted him. But in doing so, he risks unearthing a terrible secret his family has long kept buried.

And as a new century approaches and the djinn gather within Daevabad's towering brass walls for a great celebration, a threat brews unseen in the desolate north. It's a force that would bring a storm of fire straight to the city's gates . . . and one that seeks the aid of a warrior caught between worlds, torn between a violent duty he can never escape and a peace he fears he will never deserve.

Review

“The second installment of Chakraborty’s stunningly rendered Middle Eastern fantasy trilogy...As good or better than its predecessor: promise impressively fulfilled.” -- Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“Chakraborty plunges right back into the action set up in The City of Brass [...] This intriguing fantasy series appears to be well on its way to an exciting conclusion.” -- Publishers Weekly (starred review)

“With gorgeous world building, compelling characters, and clashing schemes, the second in Chakraborty’s Daevabad trilogy will thrill her many fans.” -- Booklist (starred review)

“With a richly immersive setting and featuring complex familial, religious, and racial ties and divides, Chakraborty’s second book in the trilogy wraps readers in a lush and magical story that takes over all the senses.” -- Library Journal (starred review)

“No series since George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire has quite captured both palace intrigue and the way that tribal infighting and war hurt the vulnerable the most.” -- Paste Magazine

“Chakraborty manages what many epic fantasy writers have never achieved: a world where everyone can see themselves not only mirrored, but powerful.” -- New York Journal of Books

“[The Kingdom of Copper] is epic fantasy that is shrunk to the perspective of the individual. If you’re looking for a compelling, heart-rending drama that just happens to also be one of the most thought-provoking epic fantasies to come out in a long time, look no further.” -- BookPage

“It was a treat to return to Chakraborty’s richly drawn world. [...] engaging, satisfying, and left me looking forward to what comes next.” -- The Speculative Shelf --This text refers to the paperback edition.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a ride this one was!
By Ashwini A. on 22 June 2020
I bought this book back when it had just come out and though I had plans to read it, I held myself off from doing it. Why? Because I wanted to read the whole trilogy in one go. Well, when my request for The Empire of Gold was approved on NetGalley, I knew it was time. So I finally started the trilogy from the start. The review for the first one is right here!

I should warn you going in, this might get spoilery as the review goes on. It is the second book in the trilogy and a lot happens that I just have to talk about, okay? Right, that’s you warned in case you haven’t caught up with this series yet.

So, the book starts with the immediate-ish aftermath of what happened in the first book. Some dead people are brought back, some people are discovering some horrifying things and two people are married against their will. You know, the usual aftermath of a massive cliffhanger. Then we are immediately thrown in five years in the future. Some people have had issues with it and I can see why but for me, personally, I am really glad that it took that leap.

After the political upheaval of the first book, Daevabad needed some time to get to a new normal. Nahri has been learning heaps about her healing and also trying to learn more about her people and how the religion plays into the whole Nahid business. Muntadhir is trying his best to live his life the way he always had, while showing an absolute brat face to the world like usual. Ali is struggling to survive after the mess of the fight at the docks. The less said about Ghassan the better because his only strategy to ‘keep peace’ in Daevabad is to kill people. So yeah.

As far as characters are concerned, my favourite will always be Ali, I think. There’s such growth in the characters in this one, there’s still room to grow but from the first book to this one, Ali and Nahri really flourish as characters. There’s a depth to them that wasn’t quite there before. We also see Dara slowly learning that perhaps there’s not just one side to it to anything and despite that, he doesn’t really have a choice according to him.

There’s politics aplenty in this one and the secrets are just, frankly, bursting forth like a dam breaking. There’s so much action and it’s more tightly packed than the first book which I really appreciated. The secondary characters (Jamshid and Zaynab, I love them with all my heart, okay?) also get more space in this one. There’s a few in particular that I absolutely enjoyed reading about. Relationships were explored in this one too! I love that Dara and Nahri, both have had time to have that weird closure to their intense feelings that were so obviously apparent in the first book. Nahri, in particular, is far more pragmatic than I thought was possible as far as first love goes.

Let’s talk about the Al-Qahtani siblings because god, I just need to! I loved the weird dynamic they had back in the first book but this one showed more depth and feelings and boy, am I weak for siblings in series where they are actually there for each other despite not being the best sibling at times. Ugh, it’s so good!

Overall, I really loved the pacing and the reveals of the book and thank gods I had the next book ready because once you have finished with this one, you are gonna want that next book on hand. While not quite the five star read I was expecting, this is nonetheless a perfect second book, in that, it didn’t suffer the middle book syndrome.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book Review
Reviewed in the United Kingdom on 14 April 2019
The City of Brass was my favourite book last year and I read it multiple times, so I had high expectations for this book, and let me tell you, it did not disappoint! I absolutely adored this book, it was as amazing as The City of Brass and now I will spend all year dying in anticipation for the final book in the trilogy.

If you follow me on my social media then you know how much and how often I fangirl about the first book. I love everything about it, from the characters to the phenomenal world building to the insane plot twists! So I was really nervous about picking up The Kingdom of Copper as I didn’t want to be disappointed. But damn, this book is as amazing as the first and I know I’m going to be rereading both books again and again this year. I just can’t get enough!
Shannon’s writing is amazing and will keep you hooked, wanting to read just one more chapter until you end up staying up all night reading. I literally had to force myself to stop reading and go to bed and even though I actually read the book in January I am still thinking about it a month later. It is intense and so much happens right from the beginning. There’s plenty of political intrigue which I love seeing as it really built up the tension. There are again lots of characters, including Ali’s mum, Hatset and Ali’s new friends. I loved them so much! I really enjoy seeing lots of different characters included in the story as you really get a feel of what it is like living in Daevabad from so many different perspectives. Every character is written so well, even characters we only see for a short period of time, they all have their own secrets, there’s double-crosses and ulterior motives and you can’t trust anyone!

Of course, Ali is my favourite, he’s my cinnamon roll and I will protect him at all costs! He has to deal with his new abilities, thanks to the marid, and spending everyday looking over his shoulder because he was exiled and so as an ex-prince is constantly having to deal with assassins who would love to kill him for the Daevas. But because of his new abilities he has become a valuable member of the geziri tribe out in the desert because of his ability to find water so they protect him. I loved how passionate he is about trying to bring justice to the oppressed shafits but I wish he could learn to be more diplomatic. Shannon is out to destroy my heart with the amount of suffering she puts Alizayd through.

“Alizayd al Qahtani didn’t make it a month with his caravan.”

Let me tell you how much of a badass Nahri is, she has had to live in a very difficult situation, married to someone who she does not wish to be with and she can’t even leave the palace without being punished. Yet she still remains hopeful and does everything within her power to help her people and even try to change their minds about prejudices against the shafits. She decides to build a hospital and employ shafit healers with the help of Alizayd. And she has to battle the king to ensure this happens. She is smart and resourceful and resilient. And she doesn’t back down when the king tries to assert her power. Gahh! I love her so much!

“I need to put some men in their place”

Dara also had a few chapters from his point of view and well, I still don’t like him. Although it will be interesting to see what he does in the next book because of everything that happens at the end of this one. I am also looking forward to seeing more of Fatima, we did see more of her in this book and I really liked her in this. Much more than I did in The City of Brass.

Okay so I could go on forever about how much I love this book and this trilogy, so I’m just going to say that you all need to go read this book! And when you’ve read it, I shall be ready and waiting to fangirl with you!
