The second book in the Daevabad Trilogy. I love this series. I would love to know when the 3rd book will be released because multiple storylines ended in cliffhangers. In this one all my favorite main characters are on different sides, with different plans, of varying degrees of danger to the population. Some characters may not be able to come back after their actions. Frustrating,sad, this book went in another direction than the first- loved it.
#summerbookhaul The kid‘s last day of school was Thursday and I am officially the mother of a 6th grader!!! And it was also time to stock the library a little bit more so I did a Barnes & Noble run and got all these goodies!!!! 2 are mine, 1 we will share and the rest are the kids! It looks like it‘s gonna be a good summer. We are starting next week buddy reading Never Caught, which has a young readers edition.
If you want a book where the good guys and bad guys are clearly defined, do not read this book. If you want to read a book full of messy relationships, loyalties, and ‘causes/revenge‘ where the real tragedy is the suffering and loss of the innocent, read this amazing book.
Daevabad Trilogy, book two.
Hard to talk about the plot without giving away spoilers from book one, but the story is told from three perspectives—Nahri, Dara, and Ali. Each are flawed in complex and believable ways, and locked into conflicts that are not entirely of their own doing.
If you enjoy fantasy with lots of realistic history and political intrigue (à la Tolkien) this series is for you.
2/ reading something light or listening to light audiobooks.
3/ I don‘t know — probably beach settings.
4/ The Kingdom of Copper. Look at this cover! https://smile.amazon.com/Kingdom-Copper-Novel-Daevabad-Trilogy-ebook/dp/B076P8TD...

While I loved being back in this world & mythology, & there were strong moments of action, twists, & humor, I do think this suffered a bit from second book syndrome. It honestly almost got boring at times, there were a lot of parts w/characters just having conversations about stuff that‘s happened or will happen, & a LOT of politics. It took a long time to get to the real meat of the story. But still def looking forward to the final book! 3/5 ⭐️
This one was even better than the 1st book. I had a hard time ever putting it down. I love the characters, Nahri, Ali, Dara. There's continuous action, it makes you HAVE to keep reading and turning the pages to find out what will happen next. Tremendous character growth, for all characters involved. I would've liked Dara to have more chapters but if that's the only complaint I have then I'd say that's pretty good.
Another 5 ⭐ for Chakraborty
The Kingdom of Copper is probably the book from my #OWLsreadathon2019 TBR that I'm most looking forward to. I loved The City of Brass so I can't wait to see where this story goes next!
***Whether you're participating in the #readathon or not, what book from your April TBR are most excited to read?***
Well! This gets a big 5⭐️ from me! I love the world building in this, the twisty-turny politics, the back-biting & double crossing (that‘ll be the politics bit!), and you can really sink your teeth into the characters! Even the thoroughly unlikeable characters I loved reading about. You‘ve got to love a well-written despot! As you can see, lots of ‘love‘ for this book (I need a thesaurus, clearly!). Just ‘put out‘ I‘ll have to wait for the finale!
#sickday My husband is finally home, so I've left the boys in his capable hands so I can lie down for a bit. This cold has been a challenge. My body is so sore, and I have not felt like I could focus to read the last couple days! Took some ibuprofen and a muscle relaxant. Hopefully I will not fall asleep. 🤞🏼🤞🏼I'm about 100 pages in, and I've been hoping to feel better to continue this book, so I think I'll try to make a dent in it.
I LOVE the Daevabad series. I love the characters, the emotions, the twists. I love the beautiful writing style and the wonderfully magical world. If you enjoy Islamic mythology, djinns or even just fantasy in general, I strongly recommend reading City of Brass and its sequel, Kingdom of Copper.
Oh I love it when a book I‘ve pre order long ago comes in the post... it‘s always a welcome surprise. Very excited about this one! And seeing as my 2019 intention is to complete some series that I‘ve started...I‘m allowed to read it very soon!
Set in medieval Sahara, Persia, and Arabia, this novel continues The Daevabad Trilogy and the tale of Nahiri, the half-blood djinn who found herself in a magical world. This book picks up in the aftermath where the triple narrative follows Dara, Nahiri, and Ali as they rebuild their lives after having their worlds torn apart. The author does a marvelous job of deepening and expanding the world building.
I will literally take any suggestions and go with it at the moment ......... 😂😂😂😂 Love all these credits!!! Suggestions in the comments pretty please 😘😂😂😂 #fantasy
I loved this book! The first one was good but this one is just, what can I say AMAZING! Nahri and Ali are still my favorites. I‘m sure I have a character crush on Ali haha! There was so many twists, betrayals, and mayhem. I don‘t know how I can stand the wait for the next book! I can‘t wait to read what happens next. S.A. Chakraborty writes flawlessly. I can see Daevabad fully in my imagination because of the way she describes people and places.
I‘m 30% in this book now, and I‘m almost in tears. Chakraborty creates complicated relationships full of conflicting emotions, and I find myself deeply sharing her characters‘ distress. Aspiring to be published someday, this is how I want to write. I want to offer such marvelous heartbreak to my readers. I want to make them feel.
I was so excited to pick this book up and it didn't disappoint!!! I really loved Nari in book 1 and she's still good in this one, but Ali jumped from one of the characters I liked the least to being my favorite. Dara is still being Dara - poor guy. Jamshid and Muntadhir actually got some depth. I can't wait for the last book. #fantasy
I LOVED this follow up to The City of Brass. The prose is beautiful, the characters wonderfully dimensional, and the story full of enough twists and intrigue to keep the reader on the edge of their seat. I miss Daevabad already and cannot wait for the conclusion to the trilogy!
#bookmail from today!!
Hope everyone is having a great Valentine‘s Day if you celebrate. Currently sitting at home with my cat, pizza, wine, chocolate, a book, and Halloween playing in the background.
I adored the first in the Daevabad trilogy and am so thrilled that the second installment is just as twisty, emotional and addictive as its predecessor. Now to wait impatiently for the final installment, due sometime next year!
