Kingdom of Copper
Kingdom of Copper | S A Chakraborty
101 posts | 66 read | 2 reading | 62 to read
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 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 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, adrift on the unforgiving copper sands of his ancestral land, he is forced to rely on the frightening abilities the marid--the unpredictable water spirits--have gifted him. But in doing so, he threatens to unearth 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 celebrations, 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 trapped between worlds, torn between a violent duty he can never escape and a peace he fears he will never deserve.

It's hour 15 and I've gotten in a little less reading than I had planned for at this point. That's okay though, plenty of time left!
I'm almost done with KOC and I'll be moving on to Nevernight next. Got in a couple of hours of #wizardsunite and audiobooks with my boys, but it's just too hot to be out all day!
5hrs 44mins logged so far!

I'm going a little out of order here, but here's my hour 6 challenge entry! SFF is the majority of what I read so it's also the majority of my TBR for #24in48
*Kingdom of Copper
*Nevernight
*Sorcery of Thorns
*Dark Witch
I do have a few ebooks and audiobooks lined up that are not SFF if I get through these.

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.

8little_paws Ughhhh I refuse to read this series until all 3 are out so I'm dying now 3mo

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.

Mehso-so

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 ⭐️

I cannot say enough about this series!! Its rich descriptive world with history, political intrigue, drama, romance and love all rolled into one.

Its a series that I am sure if I re-read it, I will get so much more from it the second time around.

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

After finishing the first book City of Brass I immediately bought the sequel Kingdom of Copper. And oh man what a treat it was, rich characters, fast paced, and a unique story. If you are looking for a great series pick up Daevabad Trilogy!!

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.

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.
