Kingdom of Copper | S A Chakraborty
143 posts | 128 read | 4 reading | 94 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.

⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ This series, the author‘s homage to the medieval Islamic world, is incredible. I loved this second part of the series & can‘t wait to see where book 3 takes us.
So much happened & changed & surprised in this one it‘s impossible for me to really review it without giving too much away. The multiple points of view added a lot to this one, and it was expertly constructed. Very, very good.

tokorowilliamwallace One of these days I'll get the memoirs and biographies of Lawrence of Arabia! I've been meaning to! Just got a book from the 80s by Laurie Devine called Saudi thrifting a couple of days ago (got a few hardback older books). And I still have James Clavell's 1400-page Whirlwind set among the Iranian Revolution of 1979 to work through. 1mo

I finished this second book in the Daevabad trilogy on audiobook. Great use of Middle Eastern folklore in the world-building!

This was an audio read for me and I‘ve decided to check out a physical copy for book 3. I couldn‘t follow along well enough listening to it. There‘s much political posturing in this book and I find I don‘t like the character of Nahri or Ali at the moment. Maybe it‘s the audio but they act like spoiled children. The premise is still amazing and I do like the story perhaps not audio though.

LazyOwl I find I sometimes have completely different opinions of a book when I read the print instead of listen to the audio. Hope you enjoy the print more. I really enjoyed this series. 8mo

So glad I finally finished this. I was savoring it, but I got to a point where I just needed to finish. I wish I had the next book already, but alas I‘ll need to wait at least a week to get it from the library.

This sequel was so good! It definitely didn‘t suffer from second story syndrome. I‘m definitely interested to see what how this journey is going to end.

I was unable to settle with my previous read, but it‘s basically just because I really wanted to read this book. I was trying to wait until February, but just couldn‘t.

I‘m a little less than halfway through this one, but I‘m loving it!

I love this series. I don‘t have much experience with the traditional Middle Eastern folklore, but the glossary/description pages at the beginning and the end do a good job of explaining the pertinent language. The story is both entertaining and engaging. I can‘t wait to read the last book of the trilogy.

Just finished binge-reading this one. I loved how Chakraborty was able to weave together each of the different storylines beautifully and seamlessly. I am also excited to read book 3 to see what happens after that ending! Honestly, Chakraborty has become an author to watch for me and I highly recommend reading her books.

🍁 I'm loving all the fall colors creeping into our neighborhood. I love it when the trees turn orange, gold, and red.
🍁 I'm thankful for my family here at home. They are sweet and love to read too.
🍁 I loved my last read! It's about a powerful djinn healer still learning her powers in a magical, treacherous kingdom.

Thanks for the tag, @Hazel2019 😊

I‘ve been in a reading slump lately, and this book was hard to get into at first because all of my favorite characters were scattered. But things started coming together and I never found myself glazing over, which often happens when i‘m in a slump. Great sequel to an even better first book. I‘m looking forward to getting the third in this trilogy!

I've been trying more lately to appreciate the little things, like having the privilege of time and attention to get lost in a good fantasy series or to get excited about a new baby leaf on one of my plants 🌱

This book is the second in the series and while it did have some poorly paced slow sections, when the action and POVs all came together it was so gripping! I love these characters and can't wait to see how their story ends in book three.

Warning: self-indulgent whining to follow...My ankle still hurts and I‘m exhausted from being stressed out about making sure my bookstore makes it through these weird times (trial by fire becoming a co-owner of a small business this year). All I want to do today is lay in this hammock and read.

I adored this book. The writing is incredible. The characters are all complex and interesting. The settings are immaculate.

So much happens but it‘s easy to grasp and nothing happens how I expected it to. Talk about being on the edge of my seat to see what‘s going to happen next!

With one book left in the trilogy (next month!!!), I can already say this series is a new top five favorite. I love everything about these books. I repeat: I love them.

Finally done with this book after... 26 (!!!!) days. I can‘t remember the last time it took me so long to read something. War and Peace, probably. 😅 it‘s not the book, it‘s definitely me and everything going on. While it was kind of a slow first half (again, could have been me), it picked up.

Anyone else finding it REALLY hard to focus on reading? I wish I could lose myself in a book more than anything.

Bette Really hard to focus on reading and I really want to. Escape would be nice right now. 2y

Really strong follow-up to City of Brass... I love this world and the characters, the writing is strong, and the action and political intrigue don‘t let up. I didn‘t quite love it as much as the first book, and I think that‘s likely due to not enough Dara/Nahri togetherness. ❤️

Very much looking forward to the third book in June!

I forgot to post my #WeeklyForecast, but if I had remembered, this would be the only book in it, since I read it in both audio and print. I really enjoyed being back in this world, even though it took me a little while to get into it (I had to find a recap of the first book). Now the wait begins for the third book, and hopefully it won‘t be too long 🤞

Kalalalatja @Cinfhen I hope so, too 🤞 it is at the center for rape victims where I was for 4 months last year. And I haven‘t been very happy in my current job, so I‘m sure it will be an improvement. Plus, it is literally just two minutes away from my apartment, so I‘ll get a lot more time on my hands, when I don‘t have to drive 1,5 hours each way every day! 2y
Suet624 1.5 hours each way!!! Nope. So glad you found a job closer to home. Seems like lots of folks are switching jobs. Hope you enjoy it. 2y
Cinfhen My son just started a new job ( not necessarily by choice ☹️) and he also has a terrible commute 😢😢I‘m SO GLAD you found something closer to home and a place where you‘re already familiar ❤️ 2y
Kalalalatja @Cinfhen oh, that doesn‘t sound great! 👎 I hope he‘ll be able to use this job as a step toward getting something better 🤞 @Suet624 the only good thing about it, was that I had a lit of audiobook time. But I‘m looking forward to sleeping longer and having more time at home! 2y
Centique All the best for the new job! 💕 And @Cinfhen I hope your son‘s job improves - such a long commute 😬 2y
Cinfhen Ugh, it‘s terrible to know your child is miserable and there‘s nothing you can do besides offering platitudes, which frankly he doesn‘t want to hear. But, that‘s part of growing @Centique @Kalalalatja hopefully this is just a small blip on the bigger journey 💕💕💕 2y

The storytelling takes you through political courts & palaces of magic where warring tribes fight a powerful, tyrant King. Nahri is struggling to find her place & work for the good of the people of Daevabad. The story follows Nahri, Ali & Dara as war threatens a fragile peace. I am loving this series. This is becoming a fast favourite, only have to wait till the end of February for the last in the triology 'The Empire of Gold'

People ask me why I don't drive and the answer is always simply because then I wouldn't be able to read on journeys. I know there are audio books but being interupted by the satnav would drive me nuts. I'm on the train right now going to see my parents for a few days & I get 2hrs of uninterrupted reading. Loving this series & had to dive straight into the second book which is not disappointing

#ReadingCommuter #books #BookNerd #ReadABook #Prisma

julesG I like audiobooks in the car for journeys where I don't need the SatNav, or I turn it to mute because it is in my peripheral vision. And the SatNav has nothing on my Bluetooth headphones shouting at me "battery low". 2y
