In Jade War, the sequel to the World Fantasy Award-winning novel Jade City, the Kaul siblings battle rival clans for honor and control over an Asia-inspired fantasy metropolis. On the island of Kekon, the Kaul family is locked in a violent feud for control of the capital city and the supply of magical jade that endows trained Green Bone warriors with supernatural powers they alone have possessed for hundreds of years. Beyond Kekon's borders, war is brewing. Powerful foreign governments and mercenary criminal kingpins alike turn their eyes on the island nation. Jade, Kekon's most prized resource, could make them rich - or give them the edge they'd need to topple their rivals. Faced with threats on all sides, the Kaul family is forced to form new and dangerous alliances, confront enemies in the darkest streets and the tallest office towers, and put honor aside in order to do whatever it takes to ensure their own survival - and that of all the Green Bones of Kekon. Jade War is the second book of the Green Bone Saga, an epic trilogy about family, honor, and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade. The Green Bone SagaJade CityJade War

i tried. i really tried but the continual exposition and clunky foreshadowing was too distracting. also, while i ~think~ the author might be purposefully pushing her main characters into v. dark territory (intriguing), murdering innocents (WTF?) crosses a line for me, stomping out all sympathy. 🥺 & i can‘t get past when MCs are suddenly stupid for a plot point. 👀 i know this series has mega-acclaim but 🤷🏻‍♀️ it‘s not the series for me.

starting this tome, second in the series. Jade City was really something so i expect similar gut-wrenching tribulations for the Kaul family here! 😧

Hilo, Shae, Anden, Wen, Bero, Mudt, and the rest are back. I‘ll admit to liking Jade City a bit better, but Jade War was more expansive. The clan travels overseas (Anden) and there‘s even more political wrangling. Jade and shine still play a huge role as well. Lee is great at world building and creating a complex but believable empire for her characters to maneuver around in. Jade Legacy should be interesting when it‘s released!

What a phenomenal follow-up! It was incredibly refreshing to see issues of post-colonization sovereignty & diaspora grappled with in an epic fantasy. An epic fantasy with heart-wrenching characters like the Kauls (especially Hilo 😭💔), & a stunning world like Kekon, no less. The plot moved a little fast, but all in all this is an absolutely gripping series with unforgettable characters & a world you‘ll never want to leave. ★★★★☆.

Fonda weaves together an impressive amount of threads to create a rich and colourful tapistry of a story. A tale of family and honour, gangsters and power, following one‘s heart and finding one‘s place, Jade War will leave you satisfied in ways you never knew possible... and wanting more with every chapter.

I‘m not sure there‘s anything better than getting a book signed and personalized!

Got a visit from a favourite author at the store today (she‘s in town and came by to sign our stock of her books). Fonda is amazing as a person and an author. She even brought me an ARC of her newest book (due out July 23)!
