    ARC provided by the publisher via Edelweiss in exchange for an honest review.1.) The City of Brass ★★★★★ “It is time we get some vengeance for what they have done.” Friends, this was such a phenomenal installment that was such a treat to read. This is an own voices Muslim Fantasy series, and a historical setting of the early 1800s, which barely touches upon the Ottoman Empire. And The Kingdom of Copper picks up five years after th...

    Can you ever make a new world that properly addresses the wounds of the past? - from Lightspeed interviewThe Kingdom of Copper is the second in S.A. Chakraborty’s Daevabad Trilogy, and it must be trying harder, as the first was amazing and this one is at least as good. I suppose you might pick this book up and have an entirely fine time reading it, but I would not advise it. If you have not read the first one, The City of Brass, jump on your fl...

    Please note this review contains spoilers for the first book in the series.A big thank you to Harper Voyager for sending me a copy for review!The sequel to S. A. Chakraborty’s magnificent The City of Brass largely takes place five years after the events of the first book. There’s a prologue at the beginning, detailing the immediate aftermath for each of our three main characters. However, the major bulk of the novel takes place several years ...

    4.5 stars! Final review, first posted on Fantasy Literature:The Kingdom of Copper, the second book in S.A. Chakraborty’s DAEVABAD TRILOGY, picks up soon after the ending of the first book, The City of Brass. Alizayd (Ali) al Qahtani, younger son of Ghassan, the king of Daevabad, has been exiled and is fair game for assassins. He's rescued by a raiding party from the drought-ridden area of Bir Nabat, who have noticed Ali’s newly-developed magi...

    4.5 StarsReview:*I received a copy of this book from the publisher. This has not influenced my review.*It is such a treat to find books that are this detailed and nuanced and feel so real. The writing, the characters, the story, the world building, it all came together so perfectly and was so well done that it felt like I was reading about real people. This was one of those books that legitimately made me forget I was reading. I was just there, f...

    The Kingdom of Copper is undoubtedly the best novel I have read this year. The novel is rich in details, politics, religion, culture........ everything.

    **This review now posted on my blog** May I present you my first disappointment of 2019!I don't know how but everything went wrong in this book. When I first read The City of Brass I was enchanted by its magical atmosphere and characters who swept me away into the world of djinn, flying carpets, giant water serpents and enormous talking birds. I loved everything about that world! I had zero doubt The Kingdom of Copper would deliver the same level...

    My favorite book of 2018.I can’t say much about this sequel due to spoilers, but I will say that I felt emotions I’ve never experienced before when reading. I cried. I laughed. I screamed.It brought everything and more.I’m STILL not over it, and it has been over a month.As always, the politics shine through this series starkly and intelligently. Everyone is dancing around each other trying to keep the peace, get their own wishes, and just n...

    4.5 starsI’m obviously not the most experienced at reading or reviewing adult fantasy. But unlike with The City of Brass (which I admit I read somewhat haphazardly), I really put my all into paying attention to The Kingdom of Copper. And you know what? It was so worth it. Even though I remembered basically nothing from book 1 at the beginning of The Kingdom of Copper, somehow I managed to jog my memory as I read the sequel, and it was so subtle...

    ”Are you ready?” Nahri asked when she and Muntadhir were alone.He laughed as he strapped a wicked-looking sword to his waist. “Not in the slightest. You?”“God, no.” Nahri grabbed another needle-sharp dagger and flipped it into her sleeve. “Let’s go die.” I am absolutely fucking speechless right now. Very rarely in my life have I ever enjoyed the sequel of something more than its predecessor. Captain America: Winter Soldier, Perc...

    I received a free review from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.What an epic sequel. I think I was screaming from start to finish as developments unfolded and implications loomed large in the characters' future. Like its predecessor, I wouldn't say this was fast-paced (until the final act; ye gods), but it had me thoroughly engaged by the characters' concerns (except Dara. Sorry, still not TeamDara. How askew can one thrice-dead djin...

    Thank you for Goodreads for choosing me to be a winner of one of the giveaways, which gave me an ARC for The Kingdom of Copper. Don't worry, I pre-ordered the book right when I finished The City of Brass.Chakraborty hit me with all the emotions throughout this entire book. Her writing is spectacular and I love how real her characters are and how we see such vulnerability with all of them. She literally knows how to write these characters and give...

    the land whose essence still flowed in her blood and beat in her heart. Cairo, the city she missed so fiercely it took her breath away at times. CRAZYYYY!I'm gong crazy.The book is from 3 POV: Nahri, Ali, and Dara.I personally, don't like multiple POV, i get attracted to one side of the story and get bored when i get to the others pov. but did that happen in this book? NOOOO!Every single chapter/POV was amazingly interesting! so PACKED AND INTEN...
