Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: "The sequel to S. A. Chakraborty's brilliantly imagined fantasy The City of Brass, which #1 New York Times bestelling author Sabaa Tahir called "the best adult fantasy I've read since The Name of the Wind", in which a young con artist drawn into the kingdom of the djinn must navigate her way through their dangerous world of magic, court politics, and ever-shifting alliances"-- Provided by publisher.

    *Starred Review* Following The City of Brass (2017), Dara has been resurrected, and he is more powerful than ever; prince Ali—banned from Daevabad—discovers his new water abilities; and Nahri has married Ali's brother, the heir apparent of Daevabad, in exchange for a generous dowry. As these three story lines converge, the city of Daevabad remains the crux of conflict. Tensions run high between the pure-bloods and abused half-bloods, and the king maintains "peace" by oppressing those who have already suffered the most. Everyone has ideas about how to fix the city, and as they attempt to do so all at once, the story spirals into a Game of Thrones­–like tale of political intrigue and war, with many shrewd factions vying for power. Chakraborty's deeply thought-out system of race relations and clashing classes mirrors real-world conflicts, making it all the more captivating—and frustrating—as the dream of peace grows more futile. The action scenes—vivid, entrancing, terrifying—will keep readers riveted, especially as enemies shift to allies, allies to friends, friends to enemies. With gorgeous world building, compelling characters, and clashing schemes, the second in Chakraborty's Daevabad trilogy will thrill her many fans. Copyright 2018 Booklist Reviews.
