Return to Daevabad in the spellbinding seuel to THE CITY OF BRASSNahri’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 uickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive thereNow with Daevabad entrenched in the dark aftermath of the battle that saw Dara slain at Prince Ali’s hand Nahri must forge a new path for herself without the 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 reviewThe seuel 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 after Darayavahoush’s ‘death’ Alizaydi al ahtani’s possession by the marid and subseuent exile and Nahri’s political arranged marriage to the crowned prince of DaevabadIn The Kingdom of Copper we witness each of these characters embark on a journey uite unlike anything they’ve ever experienced before Nahri finds herself surrounded with strangers her previous allies Ali and Dara nowhere to be found For five years she must navigate royal life and the palace alone Although her relationship with her husband Muntadhir is cordial Nahri nevertheless feels utterly alone With nobody but her mentor by her side she continues to practice healing as best as she canAlizayd al ahtani builds for himself a life in exile in the barren lands of Bir Nabat With his newfound abilities with water Ali can play an especially useful role in the sustenance of his new home He forms new alliances new friendships and has become comfortable in this new found lifeDarayavahoush has been brought back to life by Manizheh much to his dismay in a physical form that he is enraged by Manizheh is laying down plans to take back Daevabad and restore the Daeva tribe to its original glory with the Nahids at its head Dara reverts back to his old role as a dutiful warrior and is forced to face his past while making decisions about his futureThe City of Brass is a sweeping epic fantasy chock full of djinn and mythical creatures lavish world building political intrigue a romance fraught with tension and characters you will grow deeply attached to What The City of Brass did best believe it or not this seuel does even betterThe world building is switched up two notches as we get to see characters albeit minor ones from other tribes Scenes such as feasts and festivals allow the reader to see short but detailed glimpses of these other tribes’ cultures and customs while minor characters are introduced that are not from the Daeva or Geziri tribes We encountered some mythical creatures such as rivers that turn into serpents and winged reptiles but we see even There is far magic in this book than there was in the first one including elemental magic at the hands of Ali and Nahri’s strange bond with the Nahid palace as well as Dara’s new physical form The history of Daevabad and its tribes is further expanded upon The enhancement in the already complex world building makes the reading experience lush and captivatingOne of this series’s absolute defining points is its foundational emphasis on politics Daevabad is a ‘melting pot’ of a city but it far from embraces the diversity within its walls The shafit half djinn half human are brutally oppressed and the royal family’s bloody history with the Daeva tribe doesn’t help either There are prejudices among the different tribes towards each other that have lasted centuries The tension between all these factions has always existed in this story
