Samenvatting

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.

Recensie(s)

It was a treat to return to Chakraborty's richly drawn world. [...] engaging, satisfying, and left me looking forward to what comes next. --The Speculative Shelf Chakraborty manages what many epic fantasy writers have never achieved: a world where everyone can see themselves not only mirrored, but powerful. --New York Journal of Books [The Kingdom of Copper] is epic fantasy that is shrunk to the perspective of the individual. If you're looking for a compelling, heart-rending drama that just happens to also be one of the most thought-provoking epic fantasies to come out in a long time, look no further. --BookPage With a richly immersive setting and featuring complex familial, religious, and racial ties and divides, Chakraborty's second book in the trilogy wraps readers in a lush and magical story that takes over all the senses. --Library Journal (starred review) With gorgeous world building, compelling characters, and clashing schemes, the second in Chakraborty's Daevabad trilogy will thrill her many fans. --Booklist (starred review) Chakraborty plunges right back into the action set up in The City of Brass [...] This intriguing fantasy series appears to be well on its way to an exciting conclusion. --Publishers Weekly (starred review) The second installment of Chakraborty's stunningly rendered Middle Eastern fantasy trilogy...As good or better than its predecessor: promise impressively fulfilled. --Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
