Publisher's Summary

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" (number-one New York Times best-selling 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.

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.

Breathtaking

I honestly don’t know where to start. This book was written so very well the story is just so great and the twist and turns it took will take your breath away.

Honestly it’s hard to find a book written so well nowadays.

Riveting!

OMG so now I have a book hangover! I'm still thinking about the plot and the characters. This is one of the best audiobooks I've ever listened to. Great narration, fast paced plot and interesting character development. And it's loooong! I love that. I was glad that some reviews mentioned that the book ended on a cliffhanger. It prepared me for the ending. Overall a fabulous experience.

The sequel

The Kingdom of Copper was IMO was not as good as the The City of Brass (book1). I was surprised in the many twists and turns this book offered. The story has revelations more towards the end, but the book was pretty slow until the last 4 hours. By then I didn't want it to end. You must read book 1 before this as it is NOT a stand alone book. Now I wait for book 3.
