“The City of Brass is the best adult fantasy I’ve read since The Name of the Wind. It’s stunning and complex and consuming and fantastic. You must read it.”
Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes
“A rich Middle Eastern fantasy…Against [a] syncretic yet nonderivative and totally credible backdrop, Chakraborty has constructed a compelling yarn of personal ambition, power politics, racial and religious tensions, strange magics, and terrifying creatures, culminating in a cataclysmic showdown that few readers will anticipate…Best of all, the narrative feels rounded and complete yet poised to deliver still more. Highly impressive and exceptionally promising.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)
“An opulent masterpiece. Chakraborty's debut is desire-soaked, intrigue-laced, and ripe with so-delicious-you'll-sink-your-teeth-into-it worldbuilding and equally mesmerizing characters. The City of Brass is a must-read.”
Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen
“A richly imagined, stunningly immersive book that takes you into a world of darkly alluring djinn, terrifying monsters and beguiling magic. Subversive and clever in its politics, nothing is quite as it seems in treacherous, seductive Daevabad. Peopled with irresistible characters and steeped in the myths of the Middle East, The City of Brass is a dazzlingly inventive tale, set in a world that feels both familiar and new. You will race to the end of this bold and brilliant debut.”
Ausma Zehanat Khan, award-winning author of the Khattak/Getty mysteries and The Bloodprint

About the 📚: 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 the battle that saw Dara slain at prince Ali’s hand, Nahri must forge a new path for herself.💣
My thoughts💭: I just loved the book two more than book one. It's hilarious & very beautifully written. The day I picked it up, solemnly sweared that I won't put it down before completing it but the huge size made me broke my promise, haha! 🙈 The book started with where it ended in COB💕. KOC is kn the other hand is more enthralling, flabbergasting & more energetic. The superior, inferior world of djinns, the magical lands, the weapons, the amazing characters had my heart. Not one or two but the book is full of amazing characters, yet some were really heart warming, few were weird & crazy. I just couldn't keep the book out of my mind once I picked because definitely it is intriguing🌸 The cover is very gorgeous🙈
🌠What I loved: The world of djinns, magical blood, magical people & the magical unniverse created by the author is so purely magical to read📖 The characters are so well built that at the end of the book you feel pain to leave them. The book started with a power punch. The book proceeds with lovely descriptions💫
It was amongst my anticipated read & I just don't regret💕 Loved the narration, I highly recommend it to people who wanna read an pure, magical YA with whom you can live the content.
What I didn't liked: The book is not meant of beginners, haha! It takes blood & sweat to enjoy it as well🎀 It's unbearably slow at time, which makes you loose interest at times but the plot is too intriguing. .

The Daevabad Trilogy is definitely among the anticipated reads of many.
In a world where people often talks about great fantasies surrounding witches, vampire and others, a woman raised a storm with her books that spins tales surrounding dijnns, dearests, oasis, Nile and magic.
The City of Brass was a major hit among the readers who gulped down the book.
The Kingdom of Copper is the second book in the Daevabad Trilogy.
This book picks up the story where The City of Brass left it. The City of Brass ended in a tragedy and The Kingdom of Copper describes the implications of that tragedy.
Nahri is forced to marry Muntadhir by Ghassan is hell bent on uniting their tribes. Nahri is forced to live a life of a prisoner in her own place. Daevabad took the biggest hit. With the increasing hostility between the Shafits and others the city is torn with violence.
Ali the youngest son of Ghassan is being exiled by his own father who is worried that his youngest would be the one who would revolt against him with the help from the Ayaanle. Escaping from the assassins he finds help from the most unexpected place.
Dara, the great Afshin is once again forced to live in this world. But this time he is saved to serve a greater purpose. To fulfill the dreams of an ambitious and legendary Nahid, Manizheh, Nahri's mother.
The kingdom of Copper has everything a great fantasy demands. From magical creatures to mythological beings, legendary warriors to healers, Cruel Kings to ruthless women. The second book of the Daevabad Trilogy is just brilliant.
The characters evolved a lot. Though we all wanted Dara to return but I would be lying if I say his return didn't disappoint me a little. His character took a little turn and I must admit it wasn't for the best.
Nahri on the other hand became a leader we all wanted her to be. Finally she grew up to be someone who can take a stand for herself.
Ali is still the stubborn and self righteous person. Though I cannot say I didn't like when he hatched which certainly become a bit fruitful.
The plot started at a really slow pace, mostly focusing on the politics of Daevabad but I believe it was necessary for the greater events to take place. Hence the real adrenaline rush was at the end.
The book was definitely a deserving sequel of The City of Brass.
