Editorial Reviews

Review – The Kingdom of Copper PDF

“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))

“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))

“With gorgeous world building, compelling characters, and clashing schemes, the second in Chakraborty’s Daevabad trilogy will thrill her many fans.” (Booklist (starred review))

“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))
The Kingdom of Copper PDF
“No series since George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire has quite captured both palace intrigue and the way that tribal infighting and war hurt the vulnerable the most.” (Paste Magazine)

“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)

“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) The Kingdom of Copper PDF

Review – The Kingdom of Copper PDF

Okay, so this book is probably my biggest disappointment in ages. City of Brass was the best book I read last year–bar none, hands down, etc–and I suppose it’s my own fault for expecting that the sequel would measure up in such a big way. I’m giving the book three stars because the writing is beautiful and Chakraborty does atmosphere and immersion really well, but there were so many things about this book that I just absolutely hated. The Kingdom of Copper PDF

*POSSIBLE SPOILERS AHEAD*

First off, the pacing is slow. I mean, REALLY slow. The action doesn’t happen until the last four or five chapters–chapters which, by the way, are the only reason I’ll probably stick around for the third book–and most of the rest of the story is centered around city politics and public works. If you found the political issues in the last book to be a turn-off, you’re not going to like this one. It took me nearly a week to finish because I kept getting so bored by what was [not] happening in the story.

Then there is Ali. I am so sick of this character, people. I groaned through almost all his chapters in the last book but stuck it out because I was so enamored of Nahri and Dara and I wanted to get to their chapters quickly. In Kingdom of Copper, Ali’s character actually shows a lot of personal growth, but at the bottom of it all he’s still annoying and impulsive and so, so mind-bendingly naive. I haven’t rolled my eyes this much in a long time. The Kingdom of Copper PDF

Why is he being set up as a love interest for Nahri? I got a whiff of it during the last book and was hoping it would go away, but no. NAHRI AND ALI ARE NOT RIGHT FOR EACH OTHER. She is so much more mature and intelligent than he is, and half the time Ali is such a child that their relationship comes off as more brother/sister to me than her relationship with Jamshid! There is no chemistry there, so the idea that he’s the third person in what is now shaping up to be a love triangle is ridiculous. Even Muntadhir is more believable as a rival to Dara for Nahri’s affections, and Muntadhir is in love with another man!

And the story was just so BLEAK. I counted maybe two or three moments of pure, sustained joy in the whole thing. The rest was just people being horrible to one another over and over in a struggle for power. I get that there’s effectively a war going on in Daevabad the whole time, but if you want to engage readers you HAVE to give us a little something. Every single victory for the good guys was followed up directly by something crappy, or some limitation on what little happiness or progress my favorite characters had made. It was suffocating. The Kingdom of Copper PDF

Speaking of suffocating, wtf is going to happen with Dara’s storyline? To me it feels like Chakraborty is leaning toward throwing Nahri and Ali together in the end despite their having no spark together, and then Dara flies off into the wind on his own, where he can be happy blowing sand around the desert or something? My heart hurt for him throughout this whole thing; it’s very difficult for me to believe that in all the years he’d been alive, he couldn’t have recognized Manizheh’s real motives when she set him free? Really? REALLY? 1500 years and he can’t see through some very obvious ethnic cleansing bullsh*t THAT HE HAS BEEN THROUGH EXACTLY BEFORE? Watching him continue to be tortured after all he’s been through already–and then having Nahri turn against him on top of that, made me want to throw the book in the trash. The Kingdom of Copper PDF

Bottom line: as I mentioned, the last few chapters are top-notch in terms of pacing and action. I even liked Ali a little bit, and Nahri uses her Cairo con skills to good advantage. (Dara may also have finally grown a pair, but I’m not holding my breath on that.) It’s worth noting that most of the reason I am so angry at this book is that the first book made me fall deeply in love with the characters, and I hate how the author did them so dirty here. I’m not giving up on the series, but I’m praying this storyline isn’t going to end the way I think it is based on what I’ve inferred from reading Book 2.
