I really love how rich this world is when it comes to history, religion and politics, which gives a very good and thought-out reason for all the hostilities, hate and war that is brewing. The reason this is not a five star however is simply because I don’t particularly like the Dara-Nahri-Ali thing that’s going on.

I also feel there is a lot of miscommunications between these three where Dara and Ali (and everyone else if I’m being honest) are giving her information that they want her to know, but not enough for her to actually get a full picture of anything, which again makes her unable to make a fully formed decision without doubting herself. I sincerely hope she doesn't end up in a relationship with either of these two.

Nahri does grow a lot in this book and at the end is clear that she is choosing her own future and making her own decisions, which is really great to see. The ending was very good and we’re left on a cliffhanger before the last book in the trilogy. ( )

Title: The Kingdom of Copper
Author: S.A. Chakraborty

Synopsis:
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, without the protection of the guardian who stole her heart or the counsel of the prince she considered a friend. 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.

Initial thoughts:
Right after finishing the first book I jumped right into this one. I did listen to the audiobook version of this because I knew from the first book that the style works better for me that way. I received this copy early and I am so thankful that I had a chance to read this book so soon after I finished the first one.

Plot:
What I liked:
The world building in this book was my favorite aspect. The political struggle between the shafit, djinn, and the deava is ever growing causing so many more problems than I can even count. And on top of that there is a situation brewing outside of Devabad that could cause everyone’s plans to fall through the cracks. It kept me on the edge of my seat completely as everyone tried to dance around each other.

What I didn't like:
Sometimes the book jumped around a lot and I had trouble keeping track of the timeline, but other than that I really enjoyed this story and how it developed.

Characters:
Nahri: Nahri is still such a strong character and I love how she does so much even though people keep trying to stifle her. She is my favorite character in this series and I can’t wait to see what happens after what she did at the end of this book.
Dara: I still kind of disliked Dara for the most part. This book didn’t change my thoughts about him. He still is willing to listen to his own prejudices and hurt people even when he knows that it is the wrong things to do.
Alizayd al Qahtani (Ali): He is so naive, but I can’t help but like his character. He has grown so much with not just his power, but also as a person. He loves his family intensely, but knows that change needs to happen for progress to be made in the land he loves. I can’t wait to see what happens now that we know of his connections to the Marid and his new connection with Deavabad.
Muntadhir: I wish I would have seen more of Muntadhir than what we got in this book. He seemed to truly care about Nahri, but his fear of Ali kept him from thinking so clearly.
Ghassam: I still found him much like a venomous viper. I couldn’t trust him even when he was doing something that could be considered kind.
Jamshid: Getting more backstory with Jamshid was amazing. I can’t wait to see how Chakraborty continues to develop him as a character.

Overall:
This book was so fantastic and such a joy to read! I can’t wait until the third book comes out and I get a chance to get my hands on it. I need to see what happens next and how this is all going to conclude. ( )

The Kingdom of Copper picks up soon after the ending of the first book in the Daevabad Trilogy. Alizayd (Ali) al Qahtani, younger son of the king of Daevabad, has been exiled and is a target for assassins. He's rescued by a raiding party and returned to Daevabad, where his older brother Muntadhir (heir to the throne) is in a loveless marriage with Nahri, an Egyptian refugee whose has magical healing powers. Nahri and Ali are drawn back together with her dream to restore a long-ruined hospital, helping the outcast shafit, mixed human/djinn blood, as well as pureblooded djinn, or daeva, which is forbidden. Meanwhile, King Ghassan and his royal guard continue to promote discord among the populace. Finally, Dara (a powerful djinn with a violent past), who was supposedly killed by Ali, is summoned by Nahri’s outlaw mother, Manizheh, in the land of the dead to assist her in a military attack and political takeover of Daevabad. Like the prior book, this is a fresh and exotic take on fantasy centered on Muslim culture. Strong characters, magic, and complex social issues abound. 4.5 stars. ( )
