"The sequel to S. A. Chakraborty's brilliantly imagined fantasy The City of Brass, which #1 New York Times bestelling author Sabaa Tahir called "the best adult fantasy I've read since The Name of the Wind", in which a young con artist drawn into the kingdom of the djinn must navigate her way through their dangerous world of magic, court politics, and ever-shifting alliances"--
When she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable djinn, Nahri was whisked from her home in Cairo and thrust into the royal court of Daevabad. She quickly discovered she would need all her grifter instincts to survive there. Daevabad is entrenched in the dark aftermath of a devastating battle, and Nahri knows she's being watched by a king who rules from the throne that once belonged to her family. Ali has been exiled for daring to defy his father and relies on the abilities which unpredictable water spirits gifted him. But in doing so, he threatens to unearth a terrible secret his family has long kept buried. -- adapted from jacket

I absolutely loved the first book. This second one had so many names, categories, varieties and races that I could not keep up. I also felt characterers sometimes acted in a contradictory out of character manner and inconsistent . I was also tired of the constant bickering.

It seemed like the author was relying on a couple schticks or tropes for each character. I found it wearisome.

Over 600 pages. Once I realized it was becoming a chore to read, I ditched it.

Too bad. The first book was charming and fun.

Taking place five years after the events of the first book in the series, Kingdom of Copper jumps right into the adventure and political intrigue that made City of Brass so appealing. Much of the romance from the first book is missing, but, in this instance, that only adds to the fast-paced appeal of the book.
