Publisher's Summary

On the island of Kekon, the Kaul family is locked in a violent feud for control of the capital city and the supply of magical jade that endows trained Green Bone warriors with supernatural powers they alone have possessed for hundreds of years. 

Beyond Kekon's borders, war is brewing. Powerful foreign governments and mercenary criminal kingpins alike turn their eyes on the island nation. Jade, Kekon's most prized resource, could make them rich - or give them the edge they'd need to topple their rivals. 

Faced with threats on all sides, the Kaul family is forced to form new and dangerous alliances, confront enemies in the darkest streets and the tallest office towers, and put honor aside in order to do whatever it takes to ensure their own survival - and that of all the Green Bones of Kekon. 

Jade War is the second book of the Green Bone Saga, an epic trilogy about family, honor, and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.

A gut wrenching masterpiece of fantasy fiction

Jade City marked Fonda Lee as an author to watch, and its sequel proves her to be a master of the field. Mixing the traditions of epic fantasy, Hong Kong Kung Fu cinema, and crime drama, Lee's work is nothing short of staggering in its ambition. That she manages to make this heady mix seem effortless in its execution is all the more impressive. This book consumed my life for the past few days and is sure to continue doing so weeks after hearing its last words. Please buy it so there will be more people in the world with whom I can discuss Green Bone politics and sing Lee's praises.

Wow!

This book was even better than the first one. The world building is amazing and extends so much farther than book 1. The characters were all dynamic and interesting.
