Publisher's Summary

Return to Daevabad in the spellbinding sequel to The City of Brass.

In Daevabad, where djinn can summon flames with a snap of their fingers, where rivers run deep with ancient magic, and blood can be as dangerous as any spell, a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom.

Nahri’s life changed forever when she accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable, mysterious djinn, during one of her schemes. Thrust into the dazzling royal court of Daevabad, she needed all of her grifter instincts to survive. Now, as Nahri embraces her heritage and her power, she must forge a new path.

Exiled for daring to defy his father, Ali is adrift on the unforgiving sands of his ancestral land, hunted by assassins and forced to rely on frightening new abilities that threaten to reveal a terrible family secret.

And as a new century approaches and the djinn gather within Daevabad's brass walls to celebrate, a power in the desolate north will bring a storm of fire straight to the city’s gates....

Wonderful!

I LOVE this series. This is the sequel to The City of Brass. It’s epic fantasy, with elements of romance, but the world building is first class and it’s wonderful to immerse yourself in middle eastern myths and read about djinn and daevas etc. The politics of this series are intricate and I’m loving the fact the characters are complex and flawed. Soneela Nankani is a wonderful narrator. There were a few slower moments in this one, but overall the pacing is excellent.

Brilliant narration.

Great sequel. Brilliantly read. But narrative needed more of Dara. A lot more. It’s like writing an X-Men novel and Wolverine is only in it every 50 pages. He’s the real lead. Make no mistake. It’s Dara’s story we really care about. When you leave out the best character it waters down the narrative.

Lots of politics

I did enjoy this book but got a bit bored of one atrocity after another by the djinn, daevas and shafit. Nahri confused me with her loyalty to the Daeva and Dara’s memory. Dara has gone all remorseful and bemoans the past crimes he was ‘made’ to do. Ali is a hot head that seems to want to get himself killed. And the king just goes round killing everyone because his city comes first. Enjoyable but I’m not that invested in any of the characters as they’re all a bit annoying.

Interesting

A very interesting next step in the story. Great twists and character growth. Loved hearing the justifications from all sides. I will definitely be listening to the next book.

Pure entertainment!

I have to say I really enjoyed this book! So much drama, I just loved it. And tbh I was somewhat hesitant continuing the series after the first book (I'm sorry but I'm not a fan of that cave scene ...... cringe) but this book is just maze balls! The story flows on and there's no dull moment. I enjoyed the performance as well and I think it's very fitting for this sort of a book. I read a review where somebody said the plot was sometimes a bit difficult to follow but I honestly didnt feel that way. I cant wait to get my next credit as I know where I'll spend it!

Disappointing narration

Narrator gives the lead woman the voice of a child. She gets it really wrong. The woman is written as a strong character, capable and clever but she is portrayed as a whining weak person. The other characters are well narrated.

Incredibly detailed plotline

The narrator annoyingly mispronounces several words, plait and niche spring to mind and the storyline is rather labyrinthine at times and hard to follow but overall I’m loving this series, looking forward to the third instalment

Superb

I listened to this story on my commute to and from work and on a loooong road journey. The narrator did a stunning job. I could recognise which male characters were speaking - thr narrator gave them such wonderful unique voices that they were distinguishable.

Couldn't stop listening

I left off Nahari a while back and waited for the release date for ages, it seems. The author managed to refresh my memory of the first book while adding more and more layers to this intricate tale and I was hooked again. I love the combination of magic and religion in this book, the descriptions of the djin culture and the love stories that unfold further in this sequel.

Can’t wait for next book

I have really enjoyed two books so far. It’s Arabian nights flavors with magic, djinn, love, heartbreak. The narrator is good that makes a big difference. I had a couple of books where readers voice was so annoying it distracted from the story. Please bring out the next book at the same time as the paper version
