Chakraborty ´ 8 read 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 tribeMeanwhile 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. Can you ever make a new world that properly addresses the wounds of the past from Lightspeed interview The Kingdom of Copper is the second in SA Chakraborty s Daevabad Trilogy and it must be trying harder as the first was amazing and this one is at least as good I suppose you might pick this book up and have an entirely fine time reading it but I would not advise it If you have not read the first one The City of Brass jump on your flying carpet and dash off to your local bookstore Oh and could you pick up some lamp oil at the bazaar on your way back Thanks I suppose you could use one of your wishes to just make it appear but really that would be cheesy It s like Game of Thrones Yeah you can jump in at some point and catch up bit by bit but really you have to be there from the beginning to get the most from it Ditto here Come back after you have read volume one ok And if you have already read 1 then Salaam and good evening to you worthy friend Shannon A Chakraborty image from her siteSo when we left our heroes Nahri an orphan of a hustler from Cairo who discovered she had skills is stuck in Daevabad the nominal city of the series title Her buddy of a prince Ali had been banished from the kingdom for opposing his pop the ruthless genocidal king Ghassan and Darayavahoush Dara to you and me a complicated Djinn sort monstrous warrior hottie and decent guy was done in by said Prince Ali although Ali may not have been entirely in charge of himself when it happened There is at least one sand ship that flies through the story and this was the closest image I could find image from Munin s sketchblogWe are several years on Nahri is married to Muntadhir Ali s older brother the heir apparent handsome smart and the epitome of Mr Wrong More of a political alliance than a love match Marry my son or I will start slaughtering your people Well since you put it that way sure Ali is making a life for himself in a desert town using his newfound talent for things aueous to locate underground water or make it appear or something He is reluctant to make too much of a life for himself as he remains the target of occasional assassins and would spare potential family members the discomfort of having to plant him or maybe get caught in the crossfire Dara who we thought was gone is only sort of gone He is brought back from some plane of existence where he was wandering by forces that are less than divine but hey he gets to live a bit so whatev On the other hand Dara is enslaved again made to take on a mission he would probably be happier skipping Mass slaughter is sooo last millennium And he is stuck in a material form he is not thrilled with So a mixed bag All three must contend with not only external hostile forces but internal moral crossroads yeah like Grand Central Station The World of the Daevabad Trilogy from the author s siteIn book 1 we alternated between Nahri and Ali s POV This book adds Dara s although for far fewer pages than the other two There is overlap of course as combinations of the three engage at diverse points Political intrigue continues to be a major feature here Very GoT as sundry tribal groups even within families vie for influence power and turf Instead of the Seven Kingdoms with their associated Targarians Lannisters and Starks et al there are tribes The Geziri are the current ruling class to which Ali Muntadhir and Ghassan belong Nahri is of the Daeva group Her ancestors used to rule in Daevabad until the Geziris drove them out with extreme prejudice Since you read the first volume you read it right you know it gets complicated The City of Daevabad image from author s siteThe motive force for the story in Book 2 Nahri has discovered the remnants of an ancient Nahid hospital in less than wonderful shape and seeks to have it restored so she can expand her work In addition she has learned of non magical healers in the city and looks to join with them to broaden her knowledge base and treat all the city s residents As one might imagine this notion meets considerable resistance from those in power No not Steve King But with the help of Ali whom she hates by the way for killing Dara Ali had gotten suckered into coming back to the city wondering if he would be slaughtered when he arrived there is some hope of gettin er done It takes a village though Others are brought in to the attempt and politics are played Can t we all just get alongThere is a big centennial event planned for the city called Novatetem Mardi Gras on steroids parades floats feasts competitions and well there are folks who are planning some unpleasantness The action accelerates as we get closer and closer the November 1963 moment in Dallas the coming hurricane the ticking bomb You know the deal Michael Bay cum White Walkers cum ILM magnificence and great fun But also with characters you care about trying to make it throughImage by Juan De LaraThere are secrets aplenty double crosses and some pretty neat magical tech Toss in a few nifty large scale monsters for good measure One of the really cool things about the fabulous environment Chakraborty has created is that buildings constructed by the Nahid respond to Nahri who is now the 1 Nahid in the place so is referred to as Banu Nahri e Nahid aka Banu Nahida or Lady Nahri of the Nahid people which comes with perks Pictures on the walls of Nahid buildings animate when she passes Things like that and some that are substantive Pretty cool In addition to the internal struggles with which each of the characters must cope there are broader scale motifs The notion of Occupied People is a strong one in the book In medieval history so many of these cities and civilizations were the products of waves of conuest How does that shape the societies that survive them generations later How do conueror and conuered influence each other and how do their stories and legends of what happened get transmitted Can you ever make a new world that properly addresses the wounds of the past from the Lightspeed interviewImage from ShkyscrapercitycomIt is a major challenge trying to figure out how to make peace with the travesties wrought on the Nahid by the Geziri but also on others by the Nahid How can you step off the eternal wheel of revenge and retribution how can you heal the wounds of the past In a very concrete way Nahri attempts to do just that Even though she was an impressive healer in book one she was largely an uneducated one But she has been working and studying hard is learning some new tricks and now in a place that seems to act as a booster to her abilities she is becoming an even better doctor But can Nahri in league with others keep the city from descending into the usual cycle of eternal genocidal violence Can she forgive Ali Can she survive her crappy shotgun marriage and her psycho genocidal father in law It takes than an ability to repair bodies to heal a city Chakraborty s decision to make Nahri a doctor grew out of her own experience I wrote a lot of this while managing a large obstetrics gynecology practice while my husband went to medical school and I really wanted to capture the messy reality of medicine It s not always glamourous and noble it can be exhausting the work is bloody and tiresome and challenging and sometimes your patients are terrible It reuires a confidence bordering on arrogance to cut into a person for their own good and I wanted to show how a character might grow into that from the uilltoLive interviewImage by Juan De LaraThere are bits of humor sprinkled throughout My favorite is when a shape shifter with a fondness for turning into a statue cannot get back to normal and Nahri is stuck removing pieces of rock from him But it s so peaceful he pleads There is another LOL scene in which Ali is compelled by his father to taste some impressively appalling dishes from around the kingdom A ref to a hospital room specially designed to keep floating djinn from injuring themselves puts one in mind of a Mary Poppins scene in which characters and furniture dispense with gravity These were delightfulThere are a lot of details to keep track of tribes places words characters Thankfully appendices are provided as are rather broad view maps which I included here My only disappointment with the book was that Dara did not get as much time as the other two the definition of a uibble Image from The Thief of BaghdadI ve gotta say that volume 2 was a major page turner for me The ARE I read came in at 608 pages and I wished it were longer really oops there goes another wish How many do I have left The action is almost non stop The characters are seriously engaging There is actual character development Moral considerations are treated seriously There is real content woven into this fantasy world an appreciation for the literary history of Islamic civilization and there is wonderful creativity in the details of magic here The Kingdom of Copper is pretty much all you could possibly wish for in a fantasy read And you don t even have to use up the limited supply in your special lampReview posted January 18 2019Publication date January 22 2019EXTRA STUFFLinks to the author s personal Twitter and FB pagesInterviews SYFY Wire SA Chakraborty s The City of Brass started out as history fan fiction by Swapna Krishna Shannon Chakraborty didn t want to be a writer when she grew up I wanted to be a historian but I ve been a bookworm since I was a kid she said She originally wanted to be a historian with a specialization in the Middle East That plan got a bit derailed for a variety of reasons one of which was graduating in 2008 when the economy collapsed so I figured I d work while my husband went to medical school and keep my mind occupied with a little world buildinghistorical fan fiction she explainsIt s that experience that led Chakraborty who was born raised in New Jersey by blue collar Catholic parents to the seed that became The City of Brass It sprouted the day I set foot in the rare books library of the American University of Cairo she explains There she lost herself in the stories and lore around her As a homesick homework laden and rather wide eyed new Muslim myself I found in these stories a refuge they spoke of a history that dazzled a faith of breathtaking diversity in which my weird background was nothing new nor particularly noteworthy The uill to Live The City of Brass An Interview With S A Chakraborty I come from a pretty big family and always enjoy seeing well done portrayals of complicated messy exasperating and yet also still loving relatives I think it s a thing many of us can relate to And I ve always had a particular fascination with rival princes They re fairly common in history and yet I can t imagine the emotions that go behind making a decision to war against your own brotherThere was certainly some inspiration from my own family My twin brother and I are very close and I was very protective of him especially when we were younger even when we were fighting This was definitely an emotion and dynamic that I was trying to capture with Muntadhir and Ali Though my brother isn t a wealthy libertine playboy destined to rule a shaky kingdom so the similarities end there Pen America On Magic History and Storytelling The PEN Ten with S A Chakraborty by Lily Philpott an
