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 a devastating battle, Nahri must forge a new path for herself. 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.

Can someone spoil this. I would like to know what happends, but many peopel are saying it's not worth the read.

The second volume in the series was a big disappointment to me. You will need to re-read the first volume immediately before reading this or you will spend the whole read trying to figure out what's going on and why. Heaven help anyone who hasn't read the first volume.
Much too complicated.

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.
