The following is an honest review of The Kingdom of Copper by S.A. Chakraborty and my suggested age rating. This review may contain spoilers since it is the second in a trilogy.
Synopsis of The Kingdom of Copper
Book one, The City of Brass, ended on a cliffhanger and this one picks up right where it left off. Nahri believes Dara to be dead, Ali has been exiled, and Nahri’s marriage to Muntadhir is a constant reminder of her shackles to the king.
As Nahri continues to increase her skills as the Banu Nahida, she longs for a life where everyone, even the shafits, are able to have access to healers and medicines, not just the pureblood Djinn. She hopes that by doing so she would be able to do something worthwhile, unlike the people she finds herself surrounded by. Even though the king exiled Ali and even tried to have him killed, he finds he is making a life for himself in Am Gezira. One he might even begin to find happiness in. At the same time, a surprise character emerges who is plotting her revenge on Daevabad to reclaim what is rightfully her people’s. The revenge, in the form of an attack, is set to happen during Navasatem, the traditional Daeva festival. It will be ruthless, not caring about the innocent, and seeks the ultimate power.
Review of The Kingdom of Copper
This book was a bit harder to keep up with than The City of Brass because it incorporated more of the story’s lands/different tribes. However, I still enjoyed it and it didn’t defer me from reading it. The Kingdom of Copper has some of the most complex characters I have ever read about. Each one has many facets and are often times morally gray. This only leaves the reader wanting more. Throughout the book you see characters developing in ways you didn’t think were possible. I loved how the plot of this story was established pretty early on and the storyline steadily built off of it throughout. Just like The City of Brass, this book too ended on a cliffhanger and I can’t wait to see how the final book of the trilogy concludes this amazing series.
I gave this book 5/5 stars on Goodreads.
Age Rating for The Kingdom of Copper
