Nahri’s life was changed forever when one of her plans accidentally summoned Dara, a formidable and mysterious Djinn. Kidnapped from her home in Cairo, she was thrown into Daevabad’s dazzling royal court, and she quickly discovered that she would need all of her criminal instincts to survive there.
Now, with Daevabad entrenched in the dark aftermath of a devastating battle, Nahri must chart a new path for herself. But even as she embraces her legacy and the power she wields, she knows that she was trapped in a gilded cage, watched over by a king who ruled from the throne that once belonged to her family, and one wrong step will destroy her. her tribe.
Meanwhile, Ali was banished for daring to defy his father. Pursued by assassins, adrift on the unforgiving coppery sands of his ancestral lands, he is forced to rely on the fearsome abilities bestowed upon him by the Marid, the unpredictable spirits of the water. But in the process he threatens to unearth a terrible secret that has buried her family for a long time.
And as a new century approaches and genies gather to celebrate within Daevabad’s towering bronze walls, an unseen threat looms in the desolate north. It is a force that would bring a firestorm right to the gates of the city. . . and one who seeks help from a warrior caught between worlds, torn between a violent duty she can never escape and a peace she fears she may never deserve.

The Kingdom of Copper is a stunning sequel to Chakraborty’s first novel, The City of Brass. In fact, I really have loved it even more than the first book! If you haven’t read The City of Bronze yet, do so before you read The Kingdom of Copper. The rest of this review will contain the spoilers for The City of Brass.
Five years after the events of The City of Bronze, Daevabad is in trouble. The Shafit, people of human descent, are being treated worse than ever and tensions between the main factions are high. In addition, the city faces intense economic problems. Now married to Muntadhir, Nahri leads a very restricted life as her father-in-law hardly allows her to leave the palace.
Ali survived the assassination attempts and made a living in a small mountain town where her power over water, bequeathed by Maridian possessions from the previous book, can mean life or death in the desert. Meanwhile… Dara is back. Somehow he was raised from the dead and also restored to what the jinn were before Solomon’s seal. And he’s not the only one unexpectedly alive, so is Nahri’s mother, and she plans to retake Daevabad at all costs.
I apologize for that, but I really need to get it out of my system. I hate Dara so much. a lot. When I saw that he was back in the Copper Kingdom, I just thought “urghhh WHY”. I think Dara is the kind of possessive, alpha male character who has all kinds of warning signs of abusive relationships and is full of toxic masculinity. Also, he’s literally a war criminal throwing this away just like that. To be honest, he is just the worst. But here’s the thing: the narrative knows Dara’s borderline insults.
While the narrative may have some sympathy for the terrible things that happened to Dara, it doesn’t excuse the terrible things he did. I’m here for the stories that hold shitty men accountable. But while this is my read on Dara, a quick look at Goodreads reviews shows that I’m pretty much on my own. Apparently many other reviewers really love Dara (sometimes gushingly implying how “brooding” he is)? And send it with Nahri???
As much as I hate it, I think it makes sense. Many stories treat abusive behavior as romantic (shout Naomi Novik’s Uprooted), so what I read as deconstruction, other people may read as pure romance. I think it’s like Star Wars fans sending Rey and Kylo. Yes, I just marked Nahri/Dara’s chargers as equivalent to Reylo’s chargers. And I will keep it.
Now that I’m done yelling about how we guys shouldn’t romanticize genocide, let’s move on to another topic: how damned good is the kingdom of copper. I loved Kingdom of Copper. I didn’t want to put this book down. Do you know how much self-control it took to put that book down to go to sleep or to go to class? Much. Also, I really avoided people before class so they wouldn’t try to talk to me and interrupt my reading. I had to find out what happened! The story is so exciting because you have these multiple threads that obviously converge in the worst possible way for our protagonists. It is adorable.
The beginning of The Kingdom of Copper was a bit difficult for me because I could remember very little from the first book. The thing that tripped me up the most was the memory of all the different departments in Daevabad, but I finally figured it out and was able to really dive in from there.
Otherwise, what I loved about The Copper Kingdom was present in the first book: excellent world building, excellent writing, and characters that I quickly grew to like. Weirdly, do I like the idea of Nahri and Ali as a couple? That’s super unusual for me. I generally like fictional friendships better than romantic relationships. I think it’s all the chaotic dynamics of lawful good/good that sets them off.
Before we wrap up this review, let’s talk about Queerness in The Kingdom of Copper! This series acknowledges that queer people exist and actually has two queer male characters in love with each other. One of them is Muntadhir, Nahri’s husband. He was really scared that one of them would die (that was a big fear in the first book too) and I really hope there isn’t some weird tragedy in this series. Spoilers: [(We almost kept having a weird tragedy.
Both with the ending of the last book and some things in this one. Muntadhir was supposed to be fatally poisoned, but he was saved at the last minute. I really don’t know how I feel. narrative is becoming more and more of a weird tragedy because it stresses me out.) (hide spoiler)] At another point, I think Muntadhir might fall into the promiscuous bisexual stereotype. I guess my verdict on the queer reputation on this show would be that it’s not terrible, but it’s not super amazing either.
