The Kingdom of Copper picks up soon after the ending of the first book in the Daevabad Trilogy. Alizayd (Ali) al Qahtani, younger son of the king of Daevabad, has been exiled and is a target for assassins. He's rescued by a raiding party and returned to Daevabad, where his older brother Muntadhir (heir to the throne) is in a loveless marriage with Nahri, an Egyptian refugee whose has magical healing powers. Nahri and Ali are drawn back together with her dream to restore a long-ruined hospital, helping the outcast shafit, mixed human/djinn blood, as well as pureblooded djinn, or daeva, which is forbidden. Meanwhile, King Ghassan and his royal guard continue to promote discord among the populace. Finally, Dara (a powerful djinn with a violent past), who was supposedly killed by Ali, is summoned by Nahri’s outlaw mother, Manizheh, in the land of the dead to assist her in a military attack and political takeover of Daevabad. Like the prior book, this is a fresh and exotic take on fantasy centered on Muslim culture. Strong characters, magic, and complex social issues abound. 4.5 stars. ( )

Returning to Daevabad and the rich world of Djinn and Deava, the story takes place at least 5 years following "City of Brass."

Nahri is the Banu for Geziri ruler Ghessan and works in the infirmary with her assistant Nesreen. She's become more skilled with her healing abilities. Nahri is also now married to Ghessan's heir, Muntadhir.

As the story continues, Manizheh is gathering men and power with Dara to invade Daevabad and get rid of Suleiman's Curse. Dara is torn at what happened on the lake with Nahri, Jamshid, and even Ali. He goes along with Manizheh's plan but refuses to allow himself to give over to his natural form which is much like an Ifrit.

During the story, Nahri discovers an old ruined Nahid hospital and three ex-slaves living there. She decides to make it her goal to rebuild the hospital. Out in the desert, Ali has been living his life away from his Geziri royal title and finally stopped looking over his shoulder for assassins. But, we readers know that won't last. He is tricked into returning to Daevabad.

Once all the characters are in Daevabad, the story slowed down a lot for me. Ali was his typical pretentious sanctimonious self. Muntadhir was a drunk ass, Jamshid was a poor guy caught in the middle, Nahri was a seething mess of emotions, and Ghessan was also a dick. I had trouble following along at points - I was listening to the audiobook again - and I think this was the problem. If I missed something or didn't understand it, going back was too annoying with audio versus being able to flip back a page or reread a single paragraph. Another thing in this series is the parallel timeline. Daevabad is a magical hidden city and Nahri is from Cairo, Egypt during a time when guns are present as well as the French [I'm assuming Napoleonic invasion?]. I get so invested in the magic and myth of the Djinn that when something is thrown out about Nahri's past, I would get tossed out of the story.

There is a lot of interaction between all characters in Daevabad and within Manizheh's camp. The political stakes are high and when it comes, the action is exciting. The ending fell a little flat for me or I guess I was thinking something slightly different was going to happen. I think I'll try to read the book for the last one and see if it makes more sense and flows a bit better for me.

**All thoughts and opinions are my own. I listened to this audiobook through my Libby app and local library branch.**

In one word: scheming.
Second book of the trilogy, with the magic and intrigue of palace life continuing.
Nahri seems to have accepted her lot in her new life: she acquiesces... until she doesn't!
Third book awaits! ( )
