Of cities hidden among the swirling sands of the desert, full of enchantment, desire and riches. Where magic pours down every street, hanging in the air like dust. Many wish their lives could be filled with such wonder, but not Nahri.
She only wishes to one day leave Cairo, but as the saying goes… Be careful what you wish for. Set in eighteenth century Cairo, The City of Brass follows Nahri, a young con woman who has never believed in magic, and Ali, a young djinn prince who lives in the magical hidden city of Daevabad.
Something to note about The City of Brass is that it is actually an adult fantasy title, however, it has a strong crossover appeal with the YA audience and can definitely be enjoyed by them. In saying this, the younger side of YA may struggle a little bit with the book.
Simply put, The City of Brass is a masterpiece. I had a lot of fun reading this book, and this is in part due to the characters. Nahri in particular was such a joy to read, and I love that her character has so much depth. The cover is so stunning and detailed and absolutely beautiful trust me, the website does not do it justice! The City of Brass is a definite must-read, and one I will be rereading over and over again. About the Author S. An organizer with the Brooklyn Speculative Fiction Writers' group.
