The Kingdom of Cooper by S.A. Chakraborty

The Kingdom of Copper

It is expected to be published by January 22, 2019, by Harper Voyager. 

I am so excited for this next book in the series! I adore The City of Brass. I can’t wait to see the journey. I don’t want to say much because of, you know, spoilers. But I can tell you this… READ THE CITY OF BRASS!!! 

I love this cover! When I thought there was no way that they can beat The City of Brass’ cover… I was 100% wrong. This is a perfect companion to the fire on the first cover. The water, the city in the background. I’m glad to see it flow really beautifully. I’m glad to see the typography the way it is. It’s very simple. It doesn’t need to be flowery and flowing. 

Now, I’m very curious about the next book. The color? The background design? What do you think it’ll end up being?

S. A. Chakraborty continues the sweeping adventure begun in The City of Brass — “the best adult fantasy I’ve read since The Name of the Wind”  –  #1 New York Times bestselling author Sabaa Tahir — conjuring a world where djinn summon flames with the snap of a finger and waters run deep with old magic; where blood can be dangerous as any spell, and a clever con artist from Cairo will alter the fate of a kingdom.

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 the battle that saw Dara slain at Prince Ali’s hand, Nahri must forge a new path for herself, without the protection of the guardian who stole her heart or the counsel of the prince she considered a friend. 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.
