Description

Let me be absolutely clear, this is not a series where you want to jump in mid series and for sure you cannot read The Empire of Gold without having read the first two instalments. I will warn you now: if you did not pay attention to the title and see that this is review is full of spoilers, this is your second reminder that unless you’re okay with reading a review containing spoilers STOP READING. So, they decide to head back to Daevabad but along the way they encounter a very powerful and ancient Marid. And he’s also been learning that the focus on his father’s heritage has made him neglect his mother. However, saying that I do feel in places, this book was weaker than the previous ones for all that it wove the narrative threads and characters arcs together beautifully.

In the previous book, it was Ali and Nahri, but in this one, it was only Dara and it was very limited how much time we got to spend with him. We see hope, but also the inevitability of backsliding and a long lasting culture of mistrust and power playing.Chakraborty's debut is desire-soaked, intrigue-laced, and ripe with so-delicious-you'll-sink-your-teeth-into-it worldbuilding and equally mesmerizing characters. Chakraborty uses her time wisely because while the bigger plot may not be moving forward, the characters are growing quite a bit. Instead, she got effectively held hostage, forced into a marriage she didn’t want, and then discovered that her mother is a monster. I kind of missed Zaynab and Muntadhir in this book, they had a surprisingly small role here considering how important they were in the last book and I missed their sibling antics with Ali as they have such a great dynamic together. Among other awards and nominations which will be added here soon, the Daevabad Trilogy was nominated for a Hugo Award, a 2021 Best Series finalist.

From her most vulnerable moments, to the ones where she stood out like a Goddess among men…she’s probably one of my new favorite female characters – like, of all time.After a slow start, this book delivered pretty much everything I had hoped for and managed to stick the ending. I actually don’t mind having my soul crushed 😂 A Little Life crushed it in the best way possible; though I am now in a serious dilemma because how could anything I read next possibly compare? The places in which I was grinning like a fool: when Dara uses Manizeh’s words against her and tricks her into letting him kill her, when Ali’s siblings made fun of him, and when Jamshid found out that he was a Nahid.
