I have been very vocal about my love of Jade City since I read it earlier this summer. Fortunately for me, the sequel, Jade War, came out in July, so I could continue on with the story almost immediately! I very rarely read books in series so close to each other, but I absolutely could not resist jumping into Jade War as soon as I could. Jade War continues the story of Jade City with just as much tension and excitement of its predecessor.
Jade City has been on my radar for ages -- I’ve owned a copy for at least a year, but never got around to it. In an attempt to actually read the diverse fantasy that I keep buying, I decided to give it a try and wow. This is another book to add to the ‘why didn’t I read this sooner?’ shelf. An antidote to the medieval Eurpoean settings and stories that dominate modern fantasy, Jade City is a rich and wild ride about power, politics, and family.
