The city of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty
« on: December 08, 2018, 11:57:39 PM »
Read up to 100 pages , does it get better to those who have read the novel?

To me this feel like a YA romance with the heroine thief lusting after the hot handsome Djinn with a trek that  is seeming to take ages to get to the city.

Tell me there won’t be a love triangle.

I prefer the sub plot with the prince in the Djinn city.

I dudn't get any of that from it. Thought it was a bloody good story that deserves the various accolades its received. It has to be sajd I am a sucker for Arabian Nights flavoured stuff.

Finished once the  too long journey ended  to get to the city and everyone met up in the palace the story went up a notch, I probably read the next one in the series now.
