The Kingdom of Copper (2019) by S. A. Chakraborty

Ornate emerald green doors with a gold fa├žade frame the book while the silhouette of a palace can be seen in the distance.

Slow to start the book almost feels like a two act play. The first is slow and introductory, setting up the pieces for a wargame behind a fog of interpersonal conflicts. The second, a brutal and bloody conflict that awes you as much as it breaks you. A stunning sequel to the City of Brass. I look forward to reading, The Empire of Gold. I need a resolution.
