Reviews

"The City of Brass is the best adult fantasy I've read since The Name of the Wind. It's stunning and complex and consuming and fantastic. You must read it."
Sabaa Tahir, #1 New York Times bestselling author of An Ember in the Ashes

"A rich Middle Eastern fantasy...Against [a] syncretic yet nonderivative and totally credible backdrop, Chakraborty has constructed a compelling yarn of personal ambition, power politics, racial and religious tensions, strange magics, and terrifying creatures, culminating in a cataclysmic showdown that few readers will anticipate...Best of all, the narrative feels rounded and complete yet poised to deliver still more. Highly impressive and exceptionally promising."
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

"An opulent masterpiece. 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. The City of Brass is a must-read."
Roshani Chokshi, New York Times bestselling author of The Star-Touched Queen

"A richly imagined, stunningly immersive book that takes you into a world of darkly alluring djinn, terrifying monsters and beguiling magic. Subversive and clever in its politics, nothing is quite as it seems in treacherous, seductive Daevabad. Peopled with irresistible characters and steeped in the myths of the Middle East, The City of Brass is a dazzlingly inventive tale, set in a world that feels both familiar and new. You will race to the end of this bold and brilliant debut."
Ausma Zehanat Khan, award-winning author of the Khattak/Getty mysteries and The Bloodprint
