Props to Chakraborty for making Sobek and Tiamat marids; I love that she went for regional deities that, apparently, have a basis in reality. I’m going to be honest, while narratively the ending of the book is so good, I still ended up feeling a tad underwhelmed. Ta Ntry sounded amazing as well, I would love to live in a palace by the coast with an enormous library!

This helps you root for them, not that you will need much help, to find their way through the moral mazes that appear, overcome considerable obstacles, and try their damndest to make right what has been made wrong. Fortunately, I won’t have to begin my grieving process since the author is talking about writing further adventures, her Instagram even showcasing a chapter from Hatset (yessss! Ahhh, this was the perfect balm for my soul after it was left in absolute tatters by A Little Life 😭 I’m still not sure whether I’ll ever recover, but reading about Daevabad is a nice start.Nahri has grown so much from the girl we met at the start of the City of Brass, and honestly, I cannot think of a way in which her arc could have ended any more perfectly.

Chakraborty is damn great at getting my heart racing, whether it’s because a protagonist is facing their own death or holding the hand of a person they secretly love… I’d say the romance, family relationships, and action scenes were the strongest parts of this book. Banu Manizheh and Dara are left with their bleak kingdom, tortured and filled with blood, their peoples’ magic mysteriously gone.She also takes issue with what is a frequent trope in YA medieval fantasy, monarchies that rule for centuries undisturbed. I’ve always thought Dara was the most interesting of the three main characters, in part because we didn’t really get his perspective for quite a while. Instead, she got effectively held hostage, forced into a marriage she didn’t want, and then discovered that her mother is a monster. The Daevabad trilogy offers an intelligent take on family, religion, duty, and morality, is informed by an expert’s take on folklore and Middle Eastern history, and takes on fantasy tropes. It seems wrong when so many minor characters died (and there are ways to kill characters that won’t crush the reader’s soul like A Little Life 😅).
