Jade War topped all the stunning quality in Jade City, which has won many readers’ hearts and the World Fantasy Award trophy last year.

And while this book most certainly could not be described with such terms, it moves in that direction and I appreciated that change in focus. The books featured on this site are aimed primarily at readers aged 13 or above and therefore you must be 13 years or over to sign up to our newsletter. These are the kind of things that, in my opinion, separate the good and the great SFF authors from each other and Lee definitely belongs in the latter group. If that's the case, Fonda Lee has then achieved the seemingly impossible as the second novel in The Green Bone Saga excelled over the first in every possible way.

I’m gratified and impressed by the gangster fantasy series I’ve read this year; Priest of Lies by Peter McLean is included in one of my favorite reads of the year so far, and now Jade War joins the list as well. Take the last battle in Jade City, and increase that threefold, then you will have a notion of the crushing strength poured into the global jade war. All that mortals could do was accept the lot they were given, and yet still fight to better their own fate and that of their loved ones.

Crime and gangster type of stories is usually set in a very male-dominated society but the girlbosses women of this series were portrayed to have just the same (if not more) amounts of conscientiousness, passion, perseverance, diligence, and (sometimes) cruelty as their male counterparts without feeling the need to outright say it. For the first half of the book Lee sets up a situation where two characters are directly opposing in a media war, but when they finally confront each other it only lasts one chapter and the outcome is never brought up again. Jade War is just as good as the first entry in The Green Bone Saga but I have a feeling that Lee is saving the best for the finale and that she’s going to end this trilogy with an almighty bang. I also enjoyed the direction that Anden (the adopted brother) went with his character arc in a different country.Lee is the award-winning author of the YA science fiction novels Zeroboxer and Exo ; Jade City is her adult debut. Jason Sheehan of NPR was quick to notice the way "Lee has created an entire modern world here, complete and round with its own history, customs, traditions, language", as well as the way Jade War is "broader and wider" than the first novel. Even the side characters are well done, including the rival family which doesn't end up feeling like a "good vs. I think since I was used to lots of action, those stagnant chapters didn't last long and something interesting always came up.

His is the type of leadership that inspires undying loyalty as he takes the pain to interact with everyone personally.The action scenes were also well-written, we had a duel that kept me fixated on my tablet and although I just knew what won't happen, Lee proved to be unmerciful in the previous book so I was worried. I love how certain actions and the meanings behind their respective interactions are nuanced enough that when you catch the underlying implications, makes it extra fulfilling. Jade War is urban epic fantasy at its best, and Lee has cemented The Green Bone Saga as one of my favorite ongoing series with a groundbreaking impact. Summary: Jade War is the mega evolution form of Jade City where the author tended to all the small details in book 1. In the fight, Shae manages to cut off Ayt’s ear, a symbol of penance in the country of Kekon and Ayt will not live this one down.

Wen, the enigmatic wife to Hilo, is a stone-eye, a taboo word for someone who does not react to jade.He inspired the same feeling I got while reading about Kaladin from The Stormlight Archive, which is saying A LOT given that the latter is my all-time favourite. This book is full of twists and turns that ultimately make for a thrilling read that will make you want to just read it all over again.
