Description

“No series since George R.R. Martin’s A Song of Ice and Fire has quite captured both palace intrigue and the way that tribal infighting and war hurt the vulnerable the most.” —Paste Magazine

The final chapter in the bestselling, critically acclaimed Daevabad Trilogy, in which a con-woman and an idealistic djinn prince join forces to save a magical kingdom from a devastating civil war.

Daevabad has fallen.

After a brutal conquest stripped the city of its magic, Nahid leader Banu Manizheh and her resurrected commander, Dara, must try to repair their fraying alliance and stabilize a fractious, warring people.

But the bloodletting and loss of his beloved Nahri have unleashed the worst demons of Dara’s dark past. To vanquish them, he must face some ugly truths about his history and put himself at the mercy of those he once considered enemies.

Having narrowly escaped their murderous families and Daevabad’s deadly politics, Nahri and Ali, now safe in Cairo, face difficult choices of their own. While Nahri finds peace in the old rhythms and familiar comforts of her human home, she is haunted by the knowledge that the loved ones she left behind and the people who considered her a savior are at the mercy of a new tyrant. Ali, too, cannot help but look back, and is determined to return to rescue his city and the family that remains. Seeking support in his mother’s homeland, he discovers that his connection to the marid goes far deeper than expected and threatens not only his relationship with Nahri, but his very faith.

As peace grows more elusive and old players return, Nahri, Ali, and Dara come to understand that in order to remake the world, they may need to fight those they once loved . . . and take a stand for those they once hurt.

    This was really so great, I just enjoyed every minute of it! Such lush descriptions of places, magical creatures, and characters. How could you not fall in love with this world. I loved the story and where it went. I laughed and cried and I’m sorry it is over. Although it leaves room for much more to tell ( please please)! A really great series, especially if you love Egypt, like I do!

    The Empire of Gold is nothing short of a revelation. It is a truly difficult task for a writer to continue to enthrall readers beyond an original story, but Charkraborty has managed with each release to elevate her saga into the pantheon of literary trilogies. I could not set this book down until I was too tired to continue, then I was almost jittery until I could pick it up again and continue. It had been over a year since I’d read the preceding volumes, so I reread them in anticipation of The Empire of Gold. To my great surprise, they were even better the second time because I could take my time and luxuriate in the precision of Chakraborty’s writing. I suspect this trilogy will stand the test of time and still be relevant into the next millennium. Give your spirit a gift and read The Daevabad Trilogy.
