Hark! If you yearn for fantastical stories set elsewhere besides the snowy peaks and lush green forests of medieval Europe, if elven kin and dragonkind no longer interest you, I implore you to read this book. The story begins by following the travails of Nahri, con artist extraordinaire living on the streets of 18th century Cairo. While executing a scam, Nahri briefly taps into a knowledge and power she thought didn’t exist. This catapults her into a magical journey filled with adventure and danger, with surprises at every turn. Journey into the City of Brass, if you dare.
