Description

Having narrowly escaped their murderous families and Daevabad’s deadly politics, Nahri and Ali, now safe in Cairo, face difficult choices of their own. As this book is the final in the trilogy, I want to be very careful not to drop any spoilers for anyone who has not yet read the first two books. I still think the love triangle is used way too much in fiction and should be put to rest, but I was okay with how things went in Empire of Gold. On the one hand, it’s nice to be reminded of prior events, to ease one’s way back into this world of djinn and politics and strange magic, on the other hand, it makes for somewhat slow reading during the first ahlf of this book.

I said it in my review of The Kingdom of Copper, if I had to choose between Ghassan and Manizheh, I’d choose Ghassan. Ali had his strict religious upbringing and must contend with the awkwardness of the object of his desire being his brother’s wife. Through her medical and community work, Nahri had developed a following there, and feels responsible to her followers for trying to repair the damage her mother has done. All three books flip between the protagonists of three different characters, all vying for the control of Daevabad, the city at the core of their world.Today I am reviewing one of my most anticipated reads for 2020 and the final installment in the Daevabad trilogy – The Empire of Gold. And then there are political considerations, (would you be with someone from the family that murdered large numbers of your people? In Empire of Gold, that personal journey delves ever deeper as Nahri navigated all of her past alliances to find a place where she belongs. And I’ll be honest and say that I didn’t come around to her even when it was revealed that she regretted it and stayed with him. That’s how good the writing, story, and characters are as well as the general dynamic of the storytelling itself.

Plenty of fantasy books have great characters, but I think what makes this series stand out is that all three of these are so interesting for the entire course of three pretty long books. On top of all that, I really didn’t care for how much they hid from the reader about how they were going to defeat Manizheh.No offense to Ali, really, I just found myself caring so deeply about the other four so much that the only thing I cared about for Ali was that he didn’t die.
