I received this as an ARC in the most recent Illumicrate, although it has now been published.
I read it in one sitting, it was that good. Compelling writing, interesting plot and characters, clever world building. I just thoroughly enjoyed it.
Nahri is an orphan who makes her living selling cures and telling people’s futures in a Cairo market, until one day she’s asked to perform an exorcism and things become very weird.
Using characters and creatures from Middle Eastern mythology, Chakraborty creates an incredibly vivid world where myth and magic collide with our world.
I cannot wait for the next book. As I finished this one I was going “but no, more story, now please!”
If you enjoy fantasy then this is a book for you.
Anyone else read it? If so what did you think?
