About this deal
At the end of the day they were able to show how freedom and strength lies in letting women (and people, in general) choose the role they want to uphold in the first place. Jade War also follows in the footsteps of the first book by making sure that the main themes of love, family, honor, and duty were evident in the narrative.
On the island of Kekon, the Kaul family is locked in a violent feud for control of the capital city and the supply of magical jade that endows trained Green Bone warriors with supernatural powers they alone have possessed for hundreds of years. I'm saddened that my journey with these characters is nearing an end, and that's always a sign of a highly enjoyable series.
Anden, still refusing to wear jade after killing Gont Asch in Jade City, is sent to the Espenian city of Port Massy to study. Even if Anden wins my favourite character award, it’s Bero who raises a smile as I wonder what trouble he’s going to get himself into next. of the book is talking about things to come, setting up stakes and tension; the problem is the payoff is extremely poor in the majority of cases. We also have 3 maps at the start of the book as we are now talking about politics on a continent level.Readers will visit Uwiwa Islands, spend a great deal of time in Espenia, and will become intimately familiar with the conflicts between the other nations. Love the expansion into international politics and all the plot threads Lee keeps weaving until the very end. I love the Kauls dearly, but I too later realised that I had romanticised the Green Bone way and was piqued (and later, impressed) that I had become so drawn into the Kauls' journey and had fervently justified their decisions only to realise -- wait, hang on.
Bero’s arc is supposed to show how jade inevitably corrupts people, but all his character development is off page! However, she is so focused on explaining every small detail, that every other aspect of the book is obscured by this mass of informations. I never thought I would love geopolitics and economics in fantasy as much as Fonda Lee made me love them.I honestly can’t wait to read how Lee will improve her cinematic set pieces in the next—the last—installment of the series. Yun Dorupon, the traitorous former Weather Man to No Peak, and Bero and Mudt, the murderers who benefitted, remain at large.
