Jade War (The Green Bone Saga #2)
by Fonda Lee
Published July 2019 by Orbit
From Goodreads: In Jade War, the sequel to the World Fantasy Award-winning novel Jade City, the Kaul siblings battle rival clans for honor and control over an Asia-inspired fantasy metropolis.
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.
Beyond Kekon’s borders, war is brewing. Powerful foreign governments and mercenary criminal kingpins alike turn their eyes on the island nation. Jade, Kekon’s most prized resource, could make them rich – or give them the edge they’d need to topple their rivals.
Faced with threats on all sides, the Kaul family is forced to form new and dangerous alliances, confront enemies in the darkest streets and the tallest office towers, and put honor aside in order to do whatever it takes to ensure their own survival – and that of all the Green Bones of Kekon.
Jade War is the second book of the Green Bone Saga, an epic trilogy about family, honor, and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.
I read the first book in this trilogy, Jade City, last year and I thought it was fantastic. I’m looking forward to this second book, but I’m waiting for the paperback edition to come out so it matches my paperback copy of the first one. Ridiculous, I know, but I already have so many books on the docket, and this one can wait for a bit.
One thought on “Goodreads Monday: Jade War”
Jade City is high on my own TBR. I cannot wait to read it! I’m holding on to it until it’s my turn to select our next Science Fiction/Fantasy book club book. I think it will be great for a group discussion. But I am a bit wary about introducing a series– we have yet to continue series together.
