But if you’ve read the series, and especially, The Empire of Gold, you’ll know the heartache and book hangover that ensued after finishing. I don’t really have anything, I think this maybe could have been a bit drawn out in places, but I can’t say that made me hesitant to continue reading and I love the way that one of these storylines could lead to something quite different if the author chose to go in that direction. Sure to get himself in trouble, Ali is both wonderful and flawed: willing and able to see the cultural horrors perpetuated against the Shafit (half human/half djinn inhabitants of Daevebad), yet unable to see his own prejudices against the Deava (an oppressed djinn race who has their own complicated past plus a tie to the murderous Nahids).

Most of the plot I loved, but there is a lot of time where my favourite characters are apart and I wanted more time with them together. Maybe not perfect, but a fantastic, triumphant end to a series that captured my heart and imagination.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. A series that lives long beyond its final page, I am delighted to discover that Chakaborty is already picking up the pen again. There’s a lot of similarities between them in this respect, they both straddle two distinct worlds (Ali with the Marid and the Djinn, Nahri with her human and Daeva heritage) so it was interesting to see them embracing the sides of their heritage that they’ve not necessarily ignored but been unable to explore fully up till this point. In a world where such complications brew the ending is sure to be bittersweet, heartbreaking, and bloody. But it does promise that things will be better, and that’s about as good an ending as I can hope for.

And then there are political considerations, (would you be with someone from the family that murdered large numbers of your people? It’s everything you could want in the conclusion to a trilogy, with heartache, beauty, and excitement to spare. 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. Go Soo and Park Geun-hyung reunited with each other after they worked in another SBS TV series Marrying A Millionaire where Park played father of Go Soo's character, Lee Yo-won reunited with Park for the 3rd time in this series after they worked first in another SBS TV series Surgeon Bong Dal-hee and second in KBS series Cruel Love. Chakraborty uses her time wisely because while the bigger plot may not be moving forward, the characters are growing quite a bit.This trilogy is set in a fantasy version of the Middle East, a backdrop to conflict between a large cast of humanoid magical creatures. The thing is, both have their pluses, both have their minuses and it gives a new meaning ‘to the grass always being greener’ – because maybe it isn’t. The series is a multi-generational saga that covers a twenty-year span from 1990 to 2010, and follows one chaebol family as it arises out of the ruins of the 1990s IMF financial crisis that wreaked havoc on the Korean economy, becoming one of the top conglomerates in the nation. The characters come full circle, each flawed and yet ultimately well meaning (well, except Manizheh).

She portrays a particularly oppressive state, with a system designed to crush resistance, and places within it people who are willing to fight for justice. There are reasons why I hate The Red Rising qnd Throne of Glass series so much, and this way of writing plot twists is one of them 😤 So I’m not going to forgive S. Nahri has grown so much from the girl we met at the start of the City of Brass, and honestly, I cannot think of a way in which her arc could have ended any more perfectly. After the ultimate cliff-hanger that was THE KINGDOM OF COPPER’s final chapter, THE EMPIRE OF GOLD thankfully picks up immediately where that last book left off, and so begins a compelling story which weaves magic,. In part because of the methods being used, because of the history, but also because the plan had been to invade and win, with apparently little consideration for what was to follow.Especially because I knew there was no reason for them to be sad, so I just wanted to jump into the book and tell them everything was fine. I would have liked a little more time with some of the characters post story but I guess that’s what fanfiction is for haha. Throughout the novel, we see the ways in which the past, both recent and distant, is something of a prison for the characters.
