Description

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, honour and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.

Review quote

Lee's astute worldbuilding raises the stakes for her vivid and tautly-described action scenes

A sharp and insightful new voice

OMG. Take my money. I have loved everything Fonda Lee has written and this new book has me salivating

Fonda Lee's stories do not pull their punches. They resonate with hard hits and fast revelations. At the same time, the bigger picture is always in view, and Lee's stories are firmly in the realm of deeply introspective, fast moving tales that will stay with the reader long after the book is done

Stylish and action-packed, full of ambitious families and guilt-ridden loves, Jade City is an epic drama reminiscent of the best classic Hong Kong gangster films but takes place in a fantasy metropolis so gritty and well-imagined that you'll forget you're reading a book
