Product description


Jade City has it all: a beautifully realized setting, a great cast of characters, and dramatic action scenes. What a fun, gripping read!--Ann Leckie, author of the Hugo, Nebula, and Arthur C. Clarke Award winning novel Ancillary Justice

Jade City is an addictive read with intense martial arts action and high-stakes character drama. I'll never look at jade the same way again.--Beth Cato, author of Breath of Earth and The Clockwork Dagger

Jade City is an instantly absorbing tale of blood, honor, family and magic, spiced with unexpectedly tender character beats.--NPR

A sweeping saga of ambition, loyalty, and family in a gritty, densely-imagined island city. Fonda Lee explores the tension between what is owed to family, country, and yourself in a high-stakes, high-octane game of power and control.--p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000}span.s1 {font-kerning: none}Tina Connolly, Nebula-nominated author of Ironskin

An absolutely blistering read. The characters are perfectly three dimensional. The plot is thrilling and the action sequences are damn near perfect.... I cannot recommend Jade City highly enough.--The Eloquent Page

An ambitious statement.... Unforgettable.--Book Page

An atmospheric, gritty noir tale of family loyalties, martial arts and power struggles in a city that feels so real it becomes a character in its own right. Jade City is epic drama writ large.--Aliette de Bodard, winner of the Nebula, Locus, and British Science Fiction Awards

An intriguing confluence of history, culture, and biology.... It'll be interesting to see what course Lee charts next.--Kirkus

As this ambitious and complex story unfolds, Lee (Exo) skillfully juggles a huge cast. Her action scenes are flashy, brutal, and cinematic, while the family dynamics hold their own weight and significance. This is an engaging blend of crime drama and Asian martial arts film tropes.... an intense, satisfying experience.--Publishers Weekly

Compelling characters and intricate worldbuilding.... I want to spend more time in Kekon.--Hank Green
