Like, that's kind of what the book is about? Not sure I like this headline business.
Anyway, Jade City was an impressive story to me. Solid 8/10. You've got an island setting with two rival mafia factions and the tenuous balance between them. You have people who, when touching jade, develop superhuman powers; faster reflexes, harder bodies, strength, even blasting people with...the force? Not sure on that last one.
I loved the fact that it's set in an asian-type world. So much on my fantasy lately has been the standard old bread and butter, so this was a nice breath of fresh air. The fact that I grew up in a culture quite similar made it all that more enjoyable. The characters are strong, each with their own motives and desires, and none of them are perfect. There's no real good guys or bad guys, everyone's out to protect what they own, and them maybe a side of revenge as well.
All in all, looking forward to reading book 2.
