Jade City (The Green Bone Saga)

Jade City (The Green Bone Saga)

"I suggested Jade City to my roommate a while back and as she was reading it I just heard her shout, 'What the f--?!' That's Jade City, one of the best urban fantasy books I've read and now one of my favorite books in general. Lee draws from Asian history, cultures, and myths to create a city that's recognizable, yet fantastic: part Hong Kong, part Tokyo, part Chinatown, part classic kung fu movie. Reading it is like watching the latest Marvel movie, but better. Or like watching Ghost in 
the Shell
but featuring actual Asian people."

Four siblings battle rival clans for honor and power in an Asia-inspired fantasy metropolis. JADE CITY is an epic saga reminiscent of The Godfather with magic and kungfu, NOMINATED FOR THE NEBULA AWARD FOR BEST NOVEL AND THE LOCUS AWARD FOR BEST FANTASY NOVEL OF 2017. Jade is the lifeblood of the island of Kekon. It has been mined, traded, stolen, and killed for -- and for centuries, honorable Green Bone warriors like the Kaul family have used it to enhance their magical abilities and defend the island from foreign invasion. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 13.0px Times; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Now, the war is over and a new generation of Kauls vies for control of Kekon's bustling capital city. They care about nothing but protecting their own, cornering the jade market, and defending the districts under their protection. Ancient tradition has little place in this rapidly changing nation. When a powerful new drug emerges that lets anyone -- even foreigners -- wield jade, the simmering tension between the Kauls and the rival Ayt family erupts into open violence. The outcome of this clan war will determine the fate of all Green Bones -- from their grandest patriarch to the lowliest motorcycle runner on the streets -- and of Kekon itself. p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} p.p1 {margin: 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px 0.0px; font: 14.0px Calibri; -webkit-text-stroke: #000000} span.s1 {font-kerning: none} Jade City is the first novel in an epic trilogy about family, honor, and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.
