Summary

The Philip K. Dick Award-winning steampunk series continues as past and future collide?and the world itself may be altered forever. 
 
Years ago, a madman from the future assassinated the beloved Queen Victoria?an act which inadvertently thrust England into a technological age beyond anything ever imagined. But that same event is about to change history for a second time, when a renowned scientist attempts an experiment on the assassin’s time-travelling suit. 
 
The ill-fated experiment unleashes a wave of chaos and conflicting timelines. The bizarre results include blood red snow falling from the sky, and the adventurer Sir Richard Burton receiving terrible visions of alternate realities that are unavoidable and yet changeable. Time and reality may have just reached their breaking point. 
 
But most disturbing of all, the legendary Spring Heeled Jack has returned?in several different places at the same time! These numerous “Jacks” are all very confused, very irritable, and very dangerous . . . and they are all looking for Sir Richard Burton.

    NAMED ONE OF THE BEST BOOKS OF THE YEAR BY Library Journal | Vulture | The Verge | SYFYWire 
    Step into The City of Brass, the spellbinding debut from S. A. Chakraborty perfect for fans of The Golem and the Jinni, The Grace of Kings, and Uprooted, in which the future of a magical Middle Eastern kingdom rests in the hands of a clever and defiant young con artist with miraculous healing gifts.  
    On the streets of eighteenth-century Cairo, Nahri is a con woman of unsurpassed skill. She makes her living swindling Ottoman nobles, hoping to one day earn enough to change her fortunes. But when Nahri accidentally summons Dara, an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior, during one of her cons, she learns that even the cleverest of schemes can have deadly consequences.  
    Forced to flee Cairo, Dara and Nahri journey together across hot, windswept sands teeming with creatures of fire and rivers where the mythical marid sleep, past ruins of once-magnificent human metropolises and mountains where the circling birds of prey are more than what they seem, to Daevabad, the legendary city of brass.  
    It’s a city steeped in magic and fire, where blood can be as dangerous as any spell; a city where old resentments run deep and the royal court rules with a tenuous grip; a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound—and where her very presence threatens to ignite a war that has been simmering for centuries.
