Do you think you’d like to have a super power? Anything specific? I almost always want super powers (like flying, reading minds, ability to be invisible, super healing power) Some times I don’t think I could bear the burden of a super power though. . 🧞‍♂️ I’m currently working on my reread of the “Daevabad Trilogy” right now in preparation for the release of “The Empire of Gold”  and thinking about Nahri and her abilities are what made me add healing to my list of super powers.(even though my feelings about Nahri are mixed. Haha) Stories of the djinn are some of my favorite stories, and I love the world and the details that author SA Chakraborty has built into these books. (Even though these are classified as adult fantasy I still feel like they have a nice YA vibe that makes it good reading for younger ages, too) . 🧞‍♂️ Even though I’ve pictured “The Empire of Gold” today, I’m putting the synopsis of book one, “City of Brass” below for anyone who hasn’t started this series. What are you reading today? . 🧞‍♂️ Synopsis: Nahri has never believed in magic. Certainly, she has power; on the streets of 18th century Cairo, she’s a con woman of unsurpassed talent. But she knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by—palm readings, zars, healings—are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles. But when Nahri accidentally summons an equally sly, darkly mysterious djinn warrior to her side during one of her cons, she’s forced to accept that the magical world she thought only existed in childhood stories is real. For the warrior tells her a new tale: 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 hawks are not what they seem, lies Daevabad, the legendary city of brass, a city to which Nahri is irrevocably bound. In that city, behind gilded brass walls laced with enchantments, behind the six gates of the six djinn tribes, old resentments are simmering. And when Nahri decides to enter this world, she learns that true power is fierce and brutal.
