Staff Pick: Kristi on Jade City by Fonda Lee


The Godfather meets Asia meets magic. Jade City takes us to Kekon, a small island nation struggling to make its way into the 21st century and take its place in the world after years of war and invasion. Run by powerful Green Bone families, Kekon has one thing everyone wants: Jade and the ability to wield its magic. With a new drug making the rounds that allows anyone, even foreigners, to use jade magic and political strife between the Kaul and Ayt families, Kekon is about to be shaken to its very core.

Fonda Lee makes her debut into adult fantasy fiction with this fresh and exciting new world. And don’t forget to watch for book 2 of the Green Bones Saga: Jade War out in hardcover May 2019!
