What We're Reading

The City of Brass
S. A. Chakraborty

On the streets of Cairo, Nahri knows better than anyone that the trade she uses to get by are all tricks, sleights of hand, learned skills; a means to the delightful end of swindling Ottoman nobles. But when she accidentally summons a 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.
