The cover of Jace City includes this subtitle: Family is Duty. Magic is Power. Honor is Everything. These are the core principles in the world Fonda Lee has created in Jade City. It’s a world readers will recognize. The names of places and car brands are different. The 1950’s technology is familiar. And the structure of municipal government has taken a left turn somewhere. But one doesn’t need a glossary to keep track. The main difference between our world and Jade City is the power of jade. In this novel, some people are immune to jade, some are adversely affected, and some derive physical power from the stone—the more stones, the more power.
I got lost in this novel from day one. I would recommend this to readers of speculative fiction, fantasy, paranormal or sci fi readers. I would also recommend it to anyone who loves a great action and adventure story. For example, if you love The Godfather, this book is for you. If you love Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, this book is for you. The good news is that there are 3 books in this series! Five Stars. #23for23
