Recently, I’ve been having a bad streak of luck in reading SFF books; many of them do have awesome action scenes and original world-building, but they miss one feature that matters most to me, stupendous characterizations. I'm very curious how the next book will be written and especially how some particular events will unfold. Jade War is the second book of the Green Bone Saga, an epic trilogy about family, honour and those who live and die by the ancient laws of blood and jade.

Violent feuds and combat are abundant, but we also see the various characters and their relationships mature amazingly in this book. Fonda Lee is the World Fantasy Award-winning author of the epic Green Bone Saga, beginning with Jade City and continuing in Jade War and Jade Legacy.

And while this book most certainly could not be described with such terms, it moves in that direction and I appreciated that change in focus. I especially admire her character work in Jade War, which has a number of heartbreaking scenes that will stay with me for a very long time. She has an abortion after realizing that she cannot place her personal life ahead of clan matters, but does not inform Maro of this choice. Based on the ending of Jade City, the beginning of this book was a little slower because the action came to a plot induced slowdown that needed to be slowly ramped up again.

Jade War is urban epic fantasy at its best, and Lee has cemented The Green Bone Saga as one of my favorite ongoing series with a groundbreaking impact. I liked the characters in Jade City, but Jade War made me love them – the characters’ stories are incredible, well-paced, and true to their developments. Jade War was nominated for the Dragon Award for Best Fantasy Novel, the Aurora Award for Best Novel, the Ignyte Award for Best Novel - Adult, and the Locus Award for Best Fantasy Novel. Until a few of my friends decided to start this trilogy and we ended up buddy reading this book, which helped me out a lot since I forgot almost everything and the recap I read wasn't enough to cover everything.of the book is talking about things to come, setting up stakes and tension; the problem is the payoff is extremely poor in the majority of cases. Jade War certainly didn't suffer from the second book syndrome and while I honestly can't compare it to its precedent, this installment made me want to read whatever Lee publishes next (other than Jade Legacy). One of my favorite aspects about this series is how well-done the multi-POV was especially given how fast the timeline goes. From the plight of refugees created by proxy wars and used as bargain chips, to the trickle down persecution of Kekonese immigrants in Espenia, this is real life recreated.
