Summary

Two crime families, one source of power: Jade.

Shortlisted for the Nebula Awards 2018

Shortlisted for the Locus Awards 2018

An Amazon.com Best Book of the Month

Jade is the lifeblood of the city of Janloon - a stone that enhances a warrior's natural strength and speed. Jade is mined, traded, stolen and killed for, controlled by the ruthless No Peak and Mountain families.

When a modern drug emerges that allows anyone - even foreigners - to wield jade, simmering tension between the two families erupts into open violence. The outcome of this clan war will determine the fate of all in the families, from their grandest patriarch to even the lowliest motorcycle runner on the streets.

Jade City is an epic tale of blood, family, honour, and of those who live and die by ancient laws in a changing world.

Absolutely Brilliant Story

I just wish I had found this book sooner. Brilliant start to a trilogy. Great characters that you can invest in and story that grips you and dosent let go. The narrator is brilliant and brings the story to. Now straight on to the second book. I won't be disappointed
