GALAXY BOOKSELLER PICK ----- Two crime families, one source of power: jade. Jade is the lifeblood of the city of Janloon. The stone enhances a warrior’s natural strength and speed. Jade is mined, traded, stolen and killed for, controlled by the ruthless. Well crafted and well written, this is a great little read! Think: 80s kung fu movie (but with substance) meets urban fantasy in a dark alley, then drown it in ancient myth and magic, and you're on the right track. Craig Slater

-----

Two crime families, one source of power: Jade.

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.

Fonda Lee is a black belt martial artist, a former corporate strategist, and action movie aficionado. Born and raised in Calgary, Canada, she now lives in Portland, Oregon with her family. Lee is the award-winning author of the YA science fiction novels Zeroboxer and Exo; Jade City is her adult debut.


Lee's astute worldbuilding raises the stakes for her vivid and tautly-described action scenes A sharp and insightful new voice OMG. Take my money. I have loved everything Fonda Lee has written and this new book has me salivating Fonda Lee's stories do not pull their punches. They resonate with hard hits and fast revelations. At the same time, the bigger picture is always in view, and Lee's stories are firmly in the realm of deeply introspective, fast moving tales that will stay with the reader long after the book is done
