Jade Legacy

In this sequel to Jade War, the world finally learns the supernatural powers of jade—the prized mineral of the Green Bone clans (especially the rival No Peak and Mountain families), who have long used it to fight one another for control in the metropolis of Kekon. Now that jade’s secret is out, others are eyeing the magical stones (militaries, mercenaries—even medical and entertainment industries). With foreign governments and local divisive factions beginning to barter and battle for jade, the futures of Kekon and the Green Bones (especially the Kaul family) are not guaranteed. As a new generation of Green Bones comes of age, the clans locked in a forever war may need to look for allies they never wanted, lest their way of life and their country not survive. Spanning 20 years of conflict, martial arts action, family dynamics, and moral choices, this epic takes the existing character arcs, rich East Asian–inspired worldbuilding, and intense drama to the edge—and jumps. Lee’s storytelling is masterful and will leave readers heartbroken and hopeful.
VERDICT Blood, loyalty, and lives are gained and lost in the powerful finale of the “Green Bone Saga.” Lee’s series will stand as a pillar of epic fantasy and family drama.
