Magic is power but honor is everything
Jade is the lifeblood of the island of Kekon. It has been mined, traded, stolen, and killed for-and for centuries, honorable Green Bone warriors, like the Kaul family, have used it to enhance their magical abilities and defend the island from foreign invasion. The Kauls care about nothing but protecting their own, cornering the jade market, and defending the districts under their protection.
When a powerful new drug emerges that lets anyone-even foreigners-wield jade, the simmering tension between the Kauls and the rival Ayt family erupts into open violence. The outcome of this clan war will determine the fate of all Green Bones-from their grandest patriarch to the lowliest motorcycle runner on the streets-and of Kekon itself.
"An epic drama reminiscent of the best classic Hong Kong gangster films but set in a fantasy metropolis so gritty and well-imagined that you'll forget you're reading a book."--Ken Liu, winner of the Hugo, Nebula, and World Fantasy Awards"
