Green Jay Lake read online review & book description:

Acclaimed author Jay Lake has created a remarkable character in Green, and evokes a remarkable world in this novel. Green and her struggle to survive and find her own past will live in the reader's mind for a long time after closing the book.

She was born in poverty, in a dusty village under the equatorial sun. She does not remember her mother, she does not remember her own name—her earliest clear memory is of the day her father sold her to the tall pale man. In the Court of the Pomegranate Tree, where she was taught the ways of a courtesan…and the skills of an assassin…she was named Emerald, the precious jewel of the Undying Duke's collection of beauties.

She calls herself Green.

The world she inhabits is one of political power and magic, where Gods meddle in the affairs of mortals. At the center of it is the immortal Duke's city of Copper Downs, which controls all the trade on the Storm Sea. Green has made many enemies, and some secret friends, and she has become a very dangerous woman indeed.

  • Begins transcendent but descends to banal

    The first sections are full of breathtaking imagery and compact description and fully pulled me in. The first half kept my interest even as the power of the language waned. But the second half became a slog, filled with obvious plot twists and a lack of passion. Left me wishing I'd stopped after Green's first fully realized memories.
  • Great book

    I very much enjoyed this book and would eagerly read a sequel. The protagonist is intriguing and the world is full of nuance.
