"For what does it profit a man to gain the whole world, but lose his own soul? She'll have to do it, however, without her magical healing abilities. In The City of Brass, there were times where it felt like the plot was halted at times for politics and for characters to learn and understand what was going on.

I still give kudos to Shannon for writing in a setting other than your typical medieval Europe. Plot [ ] The series is a multi-generational saga that covers a twenty-year span from 1990 to 2010, and follows one family as it arises out of the ruins of the that wreaked havoc on the Korean economy, becoming one of the top conglomerates in the nation.
Overall the book did feel strangely paced - the actual archaeological discovery seemed to take up such a small part of the book compared to others in th I think I'm leaning closer to 3.
