Around The World In 80 Pages | The City of Brass by S.A. Chakraborty | Daevabad

Well hellooooo, my globe-trotting friends! ‘Tis I, your trusty tour guide, Lila! I see that your wanderlust has not been sated by the wonders of this world–you all look like you’re ready for a taste of some more fictional and fantastical settings. Well, worry no more–I’m just the gal you’re looking for! In my segment, Around The World in 80 Pages, I’ll be guiding you on tours of the most mystical and magical of literary lands! We’ll begin our adventure immediately, just come closer, step right up…


Today’s journey will take us to Daevabad, the ancient, magical, Middle Eastern citadel which serves as the center of the world of djinn! To get into this city, we must take a magical ferry across the cursed lake which surrounds the city–a lake which is said to have been cursed by the ancient Marid themselves! A wondrous and beautiful city, Daevabad was built by the Daeva race of djinn, with help from the Marid, but quickly became home to all races of djinn. The city is now divided into sectors in which each tribe resides, which surround a market and a general city area. In addition, Daevabad is home to the grand palace, which is the residence of the king of all djinn! I invite you to explore this mystical city in all its glory…
