Hello Gemmies! I have new literary news to share with you today. Peacock has announced development for a drama series based on the first novel in The Green Bone Saga, Jade City by Fonda Lee. Dave Kalstein will write and executive produce the show and Breck Eisner will also serve as executive producer.
Synopsis of Jade City from Goodreads:
The Kaul family is one of two crime syndicates that control the island of Kekon. It's the only place in the world that produces rare magical jade, which grants those with the right training and heritage superhuman abilities.
The Green Bone clans of honorable jade-wearing warriors once protected the island from foreign invasion--but nowadays, in a bustling post-war metropolis full of fast cars and foreign money, Green Bone families like the Kauls are primarily involved in commerce, construction, and the everyday upkeep of the districts under their protection.
When the simmering tension between the Kauls and their greatest rivals erupts into open violence in the streets, the outcome of this clan war will determine the fate of all Green Bones and the future of Kekon itself.
I cannot wait for this show to come to fruition. Published by Orbit, Jade City is available for purchase from all major booksellers. Are you looking forward to reading this book and seeing this show? Let me know by leaving a comment below. Happy Reading!
