Description

THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE REVOLUTIONARY DARK STAR TRILOGY IS HERE!

Booker Prize-winner Marlon James once again draws on a rich tradition of African mythology and fantasy to imagine a mythic world, a lost child, a 177-year-old witch and a mystery with many answers …

*Perfect f or fans of Pratchett, George R. R. Martin and Octavia Butler*

‘Even more gripping and inventive than its predecessor … like Tolkien on ayahuasca’ Observer

*****

Part adventure, part chronicle of an indomitable woman - the witch Sogolon - who bows to no man, this is an unforgettable exploration of power, personality, and the places where they overlap, set in a world at once ancient and startlingly modern.

In the words of Neil Gaiman, James has created ‘a fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter’s’.

Chronicling the same events but telling a very different story - who will you believe? Read THE DARK STAR TRILOGY in any order! Book one, BLACK LEOPARD, RED WOLF , is available now.

*****

‘Moving, vivid, and thought-provoking … brilliant’ Buzzfeed

‘James masterfully flips the first instalment on its head … [A] titanic story of empire, adventure and power’ Esquire

‘Told with James’ inimitable linguistic verve … Riotous, ultraviolent, dazzlingly inventive’ Literary Hub
