The second novel in Marlon James’s revolutionary DARK STAR TRILOGY is here

In this mighty follow-up to his Number 1 bestseller Black Leopard, Red Wolf , Man Booker-winner Marlon James once again draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine a mythic world, a lost child, a 177-year-old witch, a deadly regal chancellor, and a mystery with many answers…

Part adventure tale, 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’.
