Reviews

"Exuberant contemporary fantasy series opener....a serpentine, high-intensity celebration of Black culture, history, and power." --Publishers Weekly

"The extensive worldbuilding incorporates West African, Caribbean, and Black American history and cultures to explain a magical reality hidden from view and relevant to the Black diaspora and Malik's family history....A well-thought-out magical world that provocatively centers Black experiences." --Kirkus Reviews
