Reviews
"An electrifying journey of legacy, horror, and African lore. Devour will grip your soul at the roots."-- "Orlando Jones"
"Gripping and imaginative horror with a twist on the West African Anansi mythology. Devour has engaging characters and outstanding graphics leading to a devastating climax."-- "Tananarive Due, coauthor of The Keeper"
"Anansi's magic and his treachery come to American shores. Devour is a tale of horror, history, and family magic--both its risks and its rewards. This story is full of blood and brutality, it's an epic tale that goes back to the earliest times and forward into the future."-- "Victor LaValle, author of The Changeling"
"Black ancestral trauma energizes a clever twist on Anansi, who is a different being in the hands of each storyteller. Stories, after all, are the key . . . you'll be appalled, you'll be absorbed, you'll devour this book."-- "Nalo Hopkinson, coauthor of DC's House of Whispers"
