"Perfect for fans of Divergent and Black Panther." --In Touch Weekly

"A Fascinating Dystopian Page-Turner" --The Root

"Nubia: The Awakening is a story with a familiar sci-fi trope of dystopian futures but is done in a revolutionary way that brings diversity, camaraderie and familiarity to the forefront." --MadameNoire

"This novel offers a powerful critique of capitalism, classism, and racial injustice . . . [and] combines a high-action plot with engaging characters and will keep readers on the edge of their seats. VERDICT: A complex dystopian novel that will circulate well with fans of Black Panther, Tomi Adeyemi, and Roseanne A. Brown." --School Library Journal

"Epps and Haynes' characters are admirable; each of the narrators is given agency and motivation in a way that makes them memorable in their own right . . . Readers will find plenty of familiar sf and fantasy tropes here, but these are made fresh by the story highlighting the power of the African diaspora." --Booklist

"Epps and Haynes skillfully build emotional and narrative suspense by weaving the cast members' conflicting needs and expectations into an explosive adventure." --Publishers Weekly

"A justifiable critique of today." --Kirkus Reviews
