"P. Djèlí Clark couldn't write a bad book if he tried. Ring Shout is fantastically fun even as its core is as serious as can be." --Victor LaValle"Ring Shout is a wild ride into America's nightmarish history, a fantastical cross between Ralph Ellison's Invisible Man and Buffy the Vampire Slayer." --Annalee Newitz "Slyly told and laced with dark humor, this haunting tale pulled me into a richly realized world I didn't want to leave." --Rivers Solomon "Ring Shout is a fearless punch to the heart and head!" --Jonathan Maberry "A sublime work of revolutionary body horror." --Sarah Gailey "Brutal and hopeful, farcical and factual, Ring Shout is a book that speaks to the ridiculous and beastly nature of racism in a story that is difficult to put down." --Justina Ireland "From the start, Ring Shout explodes into vivid color with a voice that's at once joyous and harrowing." --Bethany C. Morrow "A thrilling and provocative inferno of a story. One of the most powerful and propulsive pieces of speculative fiction I've read in years." --Tochi Onyebuchi "Feverishly inventive period adventure.... At once rousing, boisterous, and clever." --Kirkus Reviews, starred review "Readers will be both captivated and entertained by this fast-paced alternate history, which doubles as a meditation on the all-consuming power of hate and violence." --Publishers Weekly, starred review "This is a story of Black female power, drawn from both the old and new worlds, a tale that honors the Black American experience in all its complexity, and yet also delivers in its Lovecraftian delight." --Library Journal, starred review "Clark's latest is set in a visceral world, steeped in historical detail and full of engaging characters, that asks the question, 'Who is to blame for the hate that hate made?'." --Booklist, starred review
