    THE SECOND NOVEL IN THE REVOLUTIONARY DARK STAR TRILOGY IS HERE!

    Booker Prize-winner Marlon James once again draws on a rich tradition of African mythology and fantasy to imagine a mythic world, a lost child, a 177-year-old witch and a mystery with many answers . . .

    *Perfect for fans of Pratchett, George R. R. Martin and Octavia Butler*

    'Even more gripping and inventive than its predecessor . . . like Tolkien on ayahuasca' Observer

    *****

    Part adventure, 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'.

    Chronicling the same events but telling a very different story - who will you believe? Read THE DARK STAR TRILOGY in any order! Book one, BLACK LEOPARD, RED WOLF, is available now.

    *****

    'Moving, vivid, and thought-provoking . . . brilliant' Buzzfeed

    'James masterfully flips the first instalment on its head . . . [A] titanic story of empire, adventure and power' Esquire

    'Told with James' inimitable linguistic verve . . . Riotous, ultraviolent, dazzlingly inventive' Literary Hub
