From the New York Times bestselling author of Black Leopard, Red Wolf—a National Book Award finalist—comes Moon Witch, Spider King, the second book in the Dark Star trilogy James has dubbed his “African Game of Thrones.”
In Black Leopard, Red Wolf, Sogolon the Moon Witch proved a worthy adversary to Tracker as they clashed across a mythical African landscape in search of a mysterious boy who disappeared. In Moon Witch, Spider King, Sogolon takes center stage and gives her own account of what happened to the boy, and how she plotted and fought, triumphed, and failed as she looked for him. Part adventure tale, part chronicle of an indomitable woman who bows to no man, it is a fascinating novel that explores power, personality, and the places where they overlap. Whether read before or after Black Leopard, Red Wolf, Moon Witch, Spider King stands on its own as a dizzying, delirious adventure into an all-encompassing world.
James is also the author of the Booker Prize-winning A Brief History of Seven Killings and The Book of Night Women and John Crow’s Devil. His novels have won the American Book Award and the Los Angeles Times’ Ray Bradbury Prize for Science Fiction, among others.
