Moon Witch, Spider King - Dark Star Trilogy 2 (Hardback)Marlon James (author)
- 10+ in stock
Suffused with African folklore and exquisite, lyrical prose, the incandescent sequel to Marlon James' Black Leopard, Red Wolf revolves around the formidable witch Sogolon and the riddle of a lost child.
In this mighty follow-up to his #1 bestseller Black Leopard, Red Wolf, Man Booker-winner Marlon James once again draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine a mythic world, a lost child, a 177-year-old witch, a deadly regal chancellor, and a mystery with many answers...
Part adventure tale, 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.
