'We are different ages, genders, tribes, tongues, and traditions ... but tonight we all SLAY'

Black Panther meets Ready Player One. A fierce teen game developer battles a real-life troll intent on ruining the Black Panther-inspired video game she created and the safe community it represents for black gamers.

By day, seventeen-year-old Kiera Johnson is a college student, and one of the only black kids at Jefferson Academy. By night, she joins hundreds of thousands of black gamers who duel worldwide in the secret online role-playing card game, SLAY.

No one knows Kiera is the game developer - not even her boyfriend, Malcolm. But when a teen in Kansas City is murdered over a dispute in the SLAY world, the media labels it an exclusionist, racist hub for thugs.

With threats coming from both inside and outside the game, Kiera must fight to save the safe space she's created. But can she protect SLAY without losing herself?

“Absolutley Necessary”

I was going to give this book 3 stars because it was a 3.5 for me and I generally round down. But then I remembered I'm a 28 year old white British woman and that means this book is not for me.

What a strong, powerful read. Slay has a powerful black female character at the forefront of this story and does not hold back the punches on the points she wants to make.
I loved 17 yr old Keira from the start, but... More

I found the first 100 pages a rather slow read, however it is worth sticking with it.
