Product Description

An epic fable drenched in African mythology. This is work that both meets the immersive worldbuilding standard in books by Tolkien and Martin and brings to the genre a voice unlike anything seen before . . . It sets readers up for what will undoubtedly be a superb finaleBooker winner James's African-inspired imaginary kingdoms mark the series out from the usual run of epic fantasies, but his uniquely supple, powerful style is even more distinctiveBlack Leopard, Red Wolf and Moon Witch, Spider King are wildly inventive, genre-defining works of fiction on the level of The Lord Of The Rings and the Broken Earth trilogy that deserve to be studied, dissected, and argued overAn exhilarating tour de force . . . [James] establishes a new vision for the trilogy as a whole and confirms Dark Star as a true epicMoving, vivid, and thought-provoking . . . brilliantJames cements his status as a wildly inventive and lyrical storytellerJames masterfully flips the first instalment on its head . . . [A] titanic story of empire, adventure and powerTold with James' inimitable linguistic verve . . . Riotous, ultraviolent, dazzlingly inventive

A fantasy world as well-realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter's

James once again shattered my expectations . . . Moon Witch, Spider King is a breathtaking book, one that functions as well as a standalone as it does a sequel . . . This is a novel that begs to be read in one sittingEven more gripping and inventive than its predecessor . . . like Tolkien on ayahuascaThis novel's prose style, inspired by the grammar of African languages, has an intoxicating swagger and energyJames is one of the finest writers at work today, and Moon Witch, Spider King is a complex, enthralling novel. It is also utterly uncompromising, a book which the reader must meet on its own termsA fantastical epic that draws on African mythologyAn imaginative story that advances the trilogy in a satisfying way, deepening and expanding an already epic world

In this stunning follow-up to Black Leopard, Red Wolf, Marlon James draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine an ancient world, a lost child, an extraordinary hunter, and a mystery with many answers...
Marlon James weaves a tapestry of breathtaking adventure through a world at once ancient and startlingly modern. And, against this exhilarating backdrop of magic and violence, he explores the fundamentals of truth, the limits of power, the excesses of ambition, and our need to understand them all.
