Lost Gods (2018)
(Lost Gods , book 1)
Micah Yongo
"Lost Gods is a fully immersive experience which made me a fan again. It made me seriously take my time, soak in its prose, get lost in this fully realized, rich and vital world, and get whisked along in its adventure. Micah Yongo pays respect to his elders, like Charles Saunders, while defining a space for himself in the pantheon of great sword & sorcery (sword & soul!). He is a griot, a true storyteller, coming into his own."

The Black God's Drums (2018)
P Djèlí Clark
"This mashup of history and culture has been perfectly distilled into a world fully realized and authentic. AU-THEN-TIC. Down to the sounds and tastes. Clark is a griot of the first order and The Black God's Drums is a call from the ancestors, an invitation to join in with them to celebrate story."
