- Seriously, Gramps was so annoying! Leave Tristan alone.
- I loved how all of the folktale stories came together in this tale. I definitely want to find and learn the original myths for myself.
- "Power, boy! It's all about power. You control the story, you control the narrative, you control power." (Pg. 325)
- Even with specific descriptions and details, some monsters were too difficult to visualize. Illustrations would have been helpful or less creative monsters. 🤷🏾♀️ Lol
- Most of world building is wonderfully done with strong imagery. Readers fall into this surprising, beautiful, strange world along with Tristan and like Tristan we hang on for one HELL of a ride.
- This book has everything you need for the perfect fantasy adventure story.
- The characters are a bit caricature but it works. They're so unique and so much fun! Gum-baby is my fave! Such a hoot! 😂😂
- The ending was well done. Great closure while setting up for book 2.
- Would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys fantasy-adventure and is curious about African and African-American folklore and legends.
Have you read this one? Or would you now based on my rant?
