Beasts Made of Night was the Nigerian-inspired fantasy from debut author Tochi Onyebuchi that wowed readers this fall. It’s the story of Taj, a young and talented aki or sin-eater, who finds himself in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy that threatens the princess whom he loves… and maybe even his own life. Readers fell in love with the world building, the character development, and the elements of Nigerian folklore.
We are here to bring you the cover of the sequel, Crown of Thunder! Read a bit about the book below, and then check out the amazing cover (which is a beautiful complement to Beasts Made of Night, we might add)!
About the book:
Black Panther meets Nnedi Okorafor’s Akata Witch in Crown of Thunder, the second book in an epic fantasy duology and the thrilling follow up to Beasts Made of Night. Author Tochi Onyebuchi drew from his cultural roots to craft the world of Kos, a Nigerian-influenced setting that is at once unique and compelling. He was inspired by his love of comic books and his social justice work to write Beasts, which seamlessly weaves the magical concept of sin-eating with a powerful exploration of justice and guilt. Picking up in the middle of the action, right where Beasts Made of Night left off, Crown of Thunder finds Taj on the run. He’s escaped Kos, but Queen Karima will go to any means necessary–including using the most deadly magic–to track him down.
