Review

Praise for Beasts of Ruin:

“This
stellar sequel deepens these beautifully realized main characters and keeps you wanting more stories in this world.” —Buzzfeed

★ “
Readers will be entranced as themes of heritage, betrayal, and erasure are brought to life with vivid details in this riveting, fast-paced volume that lives up to its predecessor. . . An absorbing story with tantalizing hints of more to come.” —Kirkus Reviews, starred review

“Gray’s
lush and detailed worldbuilding remains a highlight as the sequel delves even deeper into the history and heritage of Lkossa and its surrounding kingdom.” —Paste Magazine

Well-crafted and engaging. . . Beasts of Prey and Beasts are Ruin are riveting reads that should hold great appeal for teenage readers, especially fans of Black Panther and The Hunger Games.” —The Atlanta Journal-Constitution

Beasts of Ruin, like its predecessor, is filled with action and tension. There are fights, spells, chases, twists, betrayals, a wicked villain and fantastical creatures throughout the novel’s short, punchy chapters. She weaves African myths and legends of frightening creatures like the kongamato into her narrative, and explores the impact of discrimination and cultural erasure.” —Arkansas Democrat Gazette

“[A] tale of
courage, curiosity, and magic.”—SHEEN Magazine

“Gray returns to her
captivating world of beasts, secrets, and vengeful gods in this follow-up. . . boast[ing] a more expansive world… Readers who easily lost themselves in Koffi and Ekon’s story will devour their continued journey. . . An engaging sequel gearing up for an explosive third book.” —Booklist

“A
propulsive mystery mixed with a moving coming-of-age tale and a touch of romance, Beasts of Prey asks: When we go into the jungle, who will we be when we come out?” —The New York Times Book Review

★ “This pan-African story, rife with betrayal and narrated through

Rich in magic and mythos, Beasts of Prey is a feast for all the senses. Prepare to be transported to Koffi’s world from the first page and find yourself lost not only in the dark thrill of the hunt but the poignant beats of emotion at the heart of this story. Gray’s writing is lyrical, her imagery vivid. I eagerly await whatever she pens next.” —Renée Ahdieh, New York Times bestselling author of The Beautiful

A fast-paced, rip-roaring ride that grabs you by the throat and never lets you go. A masterpiece of magic.” —Namina Forna, New York Times bestselling author of The Gilded Ones --This text refers to the hardcover edition.
