The only thing matching the excitement surrounding Black Panther Wakanda Forever are the questions and disappointment surrounding the identity of the ruler of Wakanda. With a community still reeling from the loss of the iconic Chadwick Boseman a new king has risen for the fandom to love!
African American author Chase Bolling pens an epic fantasy set in a modern world cast back into medieval times combining science fiction and Afrofuturism with elements of historical fiction for a thrilling adventure in A Dread and Glorious Kingdom! The story begins with a secret government project suddenly trapping weapons technology in the Iron Age and sending societies worldwide into collapse.
When hate groups and corrupt officials threaten his inner-city home a nerdy Afro-indigenous ex-gang member leads his community in rebellion. The result is a visceral struggle to survive in a new dark age. As bloody battles and vicious conspiracies unfold,the seeds of a new nation are planted by a group of BIPOC rebels and their allies.
With masterful prose and provocative worldbuilding Bolling crafts a fantasy saga hailed as a worthy heir to A Game of Thrones! With weapons, armor and combat systems drawn from the ancient world and the African Diaspora, Bolling weaves a tapestry rich with history, metaphysics, mythology, and African American culture creating a truly unique fantasy setting. Tackling everything from fatherhood, to the environment, government corruption, media manipulation, and Black Lives Matter in a world filled with knights, magic, robots, and dragons; it’s no wonder the series’ opening volume has been hailed as “Stirring, gritty, connected, and epic. A great read” by Miles Cameron the author of The Red Knight, Against All Gods, and Artifact Space.
Drawing together the first three volumes of The Vanguard series: The Road of Resistance Part 1, The Road of Resistance Part 2, and The War We Make with all new content fans of romance books, dystopian books, post-apocalyptic fiction, and epic fantasy can delight in A Dread and Glorious Kingdom‘s brilliantly executed rendition of a modern dark age, that brings forward the same kind of BIPOC representation we see in the Black Panther franchise, but better!
