Product Details

Praise

“Perfect for fans of Divergent and Black Panther.” —In Touch Weekly 
 
“A Fascinating Dystopian Page-Turner” —The Root 
 
Nubia: The Awakening is a story with a familiar sci-fi trope of dystopian futures but is done in a revolutionary way that brings diversity, camaraderie and familiarity to the forefront.” —MadameNoire 
 
“This novel offers a powerful critique of capitalism, classism, and racial injustice . . . [and] combines a high-action plot with engaging characters and will keep readers on the edge of their seats. VERDICT: A complex dystopian novel that will circulate well with fans of Black Panther, Tomi Adeyemi, and Roseanne A. Brown.” —School Library Journal 
 
“Epps and Haynes’ characters are admirable; each of the narrators is given agency and motivation in a way that makes them memorable in their own right . . . Readers will find plenty of familiar sf and fantasy tropes here, but these are made fresh by the story highlighting the power of the African diaspora.”  —Booklist  
 
“Epps and Haynes skillfully build emotional and narrative suspense by weaving the cast members’ conflicting needs and expectations into an explosive adventure.” —Publishers Weekly
 
“A justifiable critique of today.” —Kirkus Reviews
