Publisher's Summary

Brought to you by Penguin.

The second novel in Marlon James' revolutionary Dark Star Trilogy is here.

In this mighty follow-up to his number one best seller Black Leopard, Red Wolf, Man Booker winner Marlon James once again draws on a rich tradition of African mythology, fantasy and history to imagine a mythic world, a lost child, a 177-year-old witch, a deadly regal chancellor and a mystery with many answers....

Part adventure tale, part chronicle of an indomitable woman - the witch Sogolon - who bows to no man, this is an unforgettable exploration of power, personality and the places where they overlap, set in a world at once ancient and startlingly modern.

In the words of Neil Gaiman, James has created 'a fantasy world as well realized as anything Tolkien made, with language as powerful as Angela Carter's'.

A brilliant, fascinating, and utterly unique story

Moon Witch Spider King is easily the best book Marlon James has written so far.
Easily.
And let me go one step further: it's also one of the best fantasy novels written to date.

A great second perspective

I loved hearing the tale from a different, deeper perspective. I can't wait for the third installment.
